Ear Candy is Reborn, having a (re-)Birthday Show
For some the now certain demise of the P-I has been a forgone conclusion for some time and local freelance rock columnist Travis Hay having seen the writing on the wall has just relaunched his music column on his very own blog at earcandybeat.com. In his final P-I column published yesterday Travis talks about this week’s re-opening of the Crocodile, and how it’s a bit different on the inside than it used to be. A second floor even!
This Saturday Ear Candy is having a bloggy birthday show at the High Dive on Saturday and the lineup is a doosie, with Brent Amaker and the Rodeo, WE Wrote the Book on Connectors, Team Gina and The Fucking Eagles all taking the stage. For the occasion, Travis utilized the WE Wrote the Book on Connectors Songwriting Service (only $18 for a custom song) to write a theme song for his blog. The results are not bad.
As I told Travis in an interview a short while ago, I’m glad that he’s another active and enthusiastic voice out there supporting the local northwest music scene. There’s certainly room for more of those people. That he’s continuing his blog in it’s own space is a good thing.
