EZarchive appears to be acting up, so now is as good a time as any to tie up a few loose ends, eh?
- First off, tonight is the debut of iSpin. Anyone in Arizona reading this should head down to the Paper Heart and check it out. We’ll be up after the nice boys in Secret Life of Painters play their rock. Open iPod DJ sets; how can you resist? Our great sponsor, iLounge, has hooked us up something serious with iTunes gifts cards for $50, $25 and $15 for the best three sets. Be there!
- Have you visited Audio for Drinking? Our friend Josh over there is a kind soul. Go say hi.
- You guys all know about what’s going on with WOXY, right? The online radio station is moving to a listener-supported model and needs your help because of music royalty and licensing fees. Read more. The WOXY Lounge Acts podcast is one of my favorites, and the station is a great source for some of my posts. Go support.
How did I forget this? I saw The Hold Steady (above) on Saturday on a whim after work. Another great show from Stateside Presents. I was really impressed with Craig Finn’s stage presence because he’s not the most physically imposing figure. I’m still not sure I get the Bruce Springsteen comparisons in the music, but maybe I’m not paying close enough attention. Anyway, here’s an mp3 from the group’s Web site, a great track off Separation Sunday, available at eMusic:
