J.D. Stooks, 311, Ree Boado, Open Mike Eagle and More in This Week's Issue

This week's main music feature is on singer-songwriter J.D. Stooks, who almost gave up music when the songs that'd always come easily to him stopped appearing.

A tragedy -- a friend's suicide -- shook him up enough to start writing again, and thus he has a new album called Shutterbug out.

Also look for smaller advances on shows by 311, Death AngelSebedoah, and Lucero.
