This week on the B Side

Man do I love this week's Artist on Artist. Robert "Kool" Bell from Kool & the Gang talking to Wayne Montana from the Eternals and I Kong Kult does exactly what I want an Artist on Artist to do, which is to get two musicians whose paths might not otherwise ever cross on the phone together to get deep on their musical processes. Montana's Kool & the Gang superfan status and Kool's coolness work together so nicely. That "Jungle Boogie" story is my jam.

Also in this week's issue, Gossip Wolf tosses out a few more Lollapalooza lineup predictions—which, given the Wolf's history of nailing festival bookings well before they're announced, are definitely worth noting. Three Beats has news about the upcoming A John Cage Festival, a tribute to late string man Sandy Bull, and a birthday party for local punk label Underground Communique. And in the Soundboard we recommend upcoming shows by Hunx & His Punx, Heavy Cream, Shooter Jennings, Chairlift, Seun Kuti & Egypt 80, Keith Jarrett, and more.
