Awhile ago we posted a clip of the weird as hell upcoming Bob Dylan film. Now we’ve got the trailer:

David A. Cobb has been running Houston Calling on donewaiting.com since March 2003, almost as long as the site has been up. Since starting his column of the Houston music scene, David has become a man about town, truly knowing what’s up in his city.
I’ve always felt that we weren’t doing David justice having him be another blog on the bloated and confusing donewaiting.com site… so after some talking and domain buying, David has set up shop on his own site… Please point your bookmarks to houstoncalling.net.
Good luck, David. You’ll always be in our hearts…. At this rate you’ll be the mayor of Houston in about 8 months.
Columbus Ohio, we salute you. 7-10pm tonight at Surly Girl Saloon. Always free. New music, old music, weird stuff, and a bunch of vinyl I just bought at Shake It Records in Cincy.
Columbus OH’s The Sun have had a rocky time with their former record label, Warner Broz. The band is finally out of contract, though, and are gearing up what seems to be 20 different releases.
The band has just unleashed two compilations, “Ohio Tigers” and “1999″, featuring rarities and B-sides recorded during their time at Warner. These are digital only releases.
They’re currently recording new material with Mike McCarthy (Spoon, Trail of Dead…), and hope to have their second proper full length out soon. I imagine working with a larger independent will be good for both their career and sanity.
One might be Dan. The Other might be Kyle. They might both be Dan.
Many more examples found here.
I heard Bob Barker is going to be hosting this new game but I can’t confirm it yet.
From the band:
Well….you gotta play the hand you’re dealt….right?
We (Two Cow Garage) need a new drummer. Ours quit w/o proper notice and we didn’t see it coming.
Must be willing to tour a lot (100-200 out-of-town shows/year). There is no guarantee that he or she will make a lot of money, in fact I can almost guarantee the opposite. But you will get to travel all over the United States and Western Europe playing rock and roll, and get paid at least enough to eat every day and have a roof over your head when you sleep. Sometimes we’ll even be able to pay you handsomely. Other times, you’ll live off of $10.00/day.
We’re looking for somebody to be IN the band, not just a fill in.

A few years back I booked a Damon and Naomi show in Columbus OH. Kurihara from Ghost was also with them. It was one of my most favorite shows I ever had the pleasure to put on, even though this event was enjoyed by a handful of people.
On September 25, the band is releasing a new album on their own label, 20/20/20. Besides Kurihara, the album features string players from Espers. Here’s the first song being made available, “Cruel Queen.”
MP3: Cruel Queen

Between the closing of Lime Spider and Little Brother’s in Ohio, we’re at Red Alert Alpha 1. Shit is getting bad. Details here.
Hmm, I wonder if this is going to display..
Guess it did! (for now..)
