LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

A ustin's music scene is undoubtably one of the most vibrant in the country. This week in Weekly Wire, the Chronicle's Andy Langer contructs a very deep profile of Austin's all-star band, Storyville. The band has had a long fascinating history and it's all here. Following that is a review of Storyville's new album, "Dog Years." Believe us, after the profile--the review is kind of a shocker...

This week is seriously packed with reviews. Get the critics' takes on the new CDs from Brian Wilson, Lucinda Williams, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, the farewell CD from Bikini Kill, and more. We've got profiles on Rufus Wainwright, Guided By Voices, R. Stevie Moore, and Fury III.

If that wasn't enough, Boston Phoenix's Jan Garelick examines the new 3 CD set of Charles Mingus' Columbia sessions and offers a glimpse at the iconclastic genius. Check out Hard Guy.
