It has been one year since I started this blog. I celebrated by letting the domain name expire and then scrambling to repurchase it before I ruined everything. The talented women over at Band Bombshell, though, they had a much better idea than I did. They decided to throw a party. A birthday party is a much better idea. They also didn’t purchase a domain name. Also, a solid move.

So, go celebrate the one year anniversary of another of Iowa’s great music blogs. I like them very much. People would wonder why I would plug the competition, but I think considering anyone trying to promote the scene, and/or make their own type of art as competition is just stupid. We are all trying to achieve the same goal, only they go about it in a much different way than I. I am a little more self-centered. I like to talk about myself a lot more than others like to talk about me. Or talk about themselves, I guess. Full of cool Q&A’s and other neat journalistic type stuff, Band Bombshell is a great resource for those trying to learn about Des Moines and stuff happening in Des Moines.

Tonight at 10pm at Mews, they celebrate their first year. They do it in style with music from Gloom Balloon, Dustin Smith and the Sunday Silos and Volcano Boys. Should be a good time.
