Todd P's venue Trans Pecos is definitely do it yourself, but now it's also fully legit, having finally gotten its liquor license last week:

Our liquor license specifically includes all areas of our building, including our cafe and basement, and our huge, gorgeous patio, so you can take your drink outside -plus- we'll be hosting outdoor happenings on the patio this summer!

This marks the final achievement of Trans-Pecos' 2-year project to create a fully-licensed, "legal"/"legit," all ages, and independent music venue focused on intellectual/"experimental" music genres, that also serves as a daytime community-use facility opening our doors at no charge to like-minded community service charities seeking classroom, workshop, and event space.

We're super proud of how far we've come, rising from the ashes of 9-15 Wyckoff's big shutdown 3 1/2 years ago, and a little over a year since the closing of 285 KENT.

Congrats, Trans Pecos. You can head there tonight (5/5) and have a legal beverage while watching JOBS, Montreal band Notta Comet, Combman, and Advertising. You can check out Trans-Pecos' upcoming calendar here.


Some news from the people over at Soundcloud today...

Big news to share today: I am proud to announce the launch of On SoundCloud, our new creator partner program. On SoundCloud lays the foundation for creators to make money from their work on the platform.

As artists ourselves, Eric and I started SoundCloud with a simple vision. We wanted to develop tools for creators, help them reach fans all over the world, and shape a way we could pay the creators who fuel the growth of SoundCloud.

We're laying this foundation by initially inviting a small group of creators to become Premier partners in the On SoundCloud program, enabling them to make money on the platform. Over time we will roll this out across the creator community.

To make this possible, we're introducing advertising from select brand partners to SoundCloud. When someone sees or hears an ad, they're supporting an artist. We will include ads gradually and bring on more advertisers as we grow On SoundCloud.

Everybody at SoundCloud is really excited about bringing this creator program to you. We often hear people say, 'I'm on SoundCloud'. Now we're happy to be able to offer even more for the millions of creators who have made it the best place in the world to share and discover music & audio.

Alex Ljung
Founder and CEO of SoundCloud

An article on The NY Times also points out, "Eventually, it plans to introduce a paid subscription that will let listeners skip those ads, as they can with Spotify and other licensed services."

Best Coast just Tweeted the above picture with the message: "Election Day in the studio". Coincidentally, I had just seen them minutes earlier, on Election Day, in my living room...

Not saying that Disney even realizes it, or knows who the band Anamanaguchi is, especially Mickey Mouse who is too busy at meetings and filming TV shows to know what's going on with random app commercials the company posts to YouTube, but it's a blatant rip-off nonetheless, as you can hear below...
