Mason Brothers, Tim Reynolds, TheRadio.com

Friend Ariel B. reports: "Just an FYI that Zak's (that's her husband) band, the Mason Brothers, are playing at the Camel at 1621 W. Broad Street on Thursday. It's their CD release show for their new album, The Sun, The Moon, and the Sea. The show starts at 8 and I imagine the Mason Brothers'll be on by 9:30 or so. There's a $5 cover, and the CD will be on sale for an additional $5. Hope to see some of you there!" The Mason Brothers web site says that their last album, Carnival Sky, drew comparisons "to the late Nick Drake, the late Elliott Smith, and Roger Waters of Pink Floyd."

Also tonight at the Capital Ale House Downtown, is Tim Reynolds & TR3. Show starts at 8 PM and tickets are $25. The Capital Ale House site says:
"This will be their last tour date as Tim will go on tour with Dave Matthews this summer.
He sold out his last show and we had to turn people away. Get your tickets in advance while they last.

Tim Reynolds has been playing music all of his life. Starting as a bass player in a gospel band in his hometown of St. Louis to his break through band in the 80’s TR3 and forward to recording with and touring with the Dave Matthews Band and the Dave Matthews Tim Reynolds Acoustic Duo. Tim’s progression has continued through his last 8 years on the road as a solo acoustic guitar wizard playing for packed houses who have come to realize this is not Dave side man this is one of the most talented and thoughtful players on the circuit today!!

Now things have come full circle and TR3 is back again in 2008 to Rock and Funk your house down. The songs will be a mix of updated Tim classics to wild covers of everything from James Brown to Prince to Tim’s newest catalogue of material he is preparing just for this tour."

As an FYI, Dave Matthews is not on tour now, and if he's in C'ville, well, I'm just sayin'...

Also, check out a new online radio station, TheRadio.com. Its like Sirius or XM but free. They have 167 different formats, so you're sure to find something you like. I'm not sure if they are beta testing this, because there is no advertising and no way to link to buy an album so I'm not sure how they are making their money.
