"ROCK" BANDS

On the subject of publicity, rock bands, open mindednes, etc. Lollapalooza's definitely out. I was at 95 in WV. Pavement got attacked with mudballs because they didn't "rock" enough. Half the crowd cleared out for Sonic Youth. But bands like Stereolab, Ui, Gastr del Sol, Tortoise, etc, those of who are surviving the collapse of indie-rock and moving out into new musical territories, some of these are known Sun Ra fans. They also tour. Connections have to happen. I expect Stereolab to tour again soon since they have new records in the works (with interesting wind arrangements no less). Perhaps the Arkestra could join them for a North East leg. This is all hypothetical of course, but something like this is possible. People into the bands mentioned above will be people with open ears. Or at least a good chunk of them will be. James
