Working. Listening to Music. Etc.
WMNF is an exception to the rule. And yes, I am well aware of WMNF, I listen to it too. Have you read the paper? CL covers WMNF events and artists touted by the station pretty regularly (the feature in this week's paper, due out on Thursday, is about Tropical Heatwave), as well as indie music well beyond what 'MNF pushes! Point is, WMNF makes it into the paper all the time. This story is more looking at the idea of a corporate radio station finally making a really big change, what it means to the landscape of broadcast radio and what sort of impact it could have on/what it might mean to broadcast radio in the future.
It's not a story, it's a column. It was meant to be a more personal take on Umphrey's, because seeing them live has always been a very personal experience, and I wrote it this way because it felt right, and why would I write a normal 'feature' for any Umphrey's story, anyway? Doesn't do the band justice. Sorry you weren't a fan and read a little too much into my illness, but thanks for reading nonetheless! I am still not a fan of Steve Kimock, saw him before that particular show and seen him since then, and no matter how talented he is, he is not, and will never be, an exciting performer.
"Enough with the retweets, reposts, remakes, retreads, cover songs, tribute bands, sequels, zombie references, teenage vampires, cupcake bakeries, T-shirt companies, iPhone/Apple/Mac fetishes, ripoff ’80s synth bands and the fucking YOLOs..." Cheers to that!
I bet if I looked, not very hard, I would find a fun. dubstep remix.
There are other pics, but not pics that will be published in CL ;-)
Correction noted. Thanks jj.
I am proactive - but if an event isn't posted on the avenues I check weekly, I don't get info about it, and it's not on a venue or promoter's website, there's only so much I can do. One person here. But thanks for looking out.
