Kings of Leon, Kinch, and Not Missing the Lilith Fair in This Week's Issue

Ever wonder why Kings of Leon have such a massive following, even though critics love to hate them? This week's music feature offers up a few explanations on the love/hate phenomenon.

We've also got show previews for Guitar Shorty, Built to Spill, Kepi Ghoulie, and The Beautiful Train Wrecks.
