Or maybe gonna be? If so, you might want to check out Dallas Unsigned‘s new showcase series. These are going to be evenings of music by some of the area’s top up-and-coming talents, each show to be hosted by a guest artist. First show will be on August 10, 7:30 pm, at The Loft, and will be hosted by, yes, obviously, Jason! And Michael will be one of the new talents being featured. So if you are in or around Dallas then, stop on by!
And if, like me, you are not going to be anywhere near there, the Dallas Unsigned folks are working on getting a good live feed up, yay! When we hear details on that, you can be sure we’ll pass them on to you.
Forty artists, producers and directors are supporting an online auction in aid of LA-based cancer research organisation City Of Hope, which reaches its climax on eBay this Thursday. From Justin Bieber to Linkin Park, Florence Welch to Oliver Stone, Taylor Swift to Yoko Ono, all genres are covered in this all-star auction, which is being run by a new American music website set up to champion and support not-for-profits, PlayForLife.fm. The auction, which offers numerous opportunities to meet participating artists, plus signed guitars and behind-the-scenes experiences, has been backed by an on-air and online advertising campaign across all of Clear Channel Radio’s stations around the US for the last three months.
ETA: And for your viewing and listening pleasure–and for yet more reason to jump–more bootleg has been added, these from OliveBranchMedia! (For those not in the know, OliveBranchMedia is sixtimemom’s DH. Thanks for the awesome videos!)
And ALSO, for recaps and chatter about the show, visit the Tour Dates for 2011 thread in our forum. (Yes, there’s a forum.) (Yes, that’s an in-joke.)
ETAA: Celebrate Freedom has put up a whole lot of photos on their Facebook page. Click the clicky and take a look! (Thanks for finding this, Jasonized!)
We are getting more bootleg from Maine from our own Musiclova, yay! To hear it, scroll down or go here.
I’ll keep putting up whatever she brings us, so check back periodically.
(Besides, it makes me happy to see the “Read” count go up.)
Castrocopia is run entirely by a couple of misfits. Although McLovin, Liz Lemon, and REReader are in the back pocket of the Castros, it should not be inferred that this site is sanctioned by the Castros. Tolerated, yes. Loved, who wouldn't? Our words are our own and we stick by them.
