Do Not Shake It

Do Not Shake It, originally uploaded by Chambo25.

Seriously, just don't. They mean it so much that they wrote it in two colors!

This kind of signage might be my favorite kind.

Here I am, blogging the night away, and I thought I would use this foolishly late post to talk about two things: Music and more music.

A few months back my good friend Liz (whose art I saw Tuesday... and was blown away! I had seen it before, but WOW!) referred me to the music blog Gorilla VS Bear... which is just a happy little repository of musical randomness. I've started paying more attention to them lately and really appreciating how often they supply links to mp3s from interesting new acts. Well, they've done it again!

They recently pointed out that if you check out the website for SXSW (South by Southwest, an incredible annual indie music festival) you can find links to mp3s from many of the acts in this year's lineup.

This wonderful resource has provided some happy new songs from bands I didn't know such as:"

"Fools," a track by the Dodos

"Lucini" by Camp Lo

and the wonderful "Skipping Stones" by mom (great band name there, kids!)

Fun happy new sounds for the middle of the night!
