Wow, I almost forgot how to do this. Feels like the whole world passed me by while I was gone. I will try to begin daily posts again from this day on. Thanks to all my fellow bloggers for the support while I was gone. I will try to get back up to speed on this post and put up all of the stuff I had been meaning to put up for a while and was not able to so here goes....
I have been fortunate enough to get in contact with a great Austin website, Do512.com. It is a great source for show listings in every genre of music. And has suggestions from other Austin bloggers on which shows to go to. I will have mine set up there soon.
My new favorite band right now is The Presets, I saw them when they opened for The Rapture last week and have been listening to them ever since, check them out.
AustinSound.net has just been the most useful website. Great interviews and a lot of good content. They make me feel worthless, ha ha...
