It’s that time again… all my gear is packed, and I am ready to sweat it out amidst the multitude of totally wrecked and sunburned at the Farm this year. I’ll be sending in tweets, pics, and PERHAPS a post or two from the fest, so keep tabs for updates. As a final link of love, I’ll leave you with the 20 song mixtape of ‘Roo artists from Spin Magazine that you can snag for the price of an email address. It’ll loop through about four times while you are waiting in your car to get in… so, grab it. Otherwise, you’ll be stuck listening to that dirty ass Phish set from ’93 that your stoner friend wants to subject you to.
Have fun. Be safe. STAY HYDRATED. Keep an eye out for me… I’ll be the guy with the shorts, hat, and sunglasses.
It’s time to restart the computer again, so that means it is time to clean off the desktop. Here’s what I have laying around here that you might be interested in.
JEFF The Brotherhood
Continuing their ascensionthrough popular music culture, Nashville Bogus Bros performed on Fallon last week. Here’s the vid of that one (complete with a dude eating a sandwich on the stage). Onward and upward, fellas.
Speaking of onward and upward, Nashville’s Country-Punksters Those Darlin’s have released a new video for “Screws Get Loose” that premiered on My Old Kentucky Blog last week. You can download the track for free here. The video featuring a dude (is that drummer Linwood Regensburg?) running through Nashville is below.

Roddy played at 12th and Porter in Nashville on Saturday, so I hope you made it out there to see it. And, you will have other chances to see Nashville’s Kingston Springs playing around town. Make sure you check them out.
