- The blogosphere is endlessly coughing up music lists — some bad, some good. Here’s a great one: a list of the best remixes released between 1952 and 1997 compiled by esteemed music journos Michaelangelo Matos, Hua Hsu, Andy Battaglia and Philip Sherburne. Up top, Matos asks the question: “Who invented the remix?” His answer: “Lots of people — and people are still reinventing it all the time.”

- How good is banjo player Sammy Shelor? The Lonesome River Band leader won this year’s Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Banjo and Bluegrass Music. (What, you didn’t know that the funnyman-slash-bluegrass-enthusiast gave an annual prize for banjo-playing excellence?) Shelor plays the Kennedy Center Millenium Stage tonight, opening for performing with Linda Lay and Springfield Exit. The concert is free.
