Still Ill and a mix for it.

I lined up 12 tracks for my friend in hospital (seems like I should say "in the hospital"). The little mix is for her to listen to while she recovers. I tried to use really new material, so it's fresh and she won't feel like she's missing out.
The 40 minute Get Well Mix is on z-share here. Over 250 views of the audio and that's with no description. I did twitter it and of course it's on Facebook.

As I write, I've got Sally Seltmann streaming from MySpace. I read about her in a newsletter from the Arts and Crafts label. Her music and voice is uplifting, so give it listen!

Speaking of Arts and Crafts, my favorite artist on that label, Stars, has a new single out. I downloaded "Fixed" from the upcoming album "The Five Ghosts" for free by offering my e-mail address. *can't find the link right now / will add it soon*

That's me at The Casbah in July 2009 waiting to watch Trashcan Sinatras...and the good news is they are coming back to The States! The band is going on tour in June, playing 11 shows. Most shows have recently gone on sale, the others should be on sale shortly:

No San Diego show, I'm sad to say. San Juan Capistrano is 1 hour away. My parents live there, so I may have to make a trip of it.
