Last night with Roxy Roca was a blast!
I don’t think I say enough how proud I am of my first band, The Bare Feat. It’s been such a pleasure to watch and help them grow and there are only bigger and better things to come. Including our first EP release at Stubb’s Austin on Friday, Feb. 20th! Don’t forget to snag a ticket! (here)
Thom Yorke is at it again. Once again, he has surprised us all (and surpassed U2) in creativity of album release; and we actually want to download it! Always at the cutting edge, or just the edge, of album releases – Radiohead’s Rainbows was released quite quietly for a chosen donation price. Pitchfork had all statements to the press from Thom Yorke as to why he’s chosen to release this way, saying he did it “As an experiment…” along with a slew of other valid reasons.
This begs the question for recent and future album releases – What’s the way to go, free choice download or forced?
For those not blessed enough to attend ACL fest for any reason, have no fear! With ACL’s new partner, Red Bull, fans can tune into the fest right from home. What’s the trade off? It’s only weekend two. Meaning, it’s not all the same artist’s playing weekend one ACL – but for free viewing, I think we can deal. ACL has posted all devices it’s accessible to on their blog post here. Scheduling comes out Oct. 6th.
So, the only question is, does this completely disregard the whole point of attending a festival, or is perfect for those die hard fans who can’t attend?
