That's right folks, two swell bands from western NY are hooking up with two local groups near and dear to us all for one big rock show in the 'burbs. Why should you go? Pick a reason - I dare you:

Normal Reasons
1.) This show will rock - seriously. Great line-up from top to bottom.
2.) Door prizes!
3.) You want to start the holiday weekend early.
4.) This is a perfect opportunity to get more excercise when you drink. Midgard doesn't allow alcohol, but there's a bar about 15 feet away. Actually, it could be sorta like senior crawl all over again, but with more music and less variety in the bars you visit.

Scenester Reasons
1.) You want more early weeknight shows like this one.
2.) You missed The Stepford Five's cd release show and you want to make it up to them.
3.) You like/think there should be more alternative venues.
4.) You want more bills with both good columbus and non-columbus bands and more opportunites for columbus artists to get out of town.
5.) You'd like to experience/say goodbye to midgard before it's gone forever.

edit: corrected wording

Mp3 bump!

League
Bookburner
Relic
Outcome Provided
Failing Physics

For these, you need to right-click and select "Save Target As..." That is, if you're using windows; I don't know what the equivalent is on an Apple. If this doesn't work, go to http://www.purevolume.com/league. You'll probably have to sign in or create an account with purevolume (which, by the way, hosts a lot of damn fine artists).


Earwig
numerous songs

No downloads, but here are 13 tunes for your streaming pleasure.


The Stepford Five
Recognition for the Lonely Ones
Are You Dreaming

Tomorrow Is Forever
Everything We Need
These guys are also hosted on purevolume. If the link doesn't work, go to http://www.purevolume.com/tomorrowisforever

==============================================

I know a lot of you have probably already heard/seen Earwig and The Stepford Five (if you haven't, go listen NOW and/or come out to the show on Thursday). And I hope I'm wrong, but I figure not many among the donewaiting crowd will make it out to Midgard for the show. But if you can spare a few minutes, please download and listen to League's "Bookburner." I think these guys are very, very good, which is why I'm putting so much effort into helping them out.

If you do listen, any comments would be appreciated but, of course, aren't required. Thanks!

The League songs are really good -- remind me of Jimmy Eat World. <b>Prediction:</b> these guys will sell a bunch of CDs at this show (if they've got CDs for sale).

Thanks for listening, Chip! Yes, they've got cd's - their first full length, actually.

I've heard the Jimmy Eat World comparison before, and definitely agree with you. That said, I'd like to think League actually pushes the envelope a bit more w/respect to time, rhythm, & dynamic shifts as well the complexity of their song structure. But then again, I'm a fan, so I'm admittedly biased.

Video bump!

So I haven't said much about Tomorrow Is Forever. Like League, they're from Western NY. One of the unique things about these guys, though, is they've got a mean streak of multimedia dork in 'em. So, in addition to creating songs, they're working on video to accompany their music. They've made a demo of the footage for "The End" public. Just go here.

The video itself is pretty neat (lots of cool lighting and after-effects), but more than that, I think it's really cool that this band is expressing it's creativity in more than one medium. They're still pretty darn new, so I can't wait to see what's in store!

p.s. Rumor has it that they'll be bringing video-playing equipment to the show to use with their set. Should be verrrry interesting...

Duffy, fire up the Donewaiting Shuttle and to provide rides for the campus-dwellers who think Midgard is too far away. My wife is going out of town for 5 days and I'm staying at home with my youngest daughter. If we didn't have so much stuff to do before she leaves, I'd definitely venture out to Midgard (never been there before but have always wanted to check out a show there).

Swisschard, did you do any promotions at any high schools? I remember back in the day, when Tripping Daisy had just gotten signed to Island, I got a press kit that included an article written by a Dallas high school student for her high school paper. How cool would that be? I would never have dreamed of being Cameron Crowe when I was in high school.

Well, there aren't any student-newspaper spots on the show, but yeah - some flyers were hung up at a couple high schools, and a friend of mine has also been getting word around at the school where he teaches. Also, Keith said he gave a bunch of handbills to a couple kids who help him out to pass around in their schools.

Anyway, it's on TONIGHT! I hope to see some of you out there!

I just wanted to say thanks to those who ventured out to the 'burbs, and a BIG thank you to Earwig and The Stepford Five for rocking the joint like they were playing to 500. All who came were treated to one helluva sweaty rock show. Until next time...
