The compact disc has been with us since the early 1980′s, and were originally only used for storage and playback of audio.
Later they evolved to also store data, but they didn’t start to have major mainstream adoption by consumers until the early 1990′s. It was the CD that marked the dawn of the digital age, not Napster or iTunes. While many bloggers have proclaimed it’s death since blogs were created, a new report recently released says it may indeed be imminent. Online music magazine Side-Line has went on record that major labels like Sony, EMI and Universal plan to stop the production of CDs by the end of 2012. The report goes on to state that physical cd’s would only be created for special releases.
Review and Photos by special guest correspondent Jon Kopecky
Every now and then a concert gets announced that creates so much personal anticipation and excitement that I can barely wait until the day of show. Granted I have a slight obsession and dedicated passion to seeing live music, I still enjoy the thrill of getting to experience the live sounds of a talented band for the first time. Such was the case for the latest concert I went to on Thursday November 10, 2011 at Calhoun Street Soups, Salads, and Spirits – featuring the SupPop band Memoryhouse with support from two of Fort Wayne’s finest bands – Wooden Satellites and House of Bread. Set on a Thursday night at one of the Fort Wayne’s hidden gems best known as CS3s, this highly-anticipated show was bound to be an eclectic collection of sounds from a variety of musical styles and genres.

Washington based The Lonely Forest recently got a chance to tour with Seattle’s Minus The Bear. They have also toured with Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, Margot & The Nuclear So and So’s, and of course there’s that infamous connection with Death Cab For Cutie. The 4 piece are from Anacortes, not Aberdeen, but have still been influenced by Nirvana. The first act signed to Chris Walla’s new label, Trans, we caught up with singer John Van Deusen, and guitarist Tony Ruland, right before they were opening for Minus The Bear.
Back in the day, when this place was crawling with forums and chats about random acts of music, we used to poll ourselves. Which album not only set the artist atop of the industry, but stapled them in as musical gods.

Blip Blip Bleep is a Brooklyn-based electro-pop trio. Founded by New York native Sean Han (guitar/synth/vocals/Ableton Live), Brooklyn-based electro-pop outfit Blip Blip Bleep (BBB) has made a name for itself by consistently delivering catchy hooks, intelligent songwriting and for making audiences dance. Over time the group has grown to include Kayce McGehee (synth/vocals) and Jojo Schwarz (drums) who contribute immense talent and intensify all aspects of the project.
BBB’s first EP Wireless and their second, Alarm Clock, Snooze Bar, Get Up, garnished them a thumbs up from the likes of BillBoard Magazine, IndieFeed, PopMatters, The Deli NYC, and NME.com’s video blog. Although BBB performs live in and around NYC, most frequently at the acclaimed Mercury Lounge, the band has a national tour history performing at clubs and colleges alike. The trio has shared the stage with such acts as My Dear Disco, Hedley, Still Life Still, Bear Hands, Boy Crisis, Walter Meego, and Woodhands; with a major highlight playing at the Jones Beach Amphitheater sidestage for the Honda Civic Tour with Paramore and Tegan & Sara.
Since the release of their first LP, Like Track Stars in 2010, BBB has gained attention on an even wider scale. Vanity Fair licensed one of their tracks for the magazine’s behind the scenes video for their 2011 Hollywood Issue; the producers of the indie film/documentary Dressedalso selected several BBB tunes for its soundtrack. Additionally, they have had numerous songs featured on shows like ABC’s Castle, NBC’s First Look, The Today Show, and Friends With Benefits, Bravo’s NYC Prep, Nickelodeon’s The Troop, as well as various popular internet programs.

Our FFF coverage continues. Thanks to Twitter, we knew that television star Blake Anderson would be attending the fest in Austin. We originally thought he would only be present Sunday to see Slayer until we spotted him walking around Friday. Comedy Central‘s hit show Workalcoholics‘ has been a trendsetter, and we are big fans. I knew that a couple members of Odd Future Wolfgang had guest appearances in one episode. And obviously he was at this event, so had a hunch that the rising star was also a music lover. We got to chat about how the show got started, their previous jobs, his wide palette of musical tastes, and of course we had to find out his smoking preference. This was one of the few, maybe only, interviews that Uncle Blazer gave during the weekend.
