It’s election day! I’m posting from rainy Florence, Italy–absentee ballot already cast–but make the effort into get out to the polls and vote. Every election is a big election, so get out and let your voice be heard.

In other news, about a week and a half ago I had the pleasure of going out and seeing Tim Be Told play at Ebenezers Coffee House in Washington, DC. The rock/jazz/soul quintet gave their fans a healthy dose of a feel good buzz to take with them on a Friday night. Playing to a packed house just blocks away from the National Mall, Tim Be Told lit up faces and enlightened ears with favorites like “Collison” and “Gravity’s Hold” from their debut album, Getting By. The band–Tim Ouyang (vocals/keys), Luan Nguyen (guitar/vocals), Andrew Chae (guitar), Jim Barredo (drums) and Parker Stanley (bass)–even slowed things down with an acoustic intermission, treating the crowd with covers and less frequently played material. They held nothing back, also showcasing tracks from their upcoming record. It was definitely a fun show, and hanging out with the guys after the show–it was business as usual with plenty of jokes and shenanigans. Check out this video below, or watch it on their blog for a glimpse of what I’m talking about.

Tim Be Told has just announced the launch of the TBTStore. The online store features band merchandise such as CDs, shirts and posters. In fact, the band has an exclusive, limited time offer:
