This October BANDING TOGETHER – A BENEFIT WEBATHON FOR THE SPONDYLITIS ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA will returns to BlowUpRadio.com. Over 50 bands are already signed up to perform live during the webathon as we try to raise money to a cause near and dear to me (my wife suffers from ankylosing spondylitis). If you are a musician and want to be involved, e-mail me. We would love to have even more bands involved!

We’ll have more info as we get closer to October.

ABOUT SPONDYLITIS (from http://www.spondylitis.org)
Spondylitis (pronounced spon-d-lie-tiss) is the name given to a group of chronic or long lasting diseases. These diseases are forms of inflammatory arthritis that primarily affect the spine, although other joints and organs can become involved. Spondylitis, unlike many other rheumatic (arthritic) conditions, affects young adults and commonly begins before the age of 35. Prominent researchers have stated that AS affects at least 1 in every 200 adults (approximately 0.5%) making it as common as rheumatoid arthritis.
Although there is currently no known cure, there is much you can do to educate yourself regarding Spondylitis and its treatments. There have been significant advancements in medical treatments during recent years and there are treatment options for those afflicted that can reduce the pain and symptoms of Spondylitis.


Lazlo’s Corner

Juggling a lot of things this week so I don’t have time for in depth reviews, but here’s a few albums worthy of much more praise than I have time to properly give it

THE DROWNING MEN – “ALL OF THE UNKNOWN” ---- It comes as no surprise to me this band is currently touring with River City Extension, and signed to Flogging Molly’s label, “borstal beat”. All three bands have some similarities. Excellent songwriting, lots of energy, and songs that are both memorable and meaningful.

THE EXTRAS, INC. – “THE LONG WAY” --- Six songs in 20 minutes just breeze by and leave you wanting more. One of the catchiest albums I have heard so far this year. I challenge you not to get the hooks from these gems stuck in your head. A perfect hybrid of punk and upbeat folk. They are giving their album away for “pay what you want”. Don’t be cheap, or we’ll never get the full length album we deserve to hear from this NJ band.

ELEVATOR ART – “TENT CITY” --- I don’t know where the band’s name came from, but they are not typical art rock. Their music is very accessible and infectious. Often it really rocks with a White Stripesy sort of blues riff, but they really sound nothing like that. Fuck it. it is hard to easily define them, except to say, I like it! Stream the album here:

And I leave you this week with a live video from SKIPPING GIRL VINEGAR. Their new EP, “CHASE THE SUN”, is so much fun, as is their video for the title track.
You can download the song here:
