Rearview: The Week In Review (5/31/08 - 6/6/08)

Here's a wrap up of all the exciting stuff you missed this week while you were goggling in amazement at Metallica's insistence that a blogger take down his preview of their upcoming album, thus demonstrating the group's continued lack of anything resembling a clue when it come to these here internets...

We reviewed concerts from George Clinton, Jamie Lidell, R.E.M., Panic at the Disco, Return to Forever and more.

Speaking of that R.E.M show, our commenters had plenty to say about it.

We reviewed the Flobots appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and helpfully included a link to a clip for anyone who missed it.

We reviewed a bunch of albums, some via the forty-five-second method and some via more traditional means (i.e. listening to the whole thing).

We posted some extended Q&A sessions with Bettye LaVette, Hayes Carll and Darude.

We tipped you to the ethereal sounds of Sarah Marcogliese.

The Rap-Up brought word of Snoop Dogg turning into a cartoon, plus the latest on local artist D.O.the Fabulous Drifter's evolving sound and more.

The Mile High Makeout fell in love -- with retro techno!

We looked back at U2 at Red Rocks on the 25th anniversary of the infamous legendary show.

We revealed the seriously kick-ass (even if we do say so ourselves...) line up of the Westword Music Showcase. -- Cory Casciato
