News to Me

It looks like WZRD is cultivating an online presence of their own. It's about time! Note that scheduled Thursday Night live performances are posted there (including Illusion of Safety coming up), as well as reviews, and it looks like they're digitizing old reels of performances, particularly that of Jesus Lizard, who is playing here in Chicago in November.
