Today, I am mourning the loss of Indiana in the NCAA finals. It was a better season than any fan could have hoped for at the beginning of the tournament.

For those who remember Octane Blue, an early Burnt Toast Vinyl band, some of their unreleased tracks are now available at:

Also, apparently All American Radio has not died. Tim was at the Denison Witmer/Six Parts Seven show in Lancaster on Friday and said that the band is still working with a new drummer, the latest in a string of attempted drummer replacements. More word on AAR action as soon as it’s available.

Men’s NCAA basketball excitement tonight at 9PM. Go Hoosiers.

I was in Maryland to watch the Indiana/Oklahoma NCAA basketball game. To the delight of the room full of Indiana natives, Indiana beat Oklahoma to make it to the NCAA finals. There was much rejoicing. I’ll be watching on Monday hoping Indiana wins it all.
Today was the official start of the baseball season…indie rockers everywhere are secret (or not-so-secret) baseball fans. It’s true.
Denison will be back in Philadelphia later this week to work on the recording of additional instrumentation and mixing for his Philadelphia Songs album. Hopefully, you got to see Denison with The Six Parts Seven on the tour. The Six Parts Seven are an amazing band, be sure to get their new album out now on Suicide Squeeze, available in the on-line store.
