Virb’s yet another social networking site, and it’s a place you can listen to my friend Tom’s (music name Tommy Slax) new album. If you dig it you can buy tracks from the album (The Spaulding Years) here… it’s an interesting site — tracks are about 16 cents a pop, but the more people who buy a track the more the price goes up. If scarcity breeds desire, attention breeds value.
…also, if you sign up for Virb go on and make me a friend over there.
I gotta say, I’m getting near email / password overload. It seems it’s taking me four tries to get into each new site I sign up for … how ’bout some OpenID, guys?
- I remember the first time I trusted a record review.
- The impromptu Avett Brothers haiku ticket contest I launched on craigslist
- Hey, weekend: the Post’s Underground Music Showcase (translate: awesome local bands)
- Okkervil River’s got a new album coming out soon… here’s a link to their first single from it.
