LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

W hen a viable music scene loses a home, with any luck it'll reemerge somewhere else. So the indie scene that disappeared from Nashville has steadily been building down the road in Murfreesboro.

Plans are for the Houston Continental to be a bad-ass big-city nightclub as well, even more impressive than its smaller Austin cousin.

Steve Roach's musical art involves soundscapes and textures, not tunes, with sampling techniques and alterations that create tones that seem familiar, even though they don't exist naturally.

Plus, the Grifters, Trisha Yearwood and Lee Ann Womack, and more.
