The Weekend Desk Report

A lot of these journalists proclaiming their love of Bob Dylan clearly do not get what he's been saying all these years or they would conduct themselves quite differently.

Same for a lot of Bruce Springsteen fans.

As Kurt Cobain sang,

He's the one
Who likes all our pretty songs
And he likes to sing along
And he likes to shoot his gun
But he knows not what it means
Knows not what it means

Or, as Roger Waters sang: Did you understand the music, Yoko, or was it all in vain?

But in front of a live audience at the Goose Island Tap Room, Beach Slang songwriter James Alex strips away the volume, but not the heart, for an intimate acoustic performance and conversation with Jim and Greg. Plus, the new record by Southern rockers Drive-By Truckers, and the story behind a forgotten garage classic."
