From Philadelphia's Electric Factory (1999), Portland, Maine's State Theatre (2000), NYC's Theatre at Madison Square Garden (2001), Sin City's Cox Pavillion (2003) and the Exhibition Center @ Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wisconsin (2004) - Trick or Treat journeys through the years to re-visit some of the band's most classic Incidents from Halloweens past.

Gov't Mule - By A Thread CD - A wildly creative and fearsomely talented rock band lauded by Rolling Stone for successfully bringing the classic power-trio sound of Cream and the Jimi Hendrix Experience into the 21st Century has completed work on By A Thread - their first studio album in 3 years.
Bassnectar - Cozza Frenzy CD - Bassnectar's own label Amorphous Music teams up with Child's Play Records to unleash Cozza Frenzy, an amalgamation of sound that combines dubstep, electro, hip hop, and all styles of dirty digital bass-heavy music and smashes it all into a collision of wobbling, intense basslines, and hypnotic hide-and-seek adventures. A work 3 years in the making, this rich and eclectic collection of 15 songs features collaborations with artists such as Fever Ray, Zumbi of Zion I, Mr. Projectile, and Capital J. $14.98
Del McCoury Band - Family Circle CD - The band's first non-gospel studio album since 2005's Grammy winning "The Company We Keep" shows that somehow, Del McCoury keeps getting better with age. This release features the same top notch picking and singing you expect, but also shows the band continues to grow and evolve with some song selections and arrangements that may surprise you. There are some covers--as the band has come to be known for over the years--with tunes formerly recorded by Slim Whitman, Mark Knopfler, and Solomon Burke, but probably most surprising is Jerry Lee Lewis' "Break Up" on which the band uses their acoustic instruments to mimic The Killer's piano sounds. There are also some more traditional numbers and a gospel quartet that shows the McCourys as a band don't get enough credit for their vocal ability. All the songs are backed by the slickest picking in the land, and the combination makes for what some are already saying is the best recording the Del McCoury Band has ever made. $14.98
Sam Bush- Circles Around Me CD - Sam Bush's eighth solo album. 14-song set includes appearances by Del McCoury, Edgar Meyer, Jerry Douglas and, thanks to the discovery of an old demo, New Grass Revival co-founder Courtney Johnson (posthumously).
