Some early Cassadaga data; Minmae, Drakes Hotel tonight…

Category: Blog — @ 6:20 pm April 17, 2007

Well, the sales numbers for Cassadaga — and its chart position — won’t be available until tomorrow. What I can tell you is that the album is currently No. 5 on the iTunes download chart, down from its spot at No. 3 that it held most of last week. iTunes now has a page that reflects top downloads in other countries, here. It’s kind of cool to see what people are downloading in Japan, for instance. Anyway, countries where Cassadaga ranked in the iTunes top-10 for album downloads last week:

Canada — No. 8
Denmark — No. 8
Germany — No. 9
Ireland — No. 7
Netherlands — No. 10
Sweden — No. 8

When you filter it for only alternative albums (here), the result is even more impressive.
Label chief Robb Nansel said sales numbers for Cassadaga at Best Buy and Target were higher than for Wide Awake, which is a good indication that the CD will land in the Billboard top-ten tomorrow. We’ll see.

Tonight at The Waiting Room, it’s Minmae with Drakes Hotel & Honeybee. $7, 9 p.m.
