The Delgados are keeping tour diaries.

Reuters reviews a recent "Chicks with Attitude" show.

Mastodon's Bill Kelliher tells the Las Vegas Mercury that his band is similar to Moby Dick. "I mean, Captain Ahab is this crazy dude who gets all of these people together, and they jump on a boat to go in search of Moby Dick. Like, even if they die doing it, they know they've got to f*cking try anyway. I think you can look at our band in the same way. We have this white van that we all jump into and sacrifice our lives and our families and our friends back home to go on this quest for the rock."

Tucson Weekly interviews John Flansburgh of They Might Be Giants and talks about the band's next project. "We're working on this big DVD project; it's for kids. It's an ABC project, so it's all songs about the alphabet. And it's very multimedia; it's been very exciting to put together, because we've been working with all these animators, and there's a whole puppet component that's very cool."

Flagpole reviews Pylon's farewell show.

Also from Flagpole, an assessment of music in Athens in 2004 (so far).

The Hartford Courant reviews adult film star Jenna Jameson's autobiography. "It's the literary version of her films, accompanied by photos of her at work and as a child - a bizarre juxtaposition."

The Dallas Observer publishes a profile of the Wrens and their excellent 2003 album, The Meadowlands.
