Azure Ray announced yesterday that the street date for As Above So Below, their latest 6-song set on Saddle Creek, drops Sept. 4. Expect dope beats: “We enlisted my husband and Andy LeMaster (Bright Eyes, Now It’s Overhead) as our dream team,” said Orenda Fink, wife to Todd Fink of The Faint.

In other Creek news, Cursive announced an extensive summer and fall tour that begins at the end of July and brings them to Slowdown Oct. 28 opening for their old pals Minus the Bear. I can never get enough Cursive…

What else?

Oh yeah, the Red Sky Music Festival begins tonight at the Ameritrade Ballpark. Rascal Flatts.

Remember a couple years ago, when Red Sky was first announced, how people thought it was going to be a significant event?
