Bloodshot Briefing: In The News

By Matt Harness

* Exene Cervenka, recently diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, has finished her solo record for Bloodshot, though she is touring with X this summer.

"It has the passion of X without all the loud," she told her Bloodshot minders.

It's called Somewhere Gone and is scheduled for release in October.

* Bloodshot is hosting parties across the country to celebrate its 15th anniversary. The first was last weekend in Pittsburgh. Chicago will get its party on Sept. 12 at the Hideout (lineup TBA). Some other party dates:

When: Aug. 22
Where: Madison, Wis.
Lineup: Justin Townes Earle, Bottle Rockets, Bobby Bare Jr., Ha Ha Tonka, Deadstring Brothers and Deano Waco and the Meat Purveyors

When: Aug. 23
Where: Minneapolis, Minn.
Lineup: Bottle Rockets, Waco Brothers, Bobby Bare Jr., Ben Weaver, Ha Ha Tonka, Deadstring Brothers and Deano Waco and the Meat Purveyors

* In case you didn't catch the Deadstring Brothers or Ha Ha Tonka while they were in Chicago, you can listen to streaming broadcasts of their tunes this month. Deadstring Brothers will be on WNMC out of Traverse City at 5 p.m. CST on July 17, while Ha Ha Tonka is live in studio at Seattle's KEXP at 2 p.m. CST on July 31

* Just got word that Andre Williams, fresh off spirited shows at Taste of Chicago and FitzGerald's last month, is in Detroit working on a follow-up record to his 2008 Can You Deal With It? Oh, he's 72.

* "All signs point to a favorable verdict" on the Bottle Rockets' new project, Lean Forward, according to Rick Teverbaugh of Country Standard Time.

* "A pretty manicure and a frilly skirt never stopped Rosie Flores from tossing off a rippin' guitar solo," Rolling Stone once said. Rosie is set to release Girl of the Century on Bloodshot this fall, according to this Rush PR News release.

* Ben Weaver "explores territories not traditionally associated with the singer-songwriter" on The Ax in the Oak, according to Aullidos Howls. "These are slow, quiet songs where wild animals and urban landscapes coexist."

* Bloodshot Records has 930 Facebook friends.

* Bloodshot Tweet of the Week: "Coast to coast with tatter and toast!"
