Mike Guzzo and the fine folks at CRUMBS (that’s the Capital Region Unofficial Musicians and Bands Site, for you uninitiated) are taking yet another step forward.
Apparently, it just wasn’t enough to just run the area’s most comprehensive local music website. And blog about the local scene for the Times Union. And produce the weekly hour-long radio show “CRUMBS Cafe” on WEXT-FM. And host the monthly free CRUMBS Nite Out concert series and panel discussion at The Linda.
Nope, CRUMBS needed to do more, so now they’re releasing a compilation album featuring a decidedly eclectic mix of some of the area’s finest bands.
“Live from CRUMBS Cafe, Volume 1” is officially being released on Tuesday, July 21, and there will be three different ways that you can get your hands on a copy or two:
For $4, you can order the CD online and have it mailed to you.
For $3, you can purchase the CD in person at various CRUMBS events.
Or you can simply go to the CRUMBS website and download the digital album for free.
So what will you get? A dozen bands are represented and each one offers one song recorded especially for “CRUMBS Cafe.”
