I'm a big NPR fan. I recently discovered the music page on their web site, and I am even more in love. Go ahead, dive right in check it out. If you are looking for a few good places to start, try listening to Josh Ritter live in studio. Or, Ray Lamontagne live in concert from this past Monday night at the 9:30 club in D.C. Or, you can sit your office paying bills and listen to Damien Rice, live from this past Friday, like I am right now. I just realized that all three of these men have graced the stage at Iota, before they started charging $40 for shows and I stopped paying their high prices. I still love them, but now I get them free on NPR. The Open Mic page allows you to check out some great bands that aren't charging $40 yet, like one of my favorites Middle Distance Runner. After all, you can't beat free. I love the internet.
