Today, the regular Friday post about what’s in GO! Magazine’s music section doubles as a motherlode of free, downloadable music, thanks to some generous bands. Let’s get right to it, shall we?
-Elliot is a group of five local guys who play sweeping, positive rock music, and they’ve provided Frequency readers with a song for download that you can’t get anywhere else (except, of course, by buying their album “Rocketships”):
-My plan was to interview fast-rising African guitarist Vieux Farka Toure for a story this week, but conflicting schedules got in the way. Instead, you’ll have to settle for a track from “Fondo,” his acclaimed new album:
Download Vieux Farka Toure, “Fafa”
-Colorado bluegrass combo Head for the Hills will be busy Sunday, playing an outdoor show in the afternoon and an indoor show in the evening. Check out a couple of their songs right here:
Download Head for the Hills, “Hornet’s Nest”
Download Head for the Hills, “Harvest Moon”
-The Summit Saloon & Stage is gettin’ funky tonight with The Pimps of Joytime, and gettin’ rootsy on Thursday with Taarka. I have a Joytime song for you, but I’m running into some technical issues, so you’ll just have to visit the band’s MySpace and listen to “Bonita” there.
Not happening this week: The Itals at the Domino Room. There is a blurb in GO! about this show, but the show was canceled after the section went to press.
