the a's rule

Went to a Minus Vince show in Campbell tonight, their first down there. There were a number of bands playing and the crowd was fairly sparse. Most of the people that came showed up for MV, so that's cool I suppose. They did a good job as usual, and have many more gigs scheduled. Maybe this is the beginning of a more dedicated season of gigging that will take them out of the confines of the Fremont Iceoplex.

There was a documentary on PBS a while ago called "Merchants of Cool" that talked about marketing to teenagers. I'd be interested in seeing that. Maybe even watching it with the youth group. I don't know how excited they'd be to watch a documentary...but the subject matter is totally interesting to me. It's about the people in big companies that decide which bands to market, what trends to push, that sort of thing.
