MidPoint Submissions Deadline Friday

Just a friendly blog reminder (or blogminder?) that musicians wishing to be considered for a performance slot at this year's MidPoint Music Festival at the end of September need to do so by this Friday. Spread the word. Interested parties can go here to submit (click on the "Get Heard" in the upper right corner).—-

In other MPMF09 developments, the first performer for the fest has been announced. Ex-Drive-By Trucker Jason Isbell and his band the 400 Unit will appear at MidPoint this fall. Also, the MPMF site now has a forum where you can complain about stuff, er, inquire politely and discuss civilly anything MPMF-related. And, like every other entity in the universe (seriously — the mold in my basement now tweets), you can follow MidPoint on Twitter (twitter.com/MidPointMusic) to get the latest news, like showcase anouncements and when you can expect to hear about your submission status.
