Meridian's doors open for tonight's no-opener show at 8 p.m. The band will tape its first-ever episode of Austin City Limits Friday, stepping in for Erykah Badu, who is still playing the festival.
* L.A. Irish rockers Flogging Molly's show scheduled for Verizon Wireless Theater tomorrow night has been postponed until February.
* Friday's Robert Plant/Allison Krauss show cancelled due to storm damage at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion has been moved to the Zoo Amphitheater in Oklahoma City. Proceeds benefit hurricane relief efforts.
* Austin noisemakers ...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead (above) talk up their almost-complete new album on Pitchfork today. The first album since the band was dropped from Interscope after 2006's So Divided, the as-yet-untitled record will be released on the band's own Richter Scale Records, a subsidiary of Houston's Justice Records. No release date has been announced, but preview EP Festival Thyme is due on Richter Scale October 21, and Trail of Dead plays Warehouse Live November 6. - Chris Gray
