MidPoint, again

It's just about six weeks until the MidPoint Music Festival in Cincinnati and I'm already getting excited. This year they'll have 300 bands and the conference is going to be at the Contemporary Arts Center. Sweet. Jeff signed up to volunteer today so I'm going to bug everyone else in the greater Cincinnati area to do so as well. If you love music, you won't be disappointed.

The one thing that is slightly disappointing, however, is the state of Main Street itself. Clubs have been closing all year. Some have reopened but the area isn't nearly as popular as it used to be. I have to admit that I don't get down there as often as I should. I went to Crush on Saturday, though, and I had a great time. A lot of the clubs are really fun and I'd hate to see the place disappear.

Favorite Song of the Week:
"I'm In The Mood Again" by Elvis Costello - I know we're back to Elvis but I think I just discovered this song the other day. It's the last track on the syrupy and sentimental album, North, and I'm usually in a coma by the time I get to the end. My iPod rescued me by playing this tune on random. It has a great old time feeling. I couldn't believe it was something Elvis wrote. It makes me want to move to New York and fall in love "away from the mad-hatters who live in Manhattan" just like those chicks on Hooking Up.

Wow, 300 bands. Looks like they cover a large spread of genres too.

I've never been to MidPoint, and this year I plan to change that ... WITH A VENGEANCE!

Oh yeah, and speaking of Crush - I call dibs on everyone's Sept. 2. That's the next Bring the Music night; they moved it to Friday.
