Over at the soon-to-be-even-more-formulaic C-J, the Weekend has stories about The Lebowski Fest; an interview with Greg Laswell, scheduled to play the Zanzabar on Tuesday; a Webb Wilder phoner by J. L. Puckett. plus an assortment of reviews and regional shows. The Buzz has news that “Nightline” is coming to the Lebowski Fest. That should be real fab PR for the ‘Ville.

Three Inches of Blood

Metal fans heading for the Three Inches of Blood show on September 30 at Expo 5 should be advised to take some extra cash, as the band is set to release their new project, Here Waits Thy Doom, on September 8. They’re also shooting a new videp for the first single, “Battles and Brotherhood.” You’ll probably get a look at that during the show.

Tim Krekel Update – “NOT Diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer”

Apr 242009

Krekel has emphatically denied, through a close friend, that he has pancreatic cancer, as reported by J. L. Pucket in today’s Courier-Journal.. He says that the tumor that was removed has not been identified as any particular cancer, if cancer at all.

According to the Courier-Journal’s J. L. Puckett in today’s paper, Tim Krekel has been given a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer.

Krekel recently underwent extensive abdominal surgery, including the removal of part of his pancreas. A fund-raiser is set for tomorrow (Saturday) at the Zeppelin Cafe, 1036 E. Burnett Ave. Musicians appearing include Lamont Gillispie & 100 Proof, Mickey Clark, John Gage, Steve Eilers, Bobby Watson, Chick Pea and more. They will play on an outdoor stage set up for the annual Schnitzelburg Walk, starting at 5 p.m. Troubadors of Divine Bliss will perform inside at 11:30. Donations will be accepted. A three-dollar cover charge for the Troubadours of Divine Bliss, who will be playing inside, will also be contributed.

Look for the Charlie Daniels Band and Halfway To Hazard on the Waterfront on April 29 as part of Kroger’s Fest-A-Ville. It’s a free show with a Pegasus Pin, starts at 8 p.m. and is presented by Friends of Coal, an ‘organization’ (?) or website (www.friendsofcoal.org) run by the West Virginia Coal Association. Daniels is noted for his rightwing political views, so expect some proselytizing on behalf of coal or at least some handouts. Global warming? What global warming?

New Rufus Huff CD

The eponymous release by Rufus Huff arrived in the mail yesterday; I put it on the changer for a spin, especially because it features Louisvillian Greg Martin on guitar. It’s clear from the first few songs that this is real good, straight-forward, old school, guitar-based rock and rock ‘n’ roll. More comments to be added later.
