As summer begins to wind down, we’re getting excited about all the great shows on the horizon this fall, especially when we found out about the first ever Paste Tour. The 15-city package tour, sponsored by the music and culture magazine, will feature the roots and Americana lineup of Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit, Langhorne Slim, Jesse Skyes & Paul Wandscher and the Mimicking Birds.

Finally, with full album shows being all the rage over the last few years, pop-rock act Weezer recently revealed to MTV.com that they were looking into a tour where they’d spend two nights in a city to play all of the Blue Albumand longtime fan favorite album Pinkerton in their entirety on consecutive evenings. The band, who has generally avoided playing tunes off of their sophomore release, is currently pitching the idea to promoters to see if there would be enough interest for the endeavor. In other Weezer news, the alt-rock band will release their eighth studio album, Hurley, which features the mug of Lost star Jorge Garcia on the cover, on September 14.
