This Is Happening UPDATE


here at the office everyone's just trying to get a little work done leading up to the big XX Merge festival coming up...well apparently we are all just a little uptight and needed some sweet tunes to lighten our load! so two ladies took it upon themselves to park their Jetta (i know it's a Jetta because there are giant ROCK THE JETTA logos all over it, along with pictures of one of the ladies) outside our office, set up a small PA (not small enough) and serenade the denizens of downtown Durham with some serious sub-Lilith Faire fare. i can't tell if they're advertising the singer lady or the car or the laptop the other woman is holding.

UPDATE ok so of course this was not accidental (that she was on our sidewalk) -- Karla Davis is trying to get signed! and apparently headed for Yep Roc after this. it's funny that people take the time and effort to go on sidewalk promotional tours but don't take 2 minutes to look at a record label's catalog or website before commencing the serenading.

You should head out there and show 'em how it's done right.

But Mac, you're neglecting to mention that this is how we were signed. Only instead of a Jetta it was my 1992 Mazda MPV Wagon, and it was coated with In N Out wrappers and cigarette ash.

Good news. They drove past Yep Roc and couldn't find our building. I saw them when I was outside eating lunch (couldn't miss that Jetta!) So now they are probably lost in "downtown" Haw River...where they will surely perish and be eaten alive by the locals.

Mac, you guys at Merge are such cool hipsters. Sorry she wasn't "indie" enough for you. Guess if she was driving a Prius she would have had a better chance.

I used to work next to the old Time Warner building in midtown Manhattan and it seemed like at least once a week some dudes with guitars would set up on the sidewalk in front of the entrance and play music and hand out promo CDs. By and large they were all pretty awful.
