3 Dec. Mark Lanegan: Lanegan's old band The Screaming Trees were a fairly big part of the Seattle sound of the early 90s, shadowed of course by Nirvana. Since then he's gone on a more singer-songwriter path, venturing into some gospel territory.
. Land Of Talk with opening band Think About Life. is growing by leaps and bounds. They are currently touring Canada with indie rock legends Broken Social Scene and playing back-up support for their US tour. Some critics have dubbed their first solo EP "some are lakes" as one of the best records of the year.

16 Dec. The (International) Noise Conspiracy
This much talked about Swedish "psycadelic punk" bunch give you a cross-historical melange of styles, mixed up, revved up, slowed down, red pills and blue pills--take them all!
