Jonathan Richman has a very extensive club tour planned for October. Newly posted dates show the artist playing places like The Parish Room in Austin, Texas on October 1, Sluggo’s in Pensacola, Florida on October 5, New York Society For Ethical Culture in New York City on October 14 and The Maintenance Shop in Ames, Iowa on October 28.

Swedish death metal band Opeth stomps through Japan in August, Australia in September and Europe in November and December. This is one of those updates where you really have to look at the schedule because mentioning three or four cities and venues just won’t do this routing justice. But don’t take our word for it. Look at the schedule!

Texan Hayes Carll manages to get out of the Lonestar State for shows throughout America and Canada. Dates include October 16 in Los Angeles at The Mint, October 23 in Portland (Oregon) at the Doug Fir Lounge, October 24 in Vancouver at Bitmore Cabaret, October 31 in Winnipeg atParkway Theatre, November 1 in Minneapolis at Cedar Cultural Center and November 8 in Tulsa at Bob’s.

And the Canadian Brass updates today with new dates for this year and next. New 2008 listings include October 14 in Cedar City, Utah at Heritage Theater, October 18 in Richardson, Texas at Eisemann Center For Performing Arts, December 5 in Omaha, Nebraska at Holland Performing Arts Center and December 11 in Nashville, Tennessee at Schermerhorn Symphony Center.

Since the last update we also “improved” the schedules for Compadres, Carol Welsman, Campbell Brothers, Alex Cuba Band, Damien Jurado, Disturbed, Eagles, Eric Bibb, Good 4 Nothing, Mike Seeger, Meshuggah, O.A.R., Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Richard Bona and The Blind Boys Of Alabama.

But wait! There’s more! We still have a few tons of raw concert data sitting on our loading dock waiting to be worked, shaped, culled and baked as we convert it into useful information. Don’t miss your last briefing of the day in a posting we like to call The Closing Bell. That’s coming up around 5 pm (PDT), from!
