Got a question you've been burning to ask Neil Young? Like, perhaps, what made him want to write "Cortez the Killer," or what he was thinking when he made Trans? (Which really isn't as bad as it's cracked up to be?)

Well polish those inquiries down to 140-character length, Young fans, because tomorrow (Oct. 24) is your day. The great Young himself will take to his brand-new Twitter account (@neilyoung/ only 13 Tweets so far!) to answer your questions starting at noon PST.

All you have to do is Tweet a question with the hashtag #AskNeil, and wait for a response. Well, that's not all you have to do, because let's be serious: There are going to be hella people hurling questions at the man tomorrow, and putting a smart Neil Young inquiry into 140 characters, is including a hashtag, is gonna take some work.

But anyway: Young's appearance on the @TwitterMusic handle is part of a new Twitter series (#LegendsonTwitter!) where famous musicians answer questions in real time. Given that access to Young is infrequent and privileged (more privileged than us, anyway), we're excited to see how these exchanges turn out.

Also tomorrow, the new album from Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Psychedelic Pill, will be streaming in its entirety, a week before its Oct. 30 release date. Expect more of the distortion-soaked jams we heard earlier this year on Americana, only on original songs, not American classics. You can hear the new record at from tomorrow until next Tuesday.

Now, then: Time to figure out what to ask the man tomorrow!

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
