Today is a really exciting day and not just because it’s Friday and the sun is finally shining. I’m bringing Mastodon into the Comcast Center to talk about their new album, Crack the Skye! I know that interviewing a band on tour isn’t that big a deal, but it’s a major step forward for comcast.net/music as I try to work more original music content into my workflow. The idea of having regular interview and performance featurettes is one I hope bands, labels, and fans will appreciate. Of course, the possibility of my face being somewhere in the video on demand music folder is exciting as well.
I know. I used the word “workflow.” If you’re professionally involved in any aspect of the music business, especially in editorial, you already know how difficult it is to do this sort of thing when people are clamoring to find out whether or not Madonna will be allowed to adopt in Malawi. Take my word for it: it’s hard.
Having said that, the Thermals are coming in next week to play a few songs for us before their show at Johnny Brenda’s next Tuesday night. I’m really looking forward to that, too! It’s an exciting time. Now the key is just building momentum. Wish me luck!
