Therefore, here is a sampling of the festival just to get you all revved up.
Of course as always there are WAY too many bands to play in one hour (duh) so this is just the tip of the iceberg. If you want to know more (and I know you do) go to https://cmw.net/music/schedule-2/

Ruby Slippers April 26 2019 7-8 pm

Hey hey everybody!

This is the last week of April (spring? are we there yet?) and with that comes CMW in two weeks and the CIUT membership drive and all sorts of amazing stuff ahead. Hang on, it's going to be good.

So...to kick this period of high octane off, we have a special treat.

Nikki from the popular "Everything and the Kitchen Sink" podcast has put together a capsule playlist from her #NoPantsRecordStoreShopping feature on Twitter. This is just a sampling of the curated list she generates regularily and in fact, tonight's show is one day before this month's new edition.
If you are not familiar with #NoPants, the premise is that each hour for a full day  tweets with  hyperlinks to  bands will appear at @IsGlobalAGoGo giving everyone a chance to support artists digitally. A Godsend for folks from remote communities without access to bricks and mortar record shops as well as those of us who prefer to go shopping for our music in our pjs!
Those selections are noted in the playlist below as well as how you can follow along on April 27th.

Ready? Let's go!

Parasol ... The Velvet Ants *
Heroes (Killers) ... Pterodactyl Problems *
Kick Fix ... Kutch *
The Beat My Heart Skips ...Dove Pilot *
Best Time ... In The City *

#No Pants Record Shopping starts NOW:

Your Love Fades Away ... Simone Denny *
Dead of Night ... Orville Peck
Eye 2 Eye ...Witching Waves
Bella Ciao ... Alex Jonestown Massacre
Plastic Ocean ... Sugarmen
Crimson Telephone ... The Coathangers
Itching Brains ... Shaking Heads
Spider Web Pt. 1 ... The Budos Band
Fearless ... Flying Horses *

Thx so much Nikki! Just the tip of the iceberg

And then there is
Land of Make Believe ....Moody Blues
Beautiful Trap ... The Spoons *
Kali Imminent ... Sounds Around *
Orange County Lumber Truck ... Frank Zappa

Thanks for listening.
