Please take a moment to visit my friends and fellow contributors of a new music blog titled Our Last Quarterstance: The Blog Tribunal. Matt, who maintains Still Kisses with Saliva, rounded up a handful of music bloggers to create and contribute to a blog that will focus less on the hottest new band you've never heard of and more on "classic albums, commentaries on pop culture, overlooked albums, overpraised albums, where exactly loud music has gone, histories of record labels, and, yes, the occasional discussion of an exciting new band."
My fellow contributors are:
Alex – A Great Body of Water
Bob – Gimme Tinnitus
Conor – One Part Team Extreme
Digsy – Quick, Before It Melts
Ekko – Berkeley Place
Matt – Still Kisses with Saliva
Samantha – So…Where Is Helsinki?
Our web address is http://theblogtribunal.blogspot.com/
Also I have recently discovered the blogs ultra8201, Both Sides of the Mouth, Instrumental Analysis, and Scenestars. Each of these supply excellent content.
There are some great shows happening in Austin this week. Here's what I'm planning on seeing, and what I'd recommend.
