Since yesterday’s Slowdown item went online they’ve enhanced their website to include a brief history of the project, a photo gallery, and an FAQ which includes answers to such sterling questions as ‘What does Slowdown mean?’ (it’s a reference to the band Slowdown Virginia) and ‘Do you have shows every night?’ (No, typically only 2 or 3 nights a week) and most curiously, ‘Who does all your in-house booking?’ The answer is Val Nelson. So where does One Percent Productions fit in? I assume Val will be booking local shows while One Percent will book touring national acts like Built to Spill (which they, indeed, booked). Right?
And speaking of websites, yesterday I stumbled across Omahype.com, a blog that includes live reviews, news and brief show previews, not to mention a sweet photo of O’Leaver’s bar sign. Yet another source for local indie music coverage. Check it out.
Tomorrow on Lazy-i, look for this week’s column, a chat with David Matysiak of Coyote Bones, where he talks about all the local talent that showed up on his band’s exceptional new disc.
