A few indie bands, such as Postal Service, Fruit Bats, Shins, among others, are making use of the popularity of BitTorrent to distribute some free tracks, videos, and promotional material to their fans. Dust off your BitTorrent client and get downloading.
the Shins have finally announced a January 23rd release date for their next full length Wincing the Night Away. I know it’s just setting myself up for disappointment, but I’m really looking forward to the album.
If you find yourself with nothing to do this weekend and you’re near New York City, you may want to check out the Del Close Marathon at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theater. $20 gets you all you can eat improv, all weekend long.
