Know a musician? Help NN-SL

NN-SL officially seeking donations of MP3 recordings of original songs from any and all musicians for use as part of a collection to be sold on Second Life and possibly itunes as a fundraiser for Netroots Nation in Second Life. Email submissions to rev.paperboy@gmail.com. We need an MP3 and a brief amount of artist info - a couple of sentences is enough- and we need it ASAP in order to get things put together in time for the inauguration. Not all submissions will necessarily end up in the collection, but the Rev will listen to everything sent in and try to whittle it down to a manageable dozen or so tunes.

Zath's Album Cafe and Steampunk Holiday Skating Party - Sarah McLachlan, Wintersong
 Forget the War on Christmas; DJ Zathras wants a War on Christmas Music--the bad stuff, anyway.  You know, the treacly garbage that drizzles out of the PA at Walmart starting just after Halloween.
  That's what makes Wintersong such a joy--it's impeccable, emotive seasonal music that doesn't beat you over the head every minute with the fact that you're listening to Christmas music.  So take a break from the hustle and bustle of holiday preparations and skate the night away to this delightful album, plus a mix of Zath's holiday favorites from throughout the years!
Free Skates and other steampunk-themed goodies (don't miss Hypatia's latest creation, the amazing, steam-powered Skål's Glögg-O-Matic) will be available at Zath and Hyp's winter wonderland in the sky!

Zath's Album CafeUncle Tupelo, "No Depression"

Before Wilco, before Son Volt, before alt.country, there was Uncle Tupelo.  No Depression, the album that spawned a movement, sparkles with the creative tension of standing with one booted foot firmly in the punk rock of the band's origins, and the other just as firmly in the twangy, roots-driven jangle that Jeff Tweedy and Jay Farrar would pursue with those two later bands after Tupelo's breakup.  Come to the Cafe Wellstone as DJ Zathras spins one of the foundational albums of Insurgent Country.


All Day, beginning at 9am
