Dash Rip Rock "Paint The Town Red"

“It’s been a long cold lonely winter.” (Here Comes The Sun – George Harrison) and DAMN if I am not ready to embrace the spring and all it means. Today we traipsed around in shirtsleeves for the first time this season. Winter has been a grueling marathon of greying days and grizzled faces shrouded in sub-freezing temperatures. Temperate weather is finally here! It means clunky boots left behind, and stripping off layers of clothing. Feels so free, Feels so fine. I remember being that carefree, but damn, I have to ask, whatever happened to fun anyway? When you could go out, loosen the tie, shake the tail, stir up a spell, grab yourself a libation and PLAY.

Now whenever I am feeling like that’s what I need, I look for a cathartic music experience, and since Dash Rip Rock comes from the "melt your face" school of music - you know he can deliver. Dash is in the midst of the “new cycle,’ raising money by crowd sourcing to get the new album Wrongheaded, done and delivered. They are at 79% of goal at Pledge Music, and they are offering some creative options that will engage you in the band beyond what most folks will ever see, let alone have access to. Me, I want the red boots… Take a look at the offerings here.

This Friday night, Dash Rip Rock is set to play Midtown Live, 251  30th Street in NYC. It has been a hard winter, but let us revel in the rite-of-passage into spring. Remember those nights we were out to get whatever life had to offer? No holds barred, no pursuit too outlandish...That is what we are celebrating when Dash Rip Rock is in the house. Be prepared to pogo.

So here is Dash Rip Rock "Paint the Town Red" from the stage at Threadgill’s in Austin Texas during our Music Fog Marathon at SXSW11. It’s just a taste. And we are doing it old school in standard definition - recorded to tape. I can't wait to get some for real!

Ange Boxall "A Heart That Loves Like Mine"

Music Fog hit a new milestone this week, 30 million views on our YouTube channel. Yowsa, you guys! Thanks for watching, thanks for sharing, and thanks to all the artists, managers, and music biz operatives that stepped up along the way to make it happen. The amazing thing about the Music Fog movement is it has been totally viral. This is virtually friends telling friends, and so on.

What an exciting time it was a week and a half ago, as I got to broadcast live from SXSW© on If you used to listen to XCountry, on XM Satellite Radio, and have been looking for something to fill that audio void since it went dark in 2009, I have been building the Sun Radio music library since 2010. Stream it live anywhere in the world, listen on the broadcast frequencies in and around Austin, and of course you can download the app for your smart phone for free from your App Store. All the sets we broadcast will be archived on and let me tell you there were too many magic moments to even begin to pick just a couple of favorites. Everyone BROUGHT it! Thanks to Maudie's Triangle and El Mercado on S. 1st in ATX for making us so welcome. This weeklong immersion actually just might be my favorite way to experience music, sequential days packed with brilliant sets from incredible artists. All told, there were nearly 50 artists broadcast last week, talk about a music fog!

We did a Music Fog Marathon in Nashville in 2011, which was jam packed with musical goodness. Ange Boxall was on the lineup that year, all the way from Tasmania. She is back there now, playing gigs and a blues festival a couple of weekends ago, and generally having a blast. It is so great to be able to take a gander on FaceBook to catch up. Ange just posted a photo recently with another Music Fog alum, Steve Poltz. From the Music Fog Marathon 2011 in Nashville, during AmericanaFest, here is "A Heart That Loves Like Mine."
