Settle down lovers, Bloodshot’s newest signing, THE DETROIT COBRAS, have announced their fall US tour — They’ll be on the road supporting their Bloodshot debut and the band’s first US release in four years.
Baby,” The Detroit Cobra’s first release on Bloodshot Records, is a detour off the beaten path, a collection of 20 inimitable, rocked-out renditions of mostly obscure R&B songs that pay homage to Detroit’s thick musical background reflecting back to Fortune Records and D-Town’s back catalog.

Sometimes a reunion can be an embarrassing thing. But X acquit themselves most admirably on the appropriately-titled Live In Los Angeles, taped November 26 and 27, 2004 in the city where the punk legends first burst into raucous life. With no more set decoration than a curtain with a large
On August 2nd, 2005, the Atlanta-based Terminus Records will release Get Myself Together, the latest solo effort from bluegrass legend Danny Barnes. Get Myself Together, a collection of 13 originals and select covers, is the follow up to Danny’s highly acclaimed 2003 release, Dirt On The Angel. The album is a showcase for the multi-instrumentalist singer/songwriter Barnes, who plays banjo, tuba, guitars, harmonicas, and more.
On this record, Grammy winning bassist/producer/engineer Garey Shelton, who also produced the record at his Seattle-based studio, Gary Shelton Productions, accompanies Barnes. Shelton also plays bass with The Believers and Bo Didley. Joining Barnes and Shelton is 19-year-old violin prodigy Brittany Hass (Darol Angers, Republic of Strings, Bruce Molsky, The Waybacks), who often performs with Barnes in the Yonder Mountain String Band.
Prior to the release of the record, Barnes will contribute banjo on Bill Frisell’s Canadian tour, which kicks off July 7th in Winnipeg at the Winnipeg Folk Festival and culminates with two shows in Chicago on August 8th at the Old Town School of Folk Music. In addition to performing with Frisell, Danny will open both shows to celebrate the release of Get Myself Together. Both Bill and Danny’s shows will be taped and played on a later date on XM Radio as part of Robbie Fulks’ Secret Country Radio Hour.
Barnes will celebrate the release of Get Myself Together with two CD release shows in the Pacific Northwest, including Friday, September 16th at Imbibe in Portland and Saturday, September 17 at the Tractor Tavern in Seattle.
This fall, Barnes will hit the road as a sideman for Tim O’Brien, opening on select dates.
In other news, earlier this year Barnes contributed banjo on Robert Earl Keens new CD What I Really Mean and recently accompanied him on several West Coast tour dates. He also produced Robyn Ludwick’s new CD For So Long, which will be released on July 12, 2005
