Bob Corritore, Titus Andronicus, Al Jardine, and More in This Week's Issue

This week's music feature is on Bob Corritore, the supreme blues enthusiast. He discusses how leaving Chicago resulted in a series of fortunate events for him in Phoenix. Between being a disc jockey and co-owning the Rhythm Room, he has plenty to keep himself busy.

Aggressive New Jersey punks Titus Andronicus still sound like an angry Conor Oberst, yet are being compared to Bruce Springsteen nevertheless. Meanwhile, Al Jardine gets sappy about always being a Beach Boy at heart.

Plus we've got show previews for The Necronauts, Red Letter Drive, Gentlemen Afterdark, You Hang Up, and Screaming Females.
