CNN just reported that the Van Halen reunion tour is on again, featuring David Lee Roth, Eddie and Alex Van Halen. They’ve ditched Michael Anthony, which is sheer madness. I don’t think people realize how much Anthony contributes to the band’s overall sound through his harmonies. They’ll find out when they hear Eddie’s son Wolfgang croaking along to “Jamie’s Cryin’.” Despite that, I will be in attendance at this show if it comes to the Qwest Center. Whoops. Looks like Reuters has the story now, here.
Other than that, nothing to report. The Waiting Room is hosting a show this evening with a band called The Steed that I’ve never heard of. Paper Owls is opening, but they also have their CD release show this weekend at PS Collective. Also on the bill is Ric Rhythm and the Revengers. $7, 9 p.m.
This week you’ll get a double-dip of The Rentals’ Matt Sharp — a feature story about the band online tomorrow, followed by a column of leftover interview material on Thursday. The show is this Friday night at Slowdown, by the way. Get an early head start by checking out Dave Liebowitz’s The Dark Stuff podcast. The special edition is dedicated to The Rentals and includes an interview with Matt Sharp along with lots of music. A great listen, indeed. You can listen to it here.
