“Steady snow will diminish to a few snow flurries by 5pm. ” – Weather.com
The show is still going on, unless Sonar’s entrance becomes encased in a mountain of ice or snow.
Tonight is the big night.
I want to say a big thanks to our biggest sponsor, Atomic Books. In addition to running a treasure trove of a bookstore, dynamic duo proprietors Benn Ray (who also blogs at Mobtown Shank) & Rachel Whang are ardent supporters of everything local, and have been our most generous partner in stuffing the Aural States Fest giveaway bags with tons of goodies, two years running.
Remember, only the first 50 paid entrants get these gems, so come early. Offerings also include discounts at Daedalus Books & Music, CDs from Pontiak’s label Thrill Jockey, the Baltimore Jazz Alliance, and Dischord, as well as vinyl from local experimental hive Ehse Records.
New this year are deep discounts on Emily Mandri’s unique silkscreened and handpainted Natty Paint line of clothing. Dig through your bag for their coupon and stop by their table at the fest.
