Midnight Sun's iTunes playlist?

ipodHey gang, what do you all think of me starting up a Midnight Sun iTunes download list? I'm not too familiar with iTunes (I don't even have an iPod) but I believe this is possible.

And I might be wrong, but I feel like you all don't really want to hunt down good local music. You'd rather me just put up a link that says, hey check this stuff out and buy it if you want.

The way I understand it, an iTunes list of some sort might be the best way to do it. But this could take a while. My computer died, my cell phone is half-dead (I have to take all my calls on speaker phone).

Absolutely. Sam Sessa, List Master General.

I'm def in. Would this be a local-music-only playlist, or like the theme playlist for Midnight Sunners everywhere?

Duff, I think it would be local music only for starters, and then maybe branching out into other stuff.

We shall see.

I just made a seven hour play list on my ipod for work. (I can't take anymore Journey or Rihanna) I included some local bands. I think this is a great idea. I've actually learned alot of new music from reading this blog. Wye Oak being my new fave. I don't think I have to much to contribute but I look forward to seeing how it pans out.

Nice. I need to get into some more local artists.

Suggestion: don't forget the good boys in Even So...

Go see the Payola Reserve live.

If you want local music, check out the Beatbots A/V Club...latest entry is the Baltimore Afrobeat Society show at Floristree this past weekend:

"Suggestion: don't forget the good boys in Even So"

Are they still a band? Last I heard, Ira moved to Chicago and, I think, the drummer is joining local thugbilly miscreants The Dirty Marmaduke Flute Squad (though I may be thinking of the wrong guy).

Thanks for the suggestions, gang. I'll take as many as I can get.

The way I understand it, Midnight Sun or Baltimore Unsigned is going to make an iTunes mix. Everybody should be able to access the mix, and if you want, buy the music.

We'll start with an indie rock mix. I'll let you know when it goes up.


Yeah Ira is still in Chicago, but last I spoke to him, I think he's headed back here in a couple/few months. And yeah, Sam is playing electronic drums for the Flute Squad. But I think once Ira gets back, they might at least try and play a show or two.

Allan, what are you talking about? I don't play drums ...

Haha, I think it was that evil twin you keep talking about.

no, he plays the organ, i play the drums

Great idea. Al Shipley put out an Itunes hip hop mix for Baltimore about a year ago. It'll be cool to hear new local lists and of all different genres. Support local music!!
