Okay, I live in Calgary...so this is Nickelback country as far as bands go. We're very supportive of our indy bands. My manager at work, his brother has a band with a CD out. The band's called Jolene's Drum and the album is Red September. For now the CD is just available in Calgary, but it's red-hot right now...people are loving it. So, visit www.jolenesdrum.com and check out the title track, it's available for download there. If you like it, hopefully the online store'll be up soon so you can pick up the album. If anybody else wants to shamelessly promote a band...DO IT HERE AND NOW! PEACE, LOVE AND CANADIAN BEER!
A lot of the major convienence stores are carrying prepaid credit cards now. I think it has a $20 activation fee attached with the original purchase but life is most wonderful when you can easily shop online without fear.
