Prolific singer/songwriter and professional weirdo R. Stevie Moore breaks his own six-decade survival record today. Happy birthday, you wonderfully freaky fellow, you. Check out some of my favorite Moore A/V below.
Singer / songwriter Chris Smither grew up and learned his three first chords in New Orleans, but he’s made his home and the bulk of his music in Boston. Mel Minter chats with Smither about Zen, baseball, blues and existential strategy in this week’s issue. Read all about it here.

Only 20 minutes east of Albuquerque (in the mountains where it’s 10 degrees cooler) Wildlife West is equipped with venue facilities and hosts regular events. Beginning on Friday, July 29, and running through Sunday, July 31, is the biggest of the year: The ninth Wildlife West Music Festival. The three-day fest features two shaded stages (attendees will not be sitting in the sun, promoters say) and more than a dozen performing acts of the acoustic persuasion—bluegrass, Western swing, old time and folk, to name a few.
