I was down at the record_runner
to pick up the special
edition of Sahara Hotnights' Jenny Bomb
's well-considered recommendation), and at
the counter picked up "Ottawa.Indie.Vibe", a free CD put together
by the Rideau business district association. I had picked up a
couple more CDs, so the free one sat around unwrapped for a few
days, but I've just popped it in, and whee! it's great. I really
need to learn more about the local music scene. I wish the CD
were a little more band-heavy and a little less about individual
musicians, but there is still kicking in progress here.
