Look here, Columbus...

You best be volunteering for Independents’ Day. It’s the best fest this city’s ever seen. YOU NEED TO BE THERE.

Because I will be! And so will lots of fantastic local bands and vendors and yummy food and amazing people who know everything about Columbus and love it with all of their hearts.

Join us, won’t you?

Happy 200th birthday, Columbus. You don’t look a day over 150. I know you’re having work done (new hotel in the Arena District, the never-ending construction on 670, a casino on the Eastside), but don’t let anyone make you feel bad about it. Just do what’s right for you. A little facelift by way of filling potholes and repaving roads is necessary at your age. I want you to know I love you on this very special Valentine’s Day.

To celebrate your bicentennial, hometown, I pledge to support local music and spread the gospel of rock ‘n’ roll across this great city and the interwebs. As a token of my esteem for Columbus music, here’s a video from one of the scene’s great white hopes, Times New Viking.

Let’s hear it for a Columbus North By Northwest Fest in the near future! We are the Austin of the Midwest! The Indie Art Capital of the World! The eaters of chocolate-covered peanut butter balls and drinkers of fine microbrews! Let’s make Columbus great in 2012!
