As many of you have rightly noticed over the last couple of months, OW contributor Jason Ferguson has been blogging up a blitzkrieg of local music news at BEATdown. Chock full of helpful info, his posts helped demonstrate what a vital and varied local scene we truly have.
Alas, it proved to be a concept that begged to expand in ways that our cyber-infrastructure (which I believe is built on a mixture of Prodigy dial-up, baby's tears and the Death Star's core generator) could handle. So Jason has started up a startup called Orlando Music News, which will be a lot like what he's been doing here, only shinier, louder and, well, not here.Why, already today he's got news on the closing of Vinyl Fever in Tampa and their going-out show with Matt Hires, Will Quinlan and Guiltmaker this Saturday at noon!
I urge you to bookmark it tout de suite. I also urge you to keep at least one eye on BEATdown. We're changing, we're learning ... we're multiplying. Be patient.
Charge the generator!!
