First, a great article on hip-hop journalism history: Negritude 2.0: Vibe: Hard to Let it Go.  Also note that the author’s dream of an all-encompassing vision is still waiting to be realized and is important enough for someone to do the honors.

And then a great resource.  Blues Festival Guide which has its own newsletter:
weekly newsletter.  I subscribe to it and recommend it to anyone with any interest in blues.  You learn about great new releases, archives, upcoming festivals and more.

That’s probably it from me until after the madness that is SXSW.  Maybe I’ll see you in Austin.  If not, talk to you when I get back.
