Weakened Wrap-up #3-Low Art Bloggeratti

Pictured: dudes from The Slide Machine’s feet

In case you didn’t know, the overwhelming response to Weakened Wrap-up #2 was so huge that it actually brought down donewaiting.com last Thursday night. NO SHIT. This week I went to my first drag show with my big little brother, went to see Mindless Self Indulgence with my brother from another mother and saw The Slide Machine and a Weezer cover band. DUFFY I HOPE YOU BOUGHT MORE BANDWIDTH! Continue reading

Comfest 2008 Recaps

Comfest 2008 is over. Discussion going on in our message board.

Pictured above is Hugs and Kisses (dressed as Scooby Doo characters), who put on an amazing set. Backed by The Slide Machine, I love the new recorded/live performing hybrid that they’re doing. Hopefully they’ll keep it up.

Manup Music Is Dead. Long Live Nice Life

I don’t think it’s the world’s biggest secret that local Columbus record label Manup Music, co-owned by David Lynch and Carabar Ron, has come to an end. After releasing several excellent albums by bands such as Church of the Red Museum, The Lindsay, and Rosehips, the label is no more.

I spoke to Ron yesterday and he told me he’s launching a new label, “Nice Life.” The first release will be by The Slide Machine. The release show is Friday, and will also serve as Ron’s birthday party. More details about the show here. After that, there is the Church of the Red Museum seven inch later this month.

Ron said while he might put a few Columbus albums out at first, the plan is to release bands from all over the country, and not make the label locals only. There’s no website or Myspace page for the label yet, which seems to fall in line with how Ron does things.

Here’s two songs from The Slide Machine. I’m not sure if they’re going to be on this new seven inch or not, but it definitely gives you a good taste as to what they’re all about.
