Listen to Episode 80 [audio http://thisweekonlot.files.wordpress.com/2011/07/twol80.mp3]
It's been a crazy few weeks for the TWoL crew. Between us we've been to festivals on both sides of the country, seen some Phish, seen some untz, and everything in between. The last few updates have been special episodes first from Phish SBIX and then from Camp Bisco. We hope you enjoyed those special reports we definitely like being able to give on the spot updates.
This week we have Steve, Emilie and myself on. Emilie gives a quick rundown of the HSMF that she attended. While it sounds like she had a slight case of Phish festival regret the overall festival was amazing. Especially the h3tty organic foam pit, you'll have to listen to get the details.
TWoL is all about live music (mainly focused on jambands) so we thought it would irresponsible for us not to point out that the Gathering of the Juggalos is coming up on Aug 11th. Everybody's favorite winner Charlie Sheen is set to host one night along with Dustin Diamond. The festival has so much going on it promises to provide 24/7 activities from wrestlers to Faygo wet t-shirt contests. In the words of the immortal James Brown, please please please if you know someone attending have them leave a lot report! We're curious to see what exactly happens at this event. 419-NO-WOOKS is the number!
Our brahs over at Cash or Trade have started a new site called LiveMusicMatch.com where you can try and find a h3tty moma. This is basically a site to make friends (or more) with people who are into the same music you are.
Jam Cruise 10 has added a few more bands to their lineup. If you haven't got your tickets for Jam Cruise yet make sure you do so right away, tickets are about 90% sold out!
Perpetual Groove is having a Facebook contest to win tickets to their 5 upcoming shows in Florida. Check out this link for the details on how you can win. If you've never seen Perpetual Groove we recommend you get your ass out to these shows!

We had a lot of new voice mails to play and a lot of first time callers. Thank you to everyone who left us a message we appreciate you taking the time!
Two cool new music applications where released recently and we just wanted to give them a shout out. Spotify allows users to stream music and create playlists they can share with friends at a portion of the cost of iTunes. Turntable allows users to be their own virtual DJ. While we don't know much about this new service it sounds cool, check it out and let us know what you think.
That wraps it up for this week, make sure you take a listen to the episode to get all the details. We'll see you next week on lot!
