Well, look what popped up when I did an iTunes google search: iTunes iSbogus . Seems there’s an alternative to alternative (corporate) rock. ;)
For those of you in the San Diego area, be sure to check out “Velvet Smog”:http://www.velvetsmog.com/, our own Mike Roufa’s jazz trio. They’re playing this Sunday (6/26) and next (7/3) at Hennessey’s Tavern in the Gaslamp. (Details are on the “Global Spin calendar”:http://evdb.com/calendars/1237.)
If you can’t make it to one of the gigs, be sure to download a song or two from their Web site and have a listen.
Boing Boing just “reminded me of a song”:http://www.boingboing.net/2005/01/25/wiki_wiki_wiki.html I used to love growing up. (John, do you remember this one?) The “lyrics”:http://www.weddingvendors.com/music/lyrics/song-937.html are just beautiful. Not only do they contain gems like “I learned to rock like “dolomite”:http://mineral.galleries.com/minerals/carbonat/dolomite/dolomite.htm,” but there’s even a duel between our DJ hero and Superman, apparently moonlighting as a DJ of Steel.
Ah, good times. Has anyone seen Mergatroid?
