A Few Cool Links

Here are some cool links, starting with David Byrne's incredibly detailed and long posting for just ONE DAY on his 2012 tour with Annie Clark (aka St. Vincent.) it's also bizarrely similar to the Varsity Strings post about the San Diego Fair, including shots of Deep Fried Everything:

One Day In Dallas

The Varsity Strings posting:

A Fairly Nice Day In San Diego

Next, here is the defunct Max & Max Music blog, made just before Curly Max began working 16 hour days at Bumpnote Screenprinting:

Max and Max Music

And - here is the website for The Stone Foxes, they use the same New York PR firm as Davd Byrne, and they sub-contract out everything else:

The Stone Foxes

The Foxes' site is a bit weird, it's slow to load and is all on one page, with the music on sale at the bottom... lots of scrolling up and down involved...
