As is our tradition (we’ve done it twice), this Labor Day weekend we released a few tracks on a pay-what-you-want (including free) EP, for all of con-goers looking for new music, students heading back to school, and people who attribute no real significance to this time of year, but still like free music.
I will start in fall of 2006. My very first college boyfriend is big into music. I am big into “music,” but by “music,” I mean “They Might Be Giants.” And that’s pretty much it. He introduces me to a lot of bands, and takes me to a number of concerts. The first concert – The Dresden Dolls. Before that concert, he lends me all of their music, and I listen to it. Constantly. By the time we see the show, I know all of their songs. They put on a fantastic show. Cary & I stand in front and see it all. We are moved.
