Unidentified metal duo plays on street.
There’s a wee bit in there about the "Mobility, Ubiquity and the Monetizing of Music" panel — the one with Sandy Pearlman that I told you about the other day. I still plan on providing a closer look at his theories, but it’ll require me going through my notes. I actually need to call him schedule a formal interview. Until either or those things happen, you can check out my reply to this Idolator thread for an overview of sorts.
On Friday night, I got to roam 6th Street with Tim Quirk of Rhapsody, Neda Ulaby of NPR and Ann Powers of Village Voice, New York Times and now, L.A. Times. It was our Policy Director’s birthday, so we were feeling pretty celebratory. I was thrilled to rock out with such fun and intelligent humans. Totally worth the hangover.
I missed Enslaved by like five minutes. My co-worker Jean played with The Sadies (among others), which I also missed. Oh, well. I did get to see a couple of songs from She & Him, M. Ward‘s new partnership with the exquisite Zooey Deschanel. Zooey’s no Jenny Lewis, but she’s easy on the eyes — even in the harsh hipster glare of pre-dawn South-By.
That’s all for now.
