Sebadoh, Seedy George Jones, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and SSLYBY, plus This Day in Music
Music Tonight: Nineties Indie Rock stalwarts Sebadoh bring their "Bakesale/Harmacy Remembering Time Tour" to Newport's Southgate House tonight. The tour is in honor of the recent reissues of the 1994 and 1996 albums in the tour title.

Captain Beefheart is dead. What a suckass Christmas present.
