Sounds Good: Lyle Lovett @ Uptown, KS Food Truck Fest @ Lawrence Warehouse Arts District

You can’t keep a dead man down, apparently…

Next week, Xscape, the second posthumous Michael Jackson album, will be released. Critics received an advanced screening of the record at a private party, and their reviews have been somewhat mixed.  I’d say the majority is in the camp that this is a real MJ record, while a decent-sized minority sees the release as only capable of tarnishing the musical legend’s legacy.

Either way, don’t think for a second that there’s not going to be a “new” album rolling out every few years for the next several decades.  Word is, Jackson has a massive amount of unreleased recordings and demos that never quite made the cut.

I haven’t heard the record yet, but I suppose I can make my own judgment next week…

Lyle Lovett and his Acoustic Group at the Uptown in KC

It’s a good time to be a Lyle Lovett fan in KC.  It seems like he rolls through town about twice a year – often with a slightly different group of talented musicians in tow.  This time around, he’s bringing his acoustic show, which skews a bit more towards the blues and jazz than the traditional country that some might associate with the Texas legend.  This is a seated show, and there are still a fair amount of tickets left, ranging from around $55 – 85.

Kansas Food Truck Festival in the Warehouse Arts District in Lawrence

This is the first go round for this little shindig, located in the increasingly trafficked Warehouse Arts District in East Lawrence.  Not only are there going to be a bunch of food trucks selling their wares, but there are some bands, too.  Truckstop Honeymoon, Wells the Traveler, and Psychic Heat (recent winners of Farmer’s Ball) will be throwing out sounds, and I know there will be beer flowing.  So hop on your retro Schwinn and check it out.

    “We’ve recently heard much about how Fiat-Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne plans to pump up the volume on Jeep sales, inaugurating new models and global dealerships. But that’s the stuff outlined in five-year plans; right now, advertising and special editions are at the fore, and the late Michael Jackson, too. Jeep has begun airing two commercials to push its Altitude Editions, Call of Summer and Lovers of the Game, that feature the song “Love Never Felt So Good” from Jackson’s upcoming album of new music.”

    guess at least that song can’t be all bad…

    Michael Jackson should have been in prison for life.

    Another hero of the New Amerika.
