George Lindell, St. Vincent, Jon Rauhouse, and More in This Week's Issue

In this week's issue, Benjamin Leatherman takes a peak into the life of George Lindell, the motormouth Phoenix-based drummer who achieved internet stardom after a car accident yielded him a viral hit, "Reality Hits You Hard Bro." Lindell could used some fortune to go along with that fame, he informed us, or else he could end up living in his famous van.

M.T. Richards speaks with Annie Clark, the woman behind St. Vincent, about the aggression of her new record, Strange Mercy. We've also got shorter previews on Phoenix-based pedal steel master Jon Rauhouse, Primus, Opeth, Collie Buddz, World Class Thugs and DJ Seduce's Stax and Motown night at Crescent Ballroom.
