Pop culture obsessives writing for the pop culture obsessed.

Yes, that was sarcasm you smelled in the headline. The 13 millionth Johnny Cash tribute album is being assembled by indie label Anchorless Records, but this one looks a bit more worthwhile: It's a benefit for the Syrentha Savio Endowment for lower-income women with breast cancer, and the contributing artists announced so far include Chuck Ragan, formerly of Hot Water Music; Russ Rankin formerly of Good Riddance and currently of Only Crime; Jon Snodgrass and Chad Price, formerly of Drag The River; and Jason Shevchuk, formerly of Kid Dynamite and None More Black. The as-yet-untitled disc is due sometime in 2008.

Interesting-to-three-of-you factoid learned a couple weeks before "researching" this Newswire post: Shevchuk's new band LaGrecia, although based in Brooklyn, played its debut show in Denver recently. It was pretty rad.
