Denison Witmer is making his way across country. Thanks to everyone who is coming to see him play. More dates are listed on his website and here at burnttoastvinyl.com. For all of those who have ordered Denison’s first cd, Safe Away, by mail or on-line, they have been repressed and mailed out to everyone. Denison also has these cds at his live shows. Ester Drang is making some waves at college radio, last week as the #15 most added in their first week of adds. Several CMJ reporting stations have been playing their record. Call up your favorite station to request their goldenwest album.
The Trouble with Sweeney are embarking on a short mini-tour. For dates, check their website and those dates listed here.
In Philadelphia news, we’re all hoping for a Philadelphia pennant in the NL East and it’s going down to the wire. There’s rejoicing at the win over the Braves tonight. We’ll see…
