LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

S ome think the New Era began with Sam Phillips and that all musical -- nay, all cultural -- events before him should be dated Before Sam, in his honor.

Fueled by a DIY philosophy, a strong economy, and numerous colleges, the music scene in Monterrey, Mexico, is diverse and growing exponentially.

Alejandro Escovedo's family has been an integral part of his lifelong musical narrative, so it's not much of a surprise that his first foray into theater memorializes his father.

Plus, Chesney and McGraw fight the law, maverick label Rooster Blues is back in business, Jamaican supergroup Skatalites, and more.
