Cory Branan is just one of the few Bloodshot bands currently or about to hit up European roads (just check out the tour dates for Ha Ha Tonka, Lydia Loveless and Scott H Biram) -- he's currently across the pond as part of the European leg of the very popular Revival Tour. You can follow Cory's overseas adventures via his Twitter -- or try to hit up a show yourself!

Late in 2011, hometown heroes Wilco decided to celebrate the release of its latest album, The Whole Love, by setting up a Chicago residency and playing shows at several of our fair city's lauded music venues. Jon Langford's Skull Orchard was handpicked to open up the Wilco show at The Vic, where he and the band played songs from the 2011 SO mega-reissue, Skull Orchard Revisited. Check out the rest of the pics from the night by Zero Studio here.
On the heels of the release of their Bloodshot debut, Want More, post-soul evangelists JC Brooks And The Uptown Sound virtually took over the Chicago airwaves today with morning appearances on Chicago Public Radio's "848" and ABC 7's "Windy City Live." If you didn't get to catch the broadcasts, never fear! Listen to the 848 appearance here, and watch the WCL performance here!
