I’ve got one quick announcement for today. I’ve recently started contributing to the local music coverage in the Cool Cleveland e-blast newsletter under my real name, “Bill Lipold” and not the nom de plume you’ve become accustomed to, “Bill Rocks Cleveland.” The current issue features a fresh new review of The Black Diamonds debut disc in anticipation of their show Friday night.

…And one quick plug. If you live in the Cleveland area, or are originally from Greater Cleveland, and don’t already subscribe to Cool Cleveland, do it. The weekly newsletter contains extensive coverage of local arts, music, news, and events. When you sign up be sure to add CoolCleveland as a contact so all of that cool stuff doesn’t go straight to the trash.

…And one shout out to Peter Chakerian for bringing me on-board to Cool Cleveland.

I’m done. Let’s get back to the Rock.
