Lazlo's Corner

And we're back!

New Music shows return this week and after over a month and we have a lot of new music to get to.

But my life is still a little bit busy, so I can't do super-sized shows like I wanted to, but we will likely have new music shows on 12/26 & 12/27, a week we usually take off.


A reminder as Twitter implodes under the "new management", that while we continue to be there, we are only posting site updates there. To get all the regular posts about music & other things I used to do on their, please follow us on Mastodon Social:

I've found Mastodon Social to be a much better social media site then Twitter, and there are no algorithms or monetization.

Since initially writing this column this morning the megalomaniac in charge has decided that any Twitter account with Mastodon Social links will be banned. As our Twitter account links to our Mastodon Social account I presume our Twitter account will soon become locked. So much for being a free speech absolutist, eh, Musk?


And a reminder, is preparing for its second annual benefit webathon for National Foundation For Transplants (the NFT that has value):

The NFT saves lives by removing financial barriers that delay or prevent organ transplantation. One of the many people they have helped is Catherine Wacha (who is working with me to put this benefit together), who received a kidney transplant, that was necessary due to having Lupus.

The webathon will take place on March 4th & 5th, 2023

Like our other webathons, the plan is to do a compilation of previously unreleased original songs, and a webathon where musicians perform live (due to the ongoing pandemic performances will be done remotely via Skype or pre-recorded)

There are 2 ways for musicians to be involved:

1. I am looking for previously unreleased original songs (which can include acoustic or live versions of previously released songs, remixes, etc.) for this year's compilation. I ask that all songs be original (no covers) and that they remain exclusive to the compilation until June 1st, 2023 (3 months from the webathon). The songs will be due by February 17th, but if you have something ready, please feel free to send it now. Otherwise, if you think you can have something for the compilation, please let me know.

2. Looking for musicians to perform a 30 minute live set, via Skype (as with all our broadcasts, the video is for us to see each other, only the audio will be broadcast on air), for our webathon. We will definitely be broadcasting on March 4th, if enough people are interested we will do March 4th & March 5th. If you prefer, you can pre-record a set, but please make this an exclusive set (i.e. not a set livestreamed already)

From Catherine Wacha:
"The benefit we did in 2022 was a huge success and the folks at National Foundation for Transplants were incredibly grateful for not only the money we raised but the awareness we all brought to the organization. It is an honor to be able to help them out again."

If you are interested in being part of the webathon or have any questions, please let me know.
