Call It California-DC Synergy

Chrisafer from blah, blah black sheep pointed out that two of our friends are linked to today's Post front-pager about indie bands jumping on the "brand wagon." Sure it's old news that independent musicians no longer see going commercial as "selling out." Still, I can always appreciate a story that connects Blowoff impressario Bob Mould to The O.C., one of the projects our buddy Paul in LA promotes. Besides, why should anyone complain if better music comes to mass marketing, especially if good people profit from it? Hopefully Chris and I can offer congrats in person, as the Bob-and-Rich show makes a long-awaited return to the 9:30 Club basement bar this Saturday night.
