Speaking of Dylan, his new album Together Through Life, which has already been described as sounding like "a Chess record from the '50s," is released April 28th. Go to bobdylan.com to hear an interview with the bard. The Hard Lessons also have a brand new Zach Shipps-produced album, Arms Forest, released soon, their first without original drummer Christophe Zajac-Denek. Look for a review in Metro Times soon. Augie and Korin are just one of many Detroit-based units headed to Austin for South by Southwest this week; they are scheduled to play a Metro Times-sponsored show at the Soho Lounge on Friday, March 20th, at midnight.
The Hard Lessons: A lot on the horizon...
(and, no, that isn't an outtake from the Dead Weather video!)
