- Will Sugarland be the next band that Kings of Leon picks a fight with? Unlikely, but the country group did beat out the Tennessee rockers for the top spot on the Billboard charts. Sugarland's "The Incredible Machine" moved 203,000 copies in its opening week compared to 184,000 for the Followill boys' "Come Around Sundown."

- Because every single drop of nostalgia must be squeezed from the '90s, the next Foo Fighters album will find Dave Grohl teaming with his old Nirvana bandmate Krist Novoselic and "Nevermind" producer Butch Vig. Novoselic will play bass on one song while Vig handles production duties throughout. There is no set release date for the album yet.

- In local concert announcement news, Bon Jovi will visit Verizon Center on Feb. 27, 2011. In slightly more bizarre news, Wu-Tang Clan will visit Falls Church's State Theatre on Dec. 18. No word on if they are planning an all '80s cover set.

- Another local venue is starting a record label. Vienna's Jammin' Java is launching its own imprint with local "front porch pop" band Deep River. The release shows will be Nov. 12 and 13.
