The Sound & the fury

Pop Pistol is back, Melissa goes to Nashville and Radiohead wants your TV set

Pop Pistol is back from touring (for a while) and the Melissa Ludwig Band is going to Nashville (but not for good).

Pistol’s all-ages Disappearing Edges EP Tour Homecoming Show will take place at Jack’s Bar on Saturday, July 2. The music starts at 10 p.m. with Viet-Ruse and Blackbird Sing, and you need $7 to get in.

That same night, Melissa Ludwig will kick off her new tour at Tycoon Flats with a no-cover, full-band show at 8 p.m. This isn’t just another tour for Ludwig, either. Both her and husband Mitch Connell will be touring as an acoustic duo through Dallas, Tulsa, Des Moines, St. Louis, Bloomington, Louisville, and Little Rock. But the July 12 and 13 shows in Nashville (at Hotel Indigo and Richard’s Café, respectively) have a special meaning for them.

“Nashville is Ground Zero for songwriters of all genres,” said Ludwig, who will also play a free show July 1 at the Blue Star Brewery. “It’s an exciting place to listen to music and I’ll take any stage time we can get there. The venues we are playing are specifically for songwriters, so I am interested in hearing other talent as well.”

I know: the Sound and the Fury is meant to highlight local info, but there are things you just can’t ignore. Case in point: Radiohead.

Throughout the summer, the band will release a series of limited-edition 12-inch vinyl records featuring remixes from The King of Limbs. The first release is out on Tuesday, July 5: “Little by Little” (Caribou remix) and “Lotus Flower” (Jacques Greene remix). This and the future 12-inch albums will be available through radiohead.com and selected independent record stores, including our own Hogwild Records (1824 N Main). Call (210) 733-5354 to make sure they have your copy.

But there’s more: the band posted a video for “Staircase,” a new song, on radiohead.com/deadairspace, and it’s everything you would expect from Radiohead (if anything from the exploratory outfit can ever truly be expected): it’s magical and groovy. The song was recorded during a session for the BBC Worldwide Music Television’s Live from the Basement series, a program created by Radiohead producer/engineer Nigel Godrich that will air in July in England and with select carriers around the world. Call your cable company and demand that they show the 55-minute concert: Radiohead – The King of Limbs: Live from the Basement. No audience, no presenter. Just Radiohead performing its latest album in its entirety. Top that, Time Warner. Or show the damn thing.
