I am only three and half hours from this. Maybe I should go?

Damn you vegan and your great photos.

Justin at An Aquarium Drunkard has started his own record label with the first release coming from Daniel Hutchins, who incidently was just nominated as one of the Top 100 Singer/Songwriters by Paste Magazine.
Good luck with the records, Justin. If you’re ever interested, you’ve got another Justin here that’d love to get involved and help out in any way possible.

Tell me again why I don’t watch American Idol?
Surprisingly, I actually meant to start including some American Idol content on this blog. It is live music, right? /me cowers behind keyboard in huge Live Music Blog backlash…

It’s SXSW, Baby! offers online calendaring for the SXSW Festival. The anticipation for this monster event is just stunning and I only hope that I make it down there for this in a couple years.


Hope everyone’s having a good weekend. Feel free to share some links or discussions in the comments. I’ll make it an open thread. Did you see a show last night? Anything good going on tonight?

  1. i was supposed to see animal collective last night but it was sold out so we decided not to drive an hour and a half just hoping that maybe someone would scalp us tickets

  3. I haven’t gotten into them yet, I’ve been meaning to, though.

    Bummer to hear you got shut out, and definitely not worth the ride.

  5. Telefon Tel Aviv last night in NYC … it was a dj set so my expectations were low, but it ended up being very fun.

  7. I guess you never know with DJ sets. In fact, I don’t think I would know much other than some of the DJ’s I’ve seen always overstay their welcome…

  9. For a while there seemed to be a habit of NOT advertising the fact that it’s a dj set, and that was the worst. We went to see Squarepusher one evening and all he was doing was spinning records and didn’t play ANY of his own music (which is just like him, such a cheeky rogue). Now promoters seem to own up and are advertising whether or not it’s a dj set, so at least paying customers know what to expect.
