When Indie Was Still Indie

Posted By on Fri, Sep 29, 2006 at 3:54 PM

There's a pretty interesting link on Coolfer's page to a story on about what indie really means anymore. It's certainly nothing new—the notion that once indie or "alternative" hit the mainstream, it ceased to be counterculture. What I like is that somebody in the article says "I know it when I see it," as a defense against defining the concept of indie in today's terms, which echoes the old pornography debate by Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart. Is that how elusive indie has become?

Your Momma's on Crack Rock

It's pretty quiet on the local scene today, so I'll just throw this music video out and see what happens.

Friday is Your Last Chance to Dance Dance

Posted By on Wed, Sep 27, 2006 at 2:22 PM


I think Haruch commented on this on another thread, but I just wanted to remind peeps that this Friday, Sept. 29 is probably the LAST Left Can Dance party at Ombi Bar. I know, I know, a lot of people aren't "into" dancing, but it was nice having a cheap cover and kickin' tunes every Friday to offset a week of rock shows. Plus, kids got decked out and added some much-needed edge to the fashion of this otherwise uber-casual town. Yes, that's a "fashion-related" comment.

From Left Can Dance:

Best Band Ever

The pop culture blog Best Week Ever (of VH1 fame) directed readers to dowload songs from The Features today, including "D-Con (Radio One)." Weird!

Which three songs would you suggest to a newcomer?

Nemesisboy took the latest Movement Nashville press release and made it into an epic recruitment video. It's awesome. Enjoy.

Calling all Ranch Hands

Posted By on Tue, Sep 26, 2006 at 10:56 AM

Tonight, Joel J. Dahl and The Ranch-Hand Band will make their live debut at The Exit In. For those of you who don't know, Joel is the frontman of De Novo Dahl. This band is his "country-rock" side project, described as having a 70s-80s country sound. Hopefully that means they lean more toward Alabama than John Conlee. Anyways, the 10 piece band will go on around 9 p.m. and will be competing head to head with various season premieres on network T.V.
