The Baseball Project Rock Maxwell’s!

Hiya, I’m back on duty after a brief hiatus filled with moving house, completing my PhD thesis and whatnot. Anyway, here’s a brief recap of all the exciting events of the past few days; more updates to follow.

First of all, The Baseball Project (i.e. Scott McCaughey, Steve Wynn, Linda Pitmon and Mike Mills in lieu of his R.E.M. bandmate Peter Buck) played two kickass shows at Maxwell’s, Hoboken, NJ on 12 August & at SolidSound in North Adams, MA on 14 August. Read some great reports from the shows here: WWOD, Inklake, Times Union and Courant, and a short video is embedded below. May we suggest that they add Mike as their permanent band member? They seem to be having such great fun together!

In other news, you must have stumbled upon this Ken Stringfellow interview, because it was quoted everywhere. If our man Ken is to be believed, R.E.M.’s new album will be very old skool. thumbs up

Finally, only five days left to support the Antenna documentary. The filmmakers have already raised almost $5000, but they are still about $1000 short of their fundraising goal; so if you are willing and able to back this project, please hurry!
