Silver Jews call it quits?
David Berman of Silver Jews
Over on the Drag City message board for Silver Jews, it appears that David Berman is bringing the band to an end after their January 31 show. As a fan of the man and his music, I'm a bit stunned by the news. Berman says that he wants to move on to other endeavors rather than make a career of recording and touring, and that's his prerogative. I wish him the best, and hope he keeps us informed as he tries new things. I'd be dishonest, though, to say I'm not bummed out.

The final Silver Jews show will be January 31 at Blueground Undergrass in Tennessee, and is already sold out. Hat tip to the Onion AV Club for the news.
