Record Store Day + Food Truck Rally - Saturday 4/20

Record Store Day is fast approaching.  Since there is obviously nothing else going on on April 20th, you have no excuse not to head down to our city's very own wonderful record store, The Record Exchange.  Of course, there will be all sorts of record store day exclusives, but it's also a great time for you to repent for all of the music you've downloaded in the last five years.
Did we mention that the first proper FOOD TRUCK RALLY of the year will be going down across from the RX from 4-8pm as well?  The best food trucks in town will be slinging grub straight from the truck.  As per usual, The C.O.T. will be selling original merchandise inspired by the City of Trees.  Check out our online shop to see what will be available.  A special surprise for all you dudes who hate sleeves.  Hope to see you out there.

Red Hands Black Feet

We've been meaning to share local "intrumental post-rock" band Red Hands Black Feet's recently released album "These Things Are Important," for awhile now and are finally getting around to it.  RHBF describe the album as one that 
"represents the first two and a half years or so of the four of us figuring out how to write together and developing our sound.  It was a process not without growing pains.  We wanted to embrace the dramatic rise and fall of standard post-rock while avoiding a lot of the droning and directionless wankering that can take over a lot of instrumental rock music and alienate many uninitiated listeners, but we also didn't want to make an album that asked nothing of the listener.  In other words, we wanted to make an album that requires some effort to appreciate but that makes the listener want to put forth that effort."

(Video) Treefort, 20 seconds at a time

Thank you very much to local music aficionado, Matt Boam, for sharing his Treefort Music Fest highlight video.  It loosely follows the format of 20 second schnippets from every show he attended.  Not bad for a father of two.  Rad Stuff!
