A few months back, I wrote about giving yourself a good cushion for album releases, i.e. you shouldn’t still be frantically working on finishing your album on May 10 if you’ve had a big album release concert scheduled for May 14 on the calendar months ago. Considering that it takes about 3 weeks for the average replication company to press, print, assemble, shrink-wrap, and ship your product, that should have been part of the schedule from the start!
It's another week, and I've been forwarded yet another youtube video that I MUST see. This time it's some guy lipsynching to Moosebutter's brilliant John Williams Medley (with lyrics all about Star Wars). Struck me as odd at first (the song's several years old), and then I got a little mad (why aren't they the ones getting the credit)... And then I saw the view count. Over two million. Let's assume on average that people watch it twice. That's still one million people checking out this video.

Concordia College in Moorhead, MN is quickly becoming the spot for a cappella music in the area. Over the past 10 years or so the school has been putting on their "A Cappella Night" events. Starting in the late 90's with Concordia group Marcoux Corner they have brought in the likes of: Blind Mans Bluff, Shadow, InPulse, Chapter 6, Naturally 7, FACE, The Fault Line and more. The last few years they have done 2-3 "A Cappella Night" celebrations each school year. This year they are likely to hit 4-5 events with their biggest and best happening last week. Here are some details.
Here are a few of my thoughts upon picking BOCA tracks:
