Headlines! Watson Twins tonight, Green Day, Elvis and more

It's been awhile since I've done this, but here's the latest in music news for you, dear reader.


Mumford & Sons announced a fall tour that takes them all over the U.S., except Omaha. There's a date in between Denver and Minneapolis that they have nothing booked. Someone in Omaha should book them before someone in Kansas City or Des Moines does.

• Check out a review and setlist of Brandon Flowers' first solo show in Vegas. Did he do any Killers songs?

• Tonight at the Waiting Room is the Watson Twins, who got billing on Jenny Lewis' first solo album and tour and opened for M. Ward last year at Slowdown. I talked to Chandra, one of the twins to preview tonight's show.

• Saddle Creek Records band Land of Talk posted "making of" photos on Facebook for the video of "Quarry Hymns."

Outside Lands went down last weekend in San Francisco. Rolling Stone has some pretty sweet photos. And Spin names their favorite sets.

• Who's playing the New York Jets' home opener? Green Day and Slash. But not together. If they did, that would be a weird set.

• 33 years ago on this date, Elvis Presley kicked the bucket. CMT looks at their 10 favorite performances by the King.

YACHT explains how they got the name YACHT. (It's tough to begin and end a sentence with the same word.)

• Has anyone been aching for some Belle & Sebastian? Well, you're going to get plenty now that they've announced an album released date, album cover and TV show.
