The ever-enigmatic David Berman made a couple of announcements via the Drag City message boards this week. First off, he's ending Silver Jews—the group's last show will be Jan. 31 in a cave. (Yes, a real cave. Underground.) Apparently he wants to move into "screenwriting or muckraking."
To the latter end, Berman offered another post in the same thread, outing his father, Richard Berman, as a greedy corporate monster who he's been estranged from for years. It's pretty heavy-duty stuff for a message board.
