MAHA fills in two more main stage slots

* Monday night’s Lucinda Williams concert was a luminous slow-burn from the alternative country/Americana trailblazer.

Back and Forth

The Foo Fighters have played to massive crowds, won Grammys, received platinum albums and have even turned down an opportunity to have a song featured on “Glee.” So why record their latest album, Wasting Light, in a garage? “When you’ve been a band for this long, you start to form certain habits and you need to fall out of those habits,” bassist Nate Mendel said, calling from Seattle....
