Happy New Year, and stuff.

Happy New Year everyone! Hope you've all slept off your hangovers, its time to get '08 going! For those of you in New York, there's a couple of big music events happening this weekend that I'd like to throw out if you hadn't heard already:

First off, tonight (Thursday 1/3), Mr. Oizo is DJing at Hiro Ballroom at GBH's weekly "Cheeky Bastard" party. There is free admission with an RSVP here. I'm a bigger fan of Oizo's pre-Ed Banger music, but hopefully he mixes things up a bit tonight.

Tomorrow night, "People Don't Dance No More" is celebrating their 1 year anniversary at Studio B with Metro Area and Tim Sweeney from DFA. It should be a lot of fun, I've been wanting to see Metro Area for a long time, and it seems like perfect mood music for this cold weather (despite the fact that Studio B will be near-tropical inside as always.



In Light of the little discussion we've been having in the comments section of the WRM 008 Post, I wanted to post a couple of links to stories of somewhat related interest, from the Daily Swarm:
· Mashable.com: RIP, RIAA, 1952-2008?
· New York Times: Major-Label Hip-Hop on its last legs?


And now a couple of treats from the past and the future, from our man, Armand Van Helden.
