Del Takes a Page Out of NIN’s Book

Idelt looks like Del the Funky Homosapien didn’t need any of the money that was left in his wallet over in El Segundo…get it?nothing? Well, looks like he has gone with some “indie” album release formula ala Radiohead and NIN and has released his new album (number 14 by our count) for free download.

the allman Brothers bandWell, the ever-present-on-impossible city’s-playlist rockers the Allman Brothers Band will, just as they have for the past 3 years,  headline two nights at the fifth annual Wanee Music Festival in Live Oak, Florida, on June 5 and 6th. The Wanee fest is especially noteworthy this year as it coincides with the band’s yearlong 40th anniversary extravaganza, which includes a 15-night run at New York’s Beacon Theatre. Helping the “Best Rock Album of Our Mom’s Time” Eat A Peach rockers celebrate at Wanee are Gov’t Mule, the Doobie Brothers, Toots and the Maytals, the Drive-By Truckers and many more jam-type greatness that’ll twang over the fest’s two days. Plus, the Derek Trucks Band will perform a special midnight set on Friday night and the Wailers will perform Exodus in its entirety. Tickets go on sale March 7th.
