Rock and Roll

My girlfriend and I went to The Troubadour last night to catch a guy named Marc Copely. He was opening for a group called Sense Field, and opening for him was a group called Crashcart. (Crashcart was actually pretty cool.) The Troubadour’s been around since 1957; an excellent little club. I’m pretty sure The Doors […]

Song of the Moment

Time for a little poll. Every now and then I upload a mystery song to my Song of the Moment blog. Does anyone ever download it? Should I bother to keep doing that? I never get any feedback, and I’m wondering if it’s worth it. So here’s your chance to make an impact on the […]

Greatest Music

I tried to resist but I just couldn’t. I first saw links to Rolling Stone.com‘s 50 Coolest Records and 50 UnCoolest Records a few days ago. I visited and started looking at the Cool list. The site is designed intentionally (apparently) to force you to look at the albums one at a time; there’s no […]

New Music Now

I’m really much more interested in this for its possible application elsewhere, but I just found this niftiest of little buttons from Emergent Music. Trés hep. Click the “read more …” link to see it in action. link via The Shifted Librarian

Barry Manilow

I drove over the hill and down into West Hollywood yesterday for an interview. At some point during my trip I topped 10,000 miles on my truck. After the interview I met my girlfriend at the Olive Garden and then we booked to the Kodak Theater. Our friends, Michael and Deanna, got us tickets to […]

Burn Baby Burn

I finally finished making my Burn Baby Burn Weblogger CD Exchange mixes (previously mentioned here). I’m late. They were supposed to be in the mail on the 15th. I’ve already received CDs from three other participants: unusuallysuspect.com, cultofdarian.com, and Sophia H. I am really digging the one from unusuallysuspect.com. It’s ultra-mellow. And Sophia stuck Springsteen’s […]

I’m finding more good links through The Shifted Librarian than I can imagine. This is a consistently excellent blog which covers a wide range of intriguing topics. In the past few days there has been some well-written commentary (and linkage) on the state of the radio/music industry in the new, digital era. Here are three […]
