if you couldn't tell by listening to our visit to the TBTL studios on Wednesday night (listen here to the 9p slot on 4/1/09), we are so utterly excited for the big Top of the Croc bash to commemorate the grandest of re-openings of the Crocodile tomorrow night (Saturday 4/4).
Join us Saturday, April 4th for a night of indie-pop and other sweet things as we welcome back the Crocodile with "Awesome", Tullycraft, BOAT, and iji... and some surprises.
Are you just as excited for the re-opening of our beloved croc as we are? Well then check out our Top of the Croc imaginary fun night on April 4th.

Our dear friends over at Indiepages have posted their top 40 songs of the year (split up between EPs and LPs of course) for free download! So much free music!
TIG staffers are a lot like you -- coming up with our list of faves for the year is a fun and gripping process. After comparing/contrasting/debating our individual favorites, we figured the sum of our imaginary parts would make for an interesting list.

Imaginary liz, as usual, loved the lo-fi and indie-pop songs, while imaginary dana spent much of the year obessed with Throw the the Statue and of course, the Fleet Foxes. And nearly all of us agreed that the Saturday Knights album was a force to be reckoned with. Here's our our staff votes tallied up...
I'm always terrible at finishing best-of lists. I have a tendency of being at least half a year behind on albums everyone else loves.
You better hope gas prices stay low until February! Portland's fantastic Magic Marker Records just announced their anniversary show! And it's amazing!
