  • He’s also having a free instore performance at Fingerprints in Long Beach the weekend of the Vault show. I’ll post a date on my blog once I get it confirmed.

  • wow, i haven’t heard from pete yorn in a minute, i saw this guy back in 2001 at the soiled dove….

  • I love Yorn’s first album. Second one was eh (“Burrito” might possibly be one of the worst songs ever written by someone with talent). He was great live opening for REM back in 2003. What are the odds this new album will return to his debut’s brilliance?

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
