A Local Blog

Someone just emailed me a link to a local Madison site that said this:
I've been communicating with a great band out of Toronto called The Ghost is Dancing. One of their members asked me what the Madison music scene was like. I sent him a rather lengthy response that really got me thinking. Here I sit often struggling to find something original to write about and I live in one of the most vibrant music communities in the country. You know the cartoons where the guy steps on a rake and it up and smacks him in the face? That's how I feel right now. Why am I not writing about Madison bands? So, from here on out I am going to make a greater attempt to profile a new Madison act at least once a week. There is at least 400 of them, so I shouldn't have a problem. To start things off here is just a selection of five songs from an eclectic mix of different Madison genres.
