A few years back, R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck and bassist Mike Mills formed the Baseball Project, a band that was a way to “musical tribute” to our national pastime. The group also includes Steve Wynn of the Dream Syndicate and Steve Wynn & the Miracle 3 and drummer Linda Pitmon.

The sideproject has flourished; it’s released three proper albums as well as a live EP and a 45 single.

The Rock Hall has just announced that the band will hold down a residency at the Rock Hall during All-Star Week.

Performances take place from noon to 2 p.m. on Sunday, July 7, on the Klipsch Audio Stage and from 1 to 1:45 p.m. on Monday, July 8, and from 3 to 3:45 p.m. on Tuesday, July 9, on the Rock Hall's plaza.
