It’s always a great week when Phish announces tour dates, but this particular announcement was a spectacular victory for West Coast fans. Basically this tweet sums up exactly how I was going into this week vs. how I’m finishing it…

Dominic from Big Gigantic was the one that tweeted out this news as it dropped; he’ll be joining Snoop Dogg, The Roots, Chaka Khan, Joey Bada$$, Trombone Shorty & Cory Henry for an EPIC Super Jam at Okeechobee Music Festival called PoWow!. That’ll be a good one.
Ty Segall is out with a new album today called Freedom’s Goblin. Available for purchase on vinyl and cassette like the hipsters be doing these days.
Watch the new Justin Timberlake video “Say Something” featuring Chris Stapleton. The video was directed by La Blogothèque.
Calexico is back with a new album called The Thread That Keeps Us.
R.I.P. Hugh Masekela. I’ll admit I wasn’t much familiar with the art and music that he put out, but I’m glad the tributes have turned me onto the music here. It’s really incredible stuff. Streaming some stuff on Spotify right now, but eyeing grabbing this re-release of Hope on vinyl. Worth it?
Shape The Future is the new release from Nightmares on Wax. On the list for today.
What else is happening?
