I'm going to post every (week)day right around quittin' time, in the spirit of many of the sites I read. They end the day by posting interesting links around the Internet, focusing on their particular beat. Now, this is a music blog, but it's also a New York blog, and I'm a real estate reporter, so there's bound to be some local stuff now and then. I'll also end each post with a random musical recommendation.
Take a look!
