Concert Announcements: David Byrne, Jenny Lewis, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks and more...

I've been away this weekend at Lollapalooza (write up and pics soon...I'm too tired to tackle that now) and came back to see a few exciting concert announcements. David Byrne (formerly of Talking Heads) will be playing the Uptown on October 19th according to Pollstar. No word on tickets yet but be sure to get them quick because I imagine this will sell out quickly...and for very good reason.

Jenny Lewis will be playing at The Granada in Lawrence on September 18th. Once again this is according to Pollstar, so no word on when tickets will go on sale. As always, with any Jenny Lewis news, I like to take this opportunity to post photo's of Jenny (formerly of The Wizard).

Other notable concert updates: Another former...Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks will be playing Liberty Hall on November 5th with Blitzen Trapper opening.

The fantastic live act The Avett Brothers will be at Liberty Hall as well on September 16th. Rick Rubin is producing their new album for his label, American Records, which could be a great thing (the last 5 Johnny Cash records) or a horrible thing (Weezer's Make Believe).

Ray LaMontagne will be at The Uptown in KC on October 21st.

Al Green will be at the Midland Theatre on November 29th.
