gearing up, tracking down

Last year, the Sundance Film Festival brought to town several stellar music acts including Beastie Boys, Broken Social Scene, Iron & Wine, Rufus Wainwright, Imogen Heap, Mike Doughty and even Metallica. This year's offerings are few and far between. BMI is hosting a singer/songwriter showcase featuring, among others, Chris Stills; ASCAP/Filter is presenting The Album Leaf, Sean Lennon, Donovan and others but the night shows are a bit difficult to get into—even for those holding festival credentials. MySpace is apparently in residence at Harry O's, but no word on who's appearing or whether anyone without awesome connections and/or silicon implants will be able to get in. Keep your ears open and your arse warm—even if you track down "secret shows," you'll be waiting in line for a long, long time. Believe the hype, just don't get bogged down in it. Until next time ...
