If anyone ever says to you that there's nothing going on in the local music scene, feel free to smack them in the mouth with this blog. Here are a few notes from around town (and beyond) of the hard work local musicians are putting into their art:
First up, North Idaho indie pop band the Flying Mammals is on a tour of the midwest — but are taking a break from their tour schedule to play music for cancer patients at Midwestern Regional Medical Center. The band decided to stray from their tour when they learned that longtime fan of the band, Melvin Hall, is a patient there. Check out the band's music here.
Local purveyor of all things dark and creepy, Dan Ocean — aka Black Ceiling — continues to woo listeners around the world. He has more tape releases than we have fingers, and has another release coming out in April. For now, see his current release here.
