This Wednesday is not quite as quiet as last Wednesday was, but it does still give a nice chance for reflection: what are your favorite local music blogs or sources of music news? Any favorite local bands that I haven’t listed on my links page? Any thoughts or comments about how this blog is formatted or the types of things I cover?
