Saying Lil Wayne sounded horrible is like pointing out that shit smells bad.

New TL&Rx! From the release:

Inspired by the events surrounding the police action on civil protests at the recent Republican National Convention, Ted Leo & The Pharmacists channeled their own corresponding anger and frustration into a more creative message – that of potent song. The band quickly wrote a new track in direct response and, along with another new song and two equally relevant cover tunes, recorded four raw emotional interpretations of the current political climate. The intent of the recordings is to raise awareness and funds for specially selected organizations Minneapolis Food Not Bombs and Democracy Now! to help out those arrested during the protests.

For the next two weeks, the four-song EP will be sold exclusively as a digital bundle at the Touch & Go/Quarterstick webstore for $4. 100% of the proceeds will be split evenly between Minneapolis Food Not Bombs and Democracy Now! organizations, and greater donation quantities will be available for those who wish to contribute more. Take your own stand; support the music supporting the cause.

"Laura Marling & Johnny Flynn @ Bowery Ballroom"

Out of curiosity, is that a co-headlining show or does Johnny Flynn perform with Laura Marling?

"Ron Sexsmith is playing Bowery Ballroom on Tuesday."

Also tomorrow: Kasey Chambers & Shane Nicholson with Justin Townes Earle opening.

Co-headlining I think, but probably some performing together too.

Is Kristofferson off the wagon again? Will Babs drop by to help him back on?

Kris Kristofferson was amazing! He led the gang in Me & Bobby McGee. He also sang Sunday Morning Coming Down. I got the chills.

Everyone was amazing. Norah Jones' song written with Hank Williams lyrics was divine.

Glad to hear Kristofferson is well and kicking. He's such a talented performer. Sounds like it was a good show!

People want ownership. No streaming, no rental. P2P is about neither. IM transfer is about neither. CD burning is about neither. In an era where you can e-mail a track, which label employees do every day, why would anybody want to rent?
