Today I've heard an evil liveconcert with Black Sabbath from Pittsburgh Civic Arena dated back to september 2. 1978. They have Neil Young concerts, Byrds stuff, Beach Boys, Led Zeppelin from Fillmore East and bunch of other totally vintage-style concerts. The flash-based player is way cool, allowing you to play only tracks, view bandinfo, post to friends etc. Just sign up for free and get in. It's the link of the last week this year, I'd say.

Just check out the song Parentheses below - it's a absolutely gorgeous song set in a supermarket and helps its lovesick protagonist through the store, with a heartbreaking verse: "If something in the deli aisle/ Makes you cry/ You know I'll put my arm around you/ And I'll walk you outside." Better late than never, right?

The equation factors in the artist, how "underground" they are, the social character of the company, and how wealthy the artist is. Interesting! (via snarkmarket)
