There’s some notable additions to the sidebar for 2009:

* Poisson D’Avril – Written by Christopher R. Weingarten, ex-drummer of Parts and Labor, ex-editor of Paper Thin Walls, in 2009 Weingarten will seek to tweet 1,000 album reviews. Five days into ’09 and he’s already up to number 7. He’ll have to pick up that pace if he’s to meet his goal.

* Citizen Dick – A new music blog (mostly) based in Cleveland with one Chicago writer. They’re currently counting down their favorites of ’09.

* Pink Eye Magazine – Online and print based arts magazine from Cleveland. The latest issue featured a lengthy story on the “architecture” of the classic Parma home. Oh, the memories…

* Messy Magazine – Web based, Cleveland created arts magazine with unique themes driving each issue.
