I’ve been listening to the Nadas for quite a while. At least 12 years of auditory enjoyment. I remember seeing them perform at the OP in Cedar Falls, Iowa while I was a student at the University of Northern Iowa. I’ve seen them perform at venues in Iowa, in Chicago, IL and at a friends wedding in Minnesota. I’ve watched these guys grow up while I myself was maturing. When the inevitable occurs and the Nadas retire/break-up, I’m going to be bummed out. They have been a musical constant in my eclectic musical collection. I wonder if they’ll ever make it out to Oregon for a gig?
In other web-music news, Muxtape, another favorite locale for web music, is currently down. The homepage sadly displays the following message:
“Muxtape will be unavailable for a brief period while we sort out a problem with the RIAA.”
The RIAA sucks. Seriously. Web-based radio stations “pay more for playing a song than traditional or satellite radio.”
