Happy Birthday To RFSL

Not sure if you noticed or not, but last Saturday the forwarding url from "radiofreesilverlake.com" went down for several hours -- an incident which marked both the site's second birthday and my apparent inability to pay GoDaddy's renewal bill in a timely and responsible manner.

So, phwooot! [Noisemaker sound.] It's been two years now since the site began... The first few articles were a post about how damn good Foreign Born is and an interview with Sea Wolf's Alex Church. Last year, we held a b-day party for the site at Let's Independent! with The Deadly Syndrome, The Happy Hollows, and The Lights From Here, which was pretty much one of my favorite shows ever, but we skipped having one this year due to lack of planning and, well, lack of planning again.

If you come out to the sure-to-be-fantastic (and free for 21+) show tonight at The Echo with Death To Anders, Thailand, and The Karabal Nightlife, be sure to clink glasses with us about it. Pardon my brief nostalgic indulgence, but it's been a really fun time writing about all the great music in this neighborhood these last few years...

And by the way, I'd meant to write a LA Bands Worth Seeing At SXSW post, but You Set The Scene and Passion Of The Weiss went ahead and wrote two that are likely much better than what I would've come up with. (Click on their names for links to their respective articles.)
