I’m about to head out of town for the day…going to see The Weakerthans tonight in NC. It’s probably been a good four years since I’ve seen the band so I’m rather stoked about it.
Check out Quote Unquote Records. A very cool label idea especially in this musical climate. I suggest checking out We Versus The Shark (who have already been featured here before). The band is in the process of covering one song per month in 2008. April’s cover is “See No Evil” by Television. You can listen below.
Congrats to Stuff White People Like…dudes got a 300K advance on a book deal for Random House. Simply amazing.
Also, I literally feel bad for not mentioning this more. IF YOU MAKE IT has become such an amazing site. David is doing an awesome job over there. Do yourself a favor and go watch some great videos of DIY artists finally getting a deserving spotlight.
