Links from Tony

So, Tony had a link to this great article about Lookout, their history, and their present. Lookout has had some great bands, with OpIvy and Green Day being their cash cows, but other well known bands such as Avail, Pansy Division, and the Donnas. The other interesting thing about the article is how the west coast punk scene ties together, with mentions about Epitaph, Fat Wreck Chords (which I think is a great name), and Asian Man all woven throughout the story.

For those who aren't familiar with Lookout at all, here's a list of notable alubms.

Staying on the musical trend, Kaddisfly happened to play at Miller's Tuesday night. Kim (one of the employees at Miller's) was telling us that the band just asked to play. There's a part of me that thinks I've seen them before, opening for someone else, but I could be totally wrong. Anyway, they were a pretty solid band, and it was definitely nice to have some real music in town.

Planned Parenthood in Southeastern Pennslyvania has this great fundraiser going on. I wonder how the campaign will turn out, and if it'll be effect at reducing protesters or not . . . in Montana, Planned Parenthood recently celebrated the fact that there was a law passed to try and reduce the impact of protesters
