"I Tried to Put Myself on the Album As Little As Possible"

Ever hear of the South Park Music Festival? Well if you haven't, you're missin out. Last year was quite the experience if I may say so myself. As it turns out, the creators of the SPMF have teamed up with another festival, called The Monolith Music Fest., which was recently announced, and who else but myself is super-freeking-stoked about it. Well, I think it has some potential, but seeming how no bands as of yet have been officially announced as attending, I can't be too excited. But I sometimes have problems with things like that.

You know who else has problems but we love her not only despite them, but for them? Nellie McKay.

My top 4 Banterers:
1) Dan Deacon
2) Colin Meloy
3) John Darnielle
4) Nellie McKay

This woman has a lot to say, and dear Lhoard does she have the weirdest way of saying most of it. I love a good banterer because, if you're listening to a live set (as opposed to actually being there) it really draws you in, and, if you are there, it makes the connection between you and the artist so much more intense.

Because this set has so many tracks to it, i've decided to .rar that bizzle for those of you who might want the whole set, but don't want to d/l the entire set song by song
