The Devil Stole the Beat.

We're not slackers, I swear. Ally and I actually recorded a podcast last week, but my dear partner is having computer problems at the moment, so you'll have to sit tight. I think we got too drunk for this one anyways.

However, here's the deal with this week. I'm so so so psyched about the show coming up at Smith's Olde Bar on Friday that I could mess myself with excitement. I have a feeling that might involve glitter and butterflies or something. It's actually a three day festival type thing being held by The Devil Stole The Beat, and it involves many sponsors, including ASCAP and BMI.

To kick things off, there's a launch party on Wednesday, February 14th at the Loft. I'll probably go since it's Valentine's Day and I just got rid of one of the two dogs I had. In case you're wondering, Roxie's still here. Buy me a drink. I have no money right now. Moving along...

Thursday, February 15th at Smith's Olde Bar, BMI is having their showcase, and a band we've spoken of on here before, The Working Title, will be playing with the Less, Owen Beverly, and Nathan Angelo. I've decided I really want to see this Owen Beverly kid. Click on his name, and you will hear why. If you can't hear, think about all the songwriting greats you know of, and put them in a ball of goodness. And that's what he sounds like. $6.00, I believe. And get there around 8:00ish.

Friday, February 16th is the ASCAP showcase, also at Smith's Olde Bar, and I am so super duper excited about two bands in particular, mainly because I haven't seen them yet, but I'm addicted to the recorded material. Summerbirds in the Cellar, and How I Became the Bomb are throwing my brain into a music feeding frenzy on two completely different levels. Summerbirds have this raw retro-y rock thing going on, and HIBTB is a band with funky dance-like beats and lyrics that have me snickering. They have a song on their EP called "Fat Girls Talkin' 'Bout Cardio." Hellllo. Also playing are Rouletta and Dead Confederate, both from Atlanta. Again, get there at 8:00, shell out $6.00.

That's really all I have for now. Well, that I feel like typing out.

On one other note, if you are with a band, this might be of some interest to you. I have been in touch with this girl who is creating a local music video show for GSTV, and she is throwing a little Battle of the Bands thing at Lenny's on March 5th. Submissions are being taken, and the winner gets a slot on the show with a newly made video. It sounds like it's going to be a great thing for bands to get some exposure they wouldn't normally have, so if you'd like to enter to be in this contest, then shoot an email over to Lucy at Lenny's.
