We love helping publicize a good cause around here, so we’re extremely pleased to tell you that Ben Harper, Jackson Browne, Taj Mahal and others will join forces May 3 to raise money to help advance and preserve folk music in Southern California by headlining the Claremont Folk Music Festival.

The Committee to Keep Music Evil has unveiled a summer European run by San Francisco psychedelic-rockers Brian Jonestown Massacre. Highlights include stops in Copenhagen, Denmark; Stockholm, Sweden; Manchester, U.K.; Paris; Koln, Germany; Leeds, U.K.; London and Benicassim, Spain.
