I was talking about the crowd to Austin (our metal director, on air every Sunday 10pm-12am) between songs at the Between the Buried and Me show last night (which was awesome, by the way). He was saying how pumped he was to see so many younger—“ADD generation”—kids out and paying attention to such good music even though a couple of the songs bordered on 20 minutes long. I said true but that these songs were really schizophrenic compared to something like Desolation Row. But that was cherry picking on my part. Although prog didn’t really get going until a few years afterHighway 61 Revisited, it’s not quite fair to say that BTBAM is capitalizing on some sort of super-fast-paced-sound-bite-saturated-immediate-information-internet-generation. But it is tempting.
Students are back at SUNY Albany for Spring semester which means we’ve got a new Schedule and a bunch of cool new programs for you to check out every week. The whole schedule is available onwww.wcdbfm.com (where you can also stream the radio live, in case your at work or in Kentucky or something).
Note: We gave away a bunch of free tickets to that BTBAM show and of course we’re not stopping there. Be sure to tune into CDB for information about upcoming shows and maybe even a spot on the guest-list.
