Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.

- Five-time Academy Award winning film composer John Barry died Sunday at the age of 77. He is best known for his work on movies in the James Bond series, as well as "Born Free," "Out of Africa" and "Dances With Wolves."

- Thursday's standout songwriters in the round concert at the Birchmere featuring Rosanne Cash, Josh Ritter, Kristen Hersh and John Wesley Harding has been canceled due to illness experienced by Cash.

- Quick hits: Somebody hacked Wale's Twitter account just to diss Kid Cudi. Did "Ren and Stimpy" turn down a song offered by Kurt Cobain? Indie troubadour Will Oldham interviews R. Kelly. Of course.
