The truth is we thought about actually posting the lengthy email exchange—the pixelated hoops and hurdles—it took to set this feature up. It was that protracted and convoluted that it became art unto itself—a marvel at generating content before the content.
So, it will be that much more of an event as The Caribbean, Twins of a Gazelle, and Bluebrain's Ryan Holladay converge for a free-for all at Velvet Lounge this Friday night. You'll be there? Right - I thought so.
In the free for all spirit, we asked Ryan to choose a few tracks and blindly bounce them off The Caribbean's Michael Kentoff, Twins of a Gazelle's Dave Mann, and myself and let a four-way G-Mail chat ensue. (We were going to try to guess the tracks as well - but ah, that fell apart.)
Despite the emails to coordinate this lil round table perhaps being a bit more compelling, our gee-let's-chat is posted below for your scrolling insanity and by way of inducing you out this Friday night for what's certain to be a great evening of music.
We're sweetening the pot too—we've got a pair of tickets for one winner who responds to any of the myriad of topics we stumbled over this past Easter Sunday which was oddly the one day we were able to pull this off.
Leave your comment—with email contact info!— and we'll notify the winner by noon on Friday, 4/9.
And uh, we're off:
rholladay: Ha, Jon.
michael: Miracle Legion. Lots of non-rock, too.
