Bloggy Goodness: Monsters Of Folk

Back in 2004, the formidable trio of Conor Oberst, Jim James and M. Ward teamed up for a tour they dubbed Monsters Of Folk. Each artist delivered a solo set, where they often interpreted each others material, that often culminated with all three on stage at the end for some spirited covers and a mixed bag of the artists’ tunes. Earlier this year news surfaced that trio had plans to collaborate and record an album together. Well, the band’s debut effort now has a release date and will hit store shelves on September 22.


Finally, Several months after hordes of Bruce Springsteen fans were up in arms after seemingly being being shut out of The Boss’ recent IZOD Center shows, the Newark Star-Ledger went digging for the truth about how so many premium seats ended up on the secondary market so quickly – which may or may not be so surprising. The reporter discovered that “1,126 seats in the four sections closest to the stage, but only 108 of those tickets were ever for sale to the public…In all, 2,262 seats were held back from public sale, for the band, its record company and agent and the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority…that number represents about 12 percent of the total.”
