Randy Bewley

Yesterday we lost Pylon guitarist Randy Bewley all too soon.

As a lifelong resident growing up in the Athens area, Pylon was one local act that influenced me as much or more than my favorite international artists. While their reunions were frequent, we never know when we've already seen someone's last show. It's another reason to support live music, to see your favorite acts and your like-minded friends when you can, because everyone should enjoy times with others before the next unexpected loss.

No Sprockets Music Video Competition This Year

I have just learned from film::athens that the heretofore annual music video competition will not be part of AthFest 2009 and will instead be reorganized into a new event at a likely much later date.

Entering this contest had been a goal of mine for this year but it really doesn't matter. I'll have at least two or three new music videos well before summer, anyway.
