Full refunds are available for all dates except Coachella. Wilco's next scheduled performance is a May 28th gig in Barcelona, Spain, which will be followed with ...  | More »

    South by Southwest is just a fancy term for spring break for the music industry. Held annually in Austin, Texas, it's also a chance to see as many bands as possible in intimate settings before they hit big settings. Norah Jones played Starbucks during SXSW 2002, and we're guessing she won't be back there in 2004. Here's the best of what we saw: Best Stage Banter: Ottawa native Kathleen Edwards has a pretty voice and a dirty mouth. During her Antone's show, she annou...  | More »

    The Coachella Arts and Music Festival was started in 1999 by Southern California promoters Goldenvoice. Patterned after European summer festivals, the event was intended to celebrate the eclecticism of music through a diverse, left-of-center lineup. The tricky part, of course, is that the event still needed to make money. So, when this year's talent roster was announced, and such mainstream acts as the Foo Fighters, current it-band the Strokes, Prodigy, Oasis, Cake, fashionable singer-so...  | More »
