The B3nson Recording Company – who are taking over an entire stage at LarkFest on Saturday – have just released a compilation of songs from their artist roster, free for the downloading. If you’re not familiar with the B3nson folks, here’s your chance: 17 songs, including Scientific Maps, Matthew Loiacono (on loan from Collar City Records), We Are Jeneric, Sgt. Dunbar & the Hobo Banned and more.

Tomorrow is the official release of Super 400‘s new CD, “Sweet Fist,” but we still have a free mp3 download of their hot new single “Flashlight” available. Get it while you can.

Free download of the entire acclaimed Jeebus show at Savannah’s from Friday, August 28.

Jill Hughes is slated to release her new CD, “For the First Time,” with two swinging CD release parties at the Van Dyke this Saturday, September 19. Be sure to check back later this week, when will make a free mp3 download available, and we’ll be hosting a contest as well, giving away a free autographed copy of the CD.


Be Here Now: Jeebus @ Savannah’s, 8/28/09

OK, who the bejesus is Jeebus?

Well, maybe you remember a crazy little Nippertown band named the Hanslick Rebellion? Sure, you do.

Anyway, three members of Hanslick Rebellion – vocalist-keyboardist Jed Davis, bassist Mike Keaney and guitarist Alex Dubovoy – are now based in Brooklyn and they’ve teamed up with a couple of other musicians to form the “throbbing punk-metal” band Jeebus, who are making their Nippertown debut at Savannah’s in Albany on Friday, August 28.

If the Hanslick Rebellion connection isn’t enough to get you out of the house and into the club, let me tell you who the “new” guys in the band are – guitar shred-master Reeves Gabrels (who used to play with David Bowie) and drummer Matt Johnson (from Jeff Buckley’s band).

Sharing the stage with Jeebus at Savannah’s will be Third Assault, All Out Riot and your musical hosts for the evening, ska punks Smittix.

UPDATE: The Hidden City has a killer photos (including BT taking a turn at the mic) from this show – you can see the photos or slideshow on Flickr.

Update #2: J. Eric Smith reviewed the show. We’re not sure but I think he liked it.
