• Yeah, this makes us feel a little old: The June 27 show at the Port City Music Hall will be a 20th anniversary show for TWISTED ROOTS. SUN GODS IN EXILE (fresh off a release show for their debut album) and SIDECAR RADIO open, and there's word that original TR bassist NEIL COLLINS will sit in for a few songs.

• The SPENCER AND THE SCHOOL SPIRIT MAFIA album will be out before July's over.

DILLY DILLY's talking about an online release date for Of Art and Intention, her first full-length, of June 21. Sounds like it'll be free, with donations optional.

• The CAMBIATA are over. They'll play their last show July 10. This is a major bummer for the "Sibilance" staff. Expect a number of ramped-up side projects in quick fashion, though, which could be really great, akin to the breakups/hiatuses of CERBERUS SHOAL and RUSTIC OVERTONES.

• Folk-core duo ARBOREA's June 27 show at SPACE with MARIEE SIOUX, SONDRA SUN-ODEON, and DEAREST will celebrate the release of Leaves of Life, a collection of indie-folk tracks that has been curated and produced by Arborea's BUCK CURRAN and features other local types like MICAH BLUE SMALDONE, CURSILLISTAS, and BIG BLOOD, along with well-knowns like DEVENDRA BANHART.
