As we mentioned at some point last month, we are going to be speaking on a panel at Boston's NEMO Music Festival this coming weekend. There are numerous panels Saturday, but ours, of course, will be the best. It is called "Music Blogs: Fanzines of the 21st Century" and it is being moderated by DoneWaiting.com's Robert Duffy, who was somehow duped into coming all the way from Ohio to hang out onstage with yours truly. Ahh, we jest. Several notable Boston bloggers will also join us Saturday at 1:45PM, including the ever-amicable Mr. Almanac, as well as the human manifestations of Aurgasm, ExitFare and False45th. We think it is going to be a pretty high time, and we hope that some of you will come watch, ask questions, critique our outfits and perhaps join us for drinks afterwards.
While they will only gain you entrance to music events and not the conference, we have a pair of festival wristbands to give away. Said wristbands get you into venues holding NEMO events Thursday through Saturday nights. We're not one to tell anybody what to do, but we will say that we're making darn sure to check out Yo La Tengo Thursday and Ladytron and The Long Winters Saturday. We're not 100% certain how you obtain these wristbands once you win them from us, but we've sent an email inquiring after these important facts (we're supposed to go pick up our credentials beginning at 5PM Thursday at the Boston Center For The Arts in the South End, which is the home base for the conference, and we expect that is where a winner might pick up a pair of wristbands). OK, here's the giveaway: the first person to email us at our address linked at right with the correct answer to the following EASY question gets the pair wristbands: which big deal Hollywood actress is featured in the video for The Lemonheads' "It's About Time"? [The wild coincidence is we wrote this item last night, but just two hours ago our hit log shows that someone just made their way to :: clicky clicky :: via a web search about this woman's role in the video].
