B-Sides - MUSIC & OTHER EPHEMERA


Edible audible

Chew on this: The Mohnton, Pa., group Innerpartysystem is poised to become the first band ever (at least that’s what the press release says) to put out a 7-inch single made entirely of chocolate. Sadly, the single, “Don’t Stop,” is being released in the U.K. and the run is limited to 100 copies. And I’m hungry. 


Stomp comp

The Fairdale, Ky.-based organization Stomp Out Cancer is looking or a few good bands to contribute songs to its upcoming compilation CD. Interested scribes can contact Jake Wheat, Stomp Out Cancer Inc., Jake A. Wheat, P.O. Box 216, Fairdale, Ky., 40118, call 489-1501 or e-mail info@stompoutcancer.com.


Whole ’grass

Whole Foods Market is hosting the bluegrass group Relic on Wednesday, July 2, for a 5 p.m. free show. Who couldn’t use a little serenading while you’re shopping for soymilk and veggie burgers?

LEO Music Editor Mat Herron is debating which frozen veggie burgers are better: Boca or Morningstar. He’s leaning Morningstar. Contact mherron@leoweekly.com
