News & cool stuff
@ Gone but not forgotten: The members of Baroness no longer reside in Savannah, but you can keep up with our favorite metal monsters with the July 17 of their latest, Yellow & Green, on Relapse Records.
@ Lindsay Buckingham, who doesn't appear to tour all that often, has dates in Atlanta (July 28 at Center Stage) and in the Charleston area (Aug. 4, North Charleston Coliseum & Performing Arts Center). Thought somebody might want to know.
