For the third week in total, out of 6 weeks on the chart, Lizzo's "Water Me" is No. 1 With all the accolades and big appearances she's done recently this probably didn't phase her, but Bill Nye, The Science Guy dancing down the cat walk to "Juice", can it get any better?!

Last weekends Oscar ceremony had low ratings and little drama of real note when you consider Billie Eilish, bouncing back upto Number Two this week, caused the biggest social media scandal with a 'quizzical glance' at the stage during a singing skit by Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph.

Highest upward movers of the week are The Black Keys, who are taking a break from the road, a new tactic of theirs to try not to burn out again. They'll start back up for the huge Shaky Knees Festival May 1st then a short run through Canada.

The combination of Khruangbin and Leon Bridges, at #7 was born out of them touring together. The EP came out last Friday and gained a decent 6.9 on Pitchfork and they're both playing the Hinterland festival in St. Charles, Iowa July 31- Aug 2nd, tickets are on sale this Friday.

Kicking off a year of celebration at First Avenue for their 50th Anniversary is the first Mainroom performance from Heart Bones, tickets will go on sale this Friday at 10am.

The Slow Rush is one of the most appropriate album titles ever, as it seems we have been waiting for Tame Impala's new one forever! It's finally here this Friday, after being touted for over a year, so no wonder they threw some big parties today in their homeland down under.

Highest new entry is from Pearl Jam who's Gigaton comes out March 27th followed by a World tour which doesn't include the Twin Cities... yet.

While in town to play at The Palace last week Michael Kiwanuka, at thirteen, stopped by The Current to do a Theft of the Dial with Bill DeVille, playing Bill's 'Time Machine' theme tune!

Juliana Hatfield stopped by for a chat with me on air last week while she was in town and mentioned that Matthew of Nada Surf is her all time favorite singer, they once toured together. He's also one of the nicest 'rock stars' I've ever met, when we did an in-store together many years ago. He did 6 of those in one day in Cambridge, UK, near where I was born and will kick off his tour there next week and slips into our basement.
