EDAS Shout-Out in the Chicago Tribune!

It has come to my attention that, thanks to Filligar, #EDAS has gotten a shout out in the Chicago Tribune.  In a piece about Filligar's most vital member, DeeDee (their tour-van), I got an unnamed shoutout as the "music blogger" that keeps DeeDee a'rocking while they drive long distances from gig to gig! You can check out the entire article here (without having to subscribe) but I've pulled the most important quote for your convenience.  
"The stereo, just passable, was fixed just this morning. They have been relying, lately, on a flash drive containing some 6,000 songs passed to them by a music blogger."
What an honor considering I love the Windy City and free uncredited press. Next time we'll get the site name in, but for now, baby steps. I'm getting ready for a big weekend including Filligar's show tonight, and the inaugural Catalpa Festival, featuring an #EDAS allstar lineup of Snoop Dogg, The Black Keys, The Sheepdogs and even a fully Dreadicated Reggae Stage.

In honor of my mere mention, I present a song that will kick off your Funky Friday right. Here's Former US President, George Clinton and his Parliament Funkadelic with Flashlight. You just have to pretend they are saying Flash Drive

Parliament - Flash Light Drive

Filligar Comes to Rock the Gramercy Theatre

Fresh off their Outlaw Roadshow tour with the Counting Crows, Rock and Roll saviors Filligar return to the Big Apple to take a bite out of the famed Gramecy Theatre. Not only are these guys one of my favorite bands, but they are quickly climbing my list of acts I've seen the most in my long concert-going career. I wouldn't keep coming back if they didn't get better every time. Trust me, grab your tickets now and swing by tomorrow for a bill filled with great young bands, capped off by one of the best. Download their latest album for the price of your choice and see the light if you haven't already done so.
