McFlies - acoustic 80s in Toronto on Friday

Apologies for a little blatant self-promotion... I’ve Twittered and Pownced and Facebooked and emailed about this, but I realized I haven’t blogged about it. So here we go!

The McFlies, the all-80s all acoustic band of which I’m very proud to be a part, is playing at Lula Lounge in Toronto (1585 Dundas West south side of Dundas, just west of Dovercourt) this Friday! Two sets of some of your fave eighties classics. We have an AMAZING time with this band, so I hope you’ll come check it out.

Apple Notifies Partners: DRM-free Music and DRM-free Music Videos Soon

Well it's seems like Apple IS going to be offering the option to provide DRM-free music for indie providers. Excellent! I wonder if it will be at the EMI non-DRM rate of $1.29? Regardless it's a good move on Apple's part.

hypebot: Does Steve Jobs Really Want DRM Free Music?

This post from the always excellent hypebot blog nicely sums up my feelings on the subject:

hypebot: Does Steve Jobs Really Want DRM Free Music?

Uncle Seth DiscRevolt cardBack from PodCamp NYC where I took delivery of FREE cards from a new service called DiscRevolt.com. In this episode I talk about this service, and how I hope it represents the beginning of more creative and interesting ways to sell music downloads rather than only at a (too high!) fixed price per song.

If you do decide to sign-up for DiscRevolt, please mention my band Uncle Seth in the "How Did You Hear About Us" field.
