Rearview: The Week in Review (7/26/08-8/01/08)

Here's a handy one-stop guide to all the great content you might have missed this week while you were busy pondering the political implications of Obama's rejection of the new Ludacris track written to support him...
You want show reviews? We got show reviews. Lots of them. If you like it weird, try this Jandek review, or maybe the "wizard rockers" of Harry and the Potters are more your speed. Maybe you like it heavy? Read what we wrote about Boris or check out our review of the Melvins. Maybe you just want some nice, safe mainstream rock? Well, KTCL's Big Gig fits that bill. Still not sated? Check out the rest.
Speaking of Jandek show, that review sparked some lively discussion in the comments section.

If you're one of those folks that prefers to watch music on the TV instead of in a dingy club, rejoice, because we not only informed you that Rose Hill Drive was appearing on Conan, we even updated it the next day with a link to the clip in case you dozed off in front of the tube waiting for it to come on.
Wondering who moved the most units over at Twist & Shout this week? Wonder no more, we have the list.
For someone who doesn't dance, John Common sure is obsessed with the act of ass-shaking. In this week's Scratch and Dent Sale he muses on dance music and how other genres can capture its purposefulness.
