Swell Season: Tiny Desk Concert (NPR)

Well I'm about 4 weeks late on this but Glen and Marketa of Swell Season stopped by to play an acoustic mini-concert at the desk of NPR's Bob Boilen. Thanks to podcasts, my ipod and a recent roadtrip up to Monterey, I've become a big fan of NPR's All Songs Considered. In this edition, Swell Season showcase six new songs off their upcoming album, Strict I'm really looking forward to getting on Oct. 27th. If you haven't seen them live (or the movie Once), I highly recommend. Great musicians and very sincere people.

Swell Season will be at the Wiltern Nov. 18th (tickets) and elsewhere

Two things

1) I’d like your permission to (re)print your article on Flight of the conchords for our website

2) I was hoping we could use your ‘scribing’ talent for our website.

The Best Shows Youre Not Watching (dot) com [all one word]

Flight of the conchords is one of our featured shows. We’re hoping to round up a few people who can occasionally contribute perspective (via an article/blog) on the shows – maybe a recent episode, future direction, plot shortcomings etc.

What’s in it for you?
Primarily a larger audience back channeled to your blog. We don’t pay but the site has a lot of promise and we're pretty excited about getting it off the ground. Let me know what you think.
