Jeremy remains on top making it 3 weeks in total for "Ghost." He was anything but a ghost for SXSW, getting good reviews and joining us for the Public Radio Rocks day along with chart peers Phantogram, Temples and Lucius.

Our friends at NPR liked Haley Bonar's show in Austin at the hallowed Presbyterian Church venue and our intrepid reporter, veteren of 10 SXSW's Mark Mallman, found things to love, even when sober!

Arcade Fire continue their tradition of having Rock The Garden guests as openers. While here they had Dan Deacon, you can still hear that show here. This week they announced that tUnE-yArDs will join them on the road in Denver and beyond during April. Merrill's new album is coming early May.

New entry this week Gary Clark Jr. made lots of new friends when he recently opened for Kings of Leon. He's down under playing some big festivals in Australia right now and returns for Summerfest in Milwaukee June 28th.

Another new entry for Drive By Truckers, our CD of the Week this week. In his review Bill DeVille says; " There is definitely something in the water in Muscle Shoals!" They'll be back at First Ave with Blitzen Trapper on March 27th.
