WEB 2.0 for ARTISTS

May 1, 2009

Now here’s a great post from the kids over at SAMBA.  One of them writes today about an Icelandic musician and how he’s using his community to hold him accountable to generate music.

The blog is also about how he’s using Web 2.0 in a great way to utilize his community.  It seems to me like a perfect example of where social media is taking artistic endeavours.  Hold on for the ride!

WHAT ON EARTH!? U2-3D?

February 15, 2008

A movie opens today that should have all U2 fans who didn’t get to see the Vertigo Tour really excited.  It is U2-3D and it’s now playing at a theater near you!

Can you believe it?  A 3D movie of a live concert.  I wonder which city?  Perhaps several.  I was at the Vancouver concert in 2005.  It really was amazing.  In fact, I think I might just consider going to the 3D movie just to re-live the experience.  I guess that’s what they’re banking on.  Weird.


HE’S ON THE MOVE!

Griffin House.

Is it a name?  A location?  Or just a really great excuse to get out of your apartment?


GRIFFIN HOUSE

When we went to see OtR the other night, we were pleasantly surprised by a phenomenal opener – Griffin House.  He expertly controlled the crowd all by his lonesome with a guitar, executed a fabulous cover of Johnny Cash, and wowed us all with his musical and performance prowess.  Check him out!

I’ve added his blog to our blogroll on the right.


I DON’T WANT TO WASTE YOUR TIME WITH MUSIC YOU DON’T NEED

…speaking of music, PLEASE CLICK HERE.

Our FAVOURITE band, Over the Rhine, just came out with a new ALL-bum (as Ryan likes to say) called “The Trumpet Child” and it’s fabulous.  Simply fabulous.  Read those reviews!

In fact, we saw them tonight in concert at The Knitting Factory, in Hollywood.  They were so scrumptiously good that I cried.  Literally, tears of appreciation and joy were flowing down my cheeks.  Tears!

Much love, OtR.

P.S. They have their own blend too!
