>>>Today is my Friday. I have the day off tomorrow, therefore, I will be heading out to Smith’s Olde Bar tonight to see Rantings of Eva, who just happen to have their new recorded material, Lowering the Curtain on Memphis, available on iTunes now. And, um, you need to have it. Trust me. If you don’t like it, then I give you permission to smack me. Here’s a little more info: A little more info.
>>>Elsewhere, Atlanta’s own Snowden is reaching great heights, once again. They have a video for "Like Bullets" available here. It’s actually kind of creepy. I don’t know why, but it is. It’s very cool, though. I actually hated this song the first couple times I heard it, but now I get super excited when it crosses my ears. It’s pretty brilliant. They’re about to go on tour AGAIN. Atlanta’s not on the list, but hey, here’s a free download of "Anti Anti" for you, in case you happen to be the only person left in the world who doesn’t have it.
Snowden - Anti Anti
>>>I also thought I would take this blog time we have together to mention this band that sent me their CD that I listened to and thought, "Yes! Another band in Atlanta that doesn’t blow!" You know, it’s rare that I get a CD and think that… The band I speak of is Long Knives, and their album is one of those that’s very mellowed out. I had it in the car and just kind of let my mind wander while I was listening to it, but it was in a good way. It made me feel a little hopeful. There’s an incorporation of violin and pedal steel, but this is NOT bluegrass, and it’s NOT alt-country. It’s nothing like either one of those. It’s unique. So, you know, go on over to the link above and see what’s up with them.
>>>Make some plans for next Saturday, February 10th. Make them to include seeing the Futurists at the Masquerade. Why? Oh, because they’re awesome, and they have this pretty flyer.
>>>I haven’t listened to these yet, because I’ve been listening to other stuff, but once again, I’ll share, because I heart sharing free music. Oh, and because this band, The Makes Nice, has a bunny rabbit in their press photos, and I love bunny rabbits. Just look at the little guy!

Go out! Do something. I'll see you there...
