Kevn Kinney and the Roamin Countrymen, Peter Buck

By the looks of it, Peter Buck seems to be having a hard time transitioning into retirement since his “day job” ended when R.E.M. decided to call it a day in September 2011. Having just released a new album with the supergroup Tired Pony (in addition to planning his second solo record), Buck’s output is as prodigious as ever. The rare solo gig at the 40 Watt will be even more special given the ticket price: $5 for all-you-can-rock. Just don’t expect an impromptu R.E.M. reunion: bassist Mike Mills has said there are “zero plans” for the band to share a stage anytime soon. Drivin’ N Cryin’ frontman Kevn Kinney headlines the show with his other band, The Roamin Countrymen.
