At last night's show in Austin, Straylight Run's John Nolan and Shaun Cooper both said the band hopes to start working on a full length as early as Spring 2010, but there are no set plans as of yet. A review of the tour can be seen here.
Sunny Day Real Estate have been performing some new material while out on tour. A live version of "10" (as it appears on their set list) can be seen in the replies. My review of last night's show in Austin can be seen here.
A review of Grizzly Bear's Austin City Limits aftershow can be seen here. I spoke with Chris Taylor after the show and it seems he has started his own label, Terrible Records, and he will release his side project, Cant, off of it Oct. 13.
I posted a short breakdown of the Summer Crush Tour's stop in Atlanta, GA last night. You can find it here. Don't forget to use our Show Review / Set-Lists forum to post about shows you've been to recently.
I had the chance to catch the Saint Louis stop of the Sherwood/Mae/Relient K show last night. I've posted my thoughts about the show right here. Before the show I also got a chance to sit down with Dan for Sherwood and ask him a few questions. Look for the interview to be posted sometime later this week.
