* How about a bunch of music song files that you can load down to your computer-drive from teh internets? We Own This Town has posted a new podcast (Vol. 24), containing songs by How I Became the Bomb, Duraluxe, The Comfies, Quiet Entertainer and--wait for it!--more.
* Live on the Green is officially official, and is a free outdoor downtown Thursday night concert series starting Sept. 3. Confirmed artists so far: Citizen Cope, Space Capone, Ricky Young and Here Come the Mummies.
