Twitter recently began rolling out a new feature called Lists – basically a way for you to organize and categorize the streams you follow on the service, both publicly and privately.
I funnel this Tumblr blog into a Twitter account – and while I don’t love how it renders there, I mostly did it to give people the opportunity of subscribing in a different place instead of Tumblr or via RSS, if they so choose. Since I started the account, I’ve also begun following a bunch of great music-related folks. And while it’s by no means comprehensive yet, I did a quick pass at organizing them today and wanted to share with you. For your tweetin’ pleasure, I give you:
- Music Bloggers & Blogs
- Music Magazines
- Music Festivals
- Record Labels
- Music 2.0 People and Companies
- and Philly Venues for y’all Philly folk like me.
If you’d like to be included on one of these lists, by all means, @yvynyl me.

Better Than The Van has a pretty slick new poster they’re selling on their site.
Touring isn’t cheap or easy. We know, we’ve done it for years. We’ve stayed in some great and not so great places while on tour, so we know it can be hit or miss. We figured people are fans of bands and bands become fans of other bands. If we give them all a place to meet under a common need, good things will come of it.
