Tour Dates: Van Returns To Astral Weeks

Over the last few years, the hot thing has been get indie-rock bands to perform a classic album from their catalog. Well, for his upcoming residency at the Hollywood Bowl, legendary singer-songwriter Van Morrison will perform arguably his best album- Astral Weeks – in its entirety. Joining Van The Man will be a number of the musicians who originally performed on the album. The three night run – set to take place on November 7, 8 & 9 – will be filmed for a DVD release called Astral Weeks Live At The Hollywood Bowl.

If you aren’t into the full album thing, then maybe you’ll dig one of these recently announced tours…

Finally, several months back roots/Americana magazine No Depression ceased publication with the promise of relaunching as a web magazine in the coming months. Well, they have made good on that promise and have recently relaunched with a brand spanking new website and some amazing content. As a way of celebrating this No Depression is sponsoring a number of a parties around the country over the next few weeks featuring an impressive roster of talent that includes Lucinda Williams, Minus 5, Alejandro Escovedo and Nick Lowe, as well as dropping a hint of a full festival to take place in Seattle next July.
