How To Make Everyone Happy.

You collect the most extensive set of mp3s in your inbox, and then unleash them all at once. It's like a crapshoot. I'll do you a favor and just put up anything that seems even a little bit decent, mkay? Wouldn't want anyone else but myself to do the work here...

>>>FYI - I would like to point out that there is an awesomely amazing charity event going on at Smith's Olde Bar this week thanks to Josh Rifkind called 500 Songs for Kids. I've already mentioned it somewhere along the line, but now that it's going on, you need to take your $7.00 and bring your booty up there one night this week. I'll probably go tomorrow, but will definitely be there Friday, and I hear that some big names will be closing it out on Saturday. Check out the site for more info.

>>>Oh, and I don't know who Captain Burrito is, but hey, I think this tidbit he (I'm guessing it's a he) sent might be something you'll dig...a secret show!

>>>Keep your calendars open for the Virginia Highlands Summerfest because the line-up for this year looks stellar. Thanks to Swirly for sending it to me so I can share with you. I'm sure when the time gets closer, you'll know more, but last year, the festival was on Virginia Avenue right there by Taco Mac, where I tend to spend lots of time. And money.

>>>Annnnd, this is one of the coolest things ever...MTV is recognizing the blossoming rock scene we have here in Atlanta. Watch! I've spoken of Snowden before because they are the poo.

>>Here's a sample from the Nick Drake album that has lots of unreleased stuff on it that fans of him will love to get their hands on.

Nick Drake - "They're Leaving Me Behind"

>>So there's this band from New Zealand called Motocade who sent me a couple of samples from their recently released EP, and I'm putting one up because I like it. The sound much reminds me of something like We Are Scientists, who I dig. This track stuck out to me, and from what I've been told, it's the title track. So, if you like that punky kind of rock sound, then you will probably want to click below.

Motocade - "Into the Fall"

>>I just got a couple of mp3s today of The Mystery Jets that I'm kind of fond of. There's that pronounced British accent thing going on, and that pretty much does it for me. No tour dates for Atlanta, but if you're on the west coast, then you're set. Check their site for more...

The Mystery Jets - "Diamonds in the Dark"
The Mystery Jets - "The Boy Who Ran Away"
