Blackbirds on the rise
I went to friend-of-a-friend Dan Kosub's independent CD release party more or less on impulse this weekend. Fortunately, this panned out way better than most of my usual completely uninformed decisions. (Screw you, Pepsi Blue!) Dan is a talented dude, and I am really enjoying his new stuff. Maybe you will, too! You can check out a few tracks on his MySpace page, and if you are so inspired, order a copy of the full shebang by joining his mailing list.
Also in attendance was Eric Hogg, another great local artist of intimidating skill. Watching these guys in action reminds me of why my own band would never have taken off. I mean, had it existed.
Posters and prints are still on sale. For those that are curious, I believe I am now about halfway through my Conscience Cat Limited Print stock. Knowing is half the battle!
