The new (and free!) RiverRocks/Insound Digital Mix Tape, has just been released, and it features tracks by the six bands slated to perform at the 12th Annual RiverRocks free music series this summer in New York City. The three-date series begins this Thursday, July 8, on Pier 54 in Hudson River Park with the infectious indie folk/alt country band Phosphorescent and the "authentically vintage" sounding L.A.-based Dawes.

Beastly Bits #49

Today's bits (and subsequent posts) are slightly differerent than normal (read = quick and to the point). I'm working a half day today (oh hello, Good Friday observance at the day job), so I gotta do something to get out the most info possible in a shortened set of time.

There's no complaints on my end for the early out today...here's to hoping you'll have none either. Also, it's going to be nearly 70 degrees in NYC today. Grin and win!
