Sweet Static

Yes, another mp3 blog. Trying to share what I like with the world. The music here is for sampling only and are up for a limited time. It's simple really you see. If you like the music then go out and support the artists. Buy a cd/mp3/eight track, make a request on radio, see them live, tell others about it. This way this wonderful medium hopefully won't be stomped on.

Location: Windsor, Ont, Canada

Sweet Static is an mp3 blog that allows me to share the music I love and also to point out other cool things around the internet that catch my attention. It is also a place where I can talk about my radio show by the same name, now on Thursday nights from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm on CJAM 91.5 FM in Windsor, Ontario. Got something I should hear? Email me at sweetstatic @ gmail.com. All comments left here are emailed to my inbox, so you can get a hold of me that way also. You can also follow the show/me on twitter at sweetstaticcjam.

Free Music In Detroit-CityFest

Being right across the river from Detroit is a good thing for a music fan. Most bands hit the city at some point, so you've usually got a chance to see any act you want to catch. Another excellent thing is the huge amount of free festivals in the summer. Over the next couple of days I'm going to go over some of the ones I'm excited about.

First up today is CityFest formerly known as TasteFest, running from July 4-8. It's at New Center in Detroit and offers four stages of music. They usually have some pretty sweet bands and this year is no different. A weird mix of bands from the Afrobeat of Femi Kuti to the comedy of Weird Al to indie favs Yo La Tengo and Spoon.
