Those on a tight budget these days who happen to be fans of atmospheric Indie Rock band Cari Clara will be happy to hear that the next CC album will be made available for free as a download. The release date is still up in the air, but expect it soon (we’ll keep you posted). While you’re anxiously awaiting the freebies, be sure to check out Cari Clara Friday at the Northside Tavern, with special guests The Koala Fire and Lexington’s Chico Fellini (who were a hit at last year’s MidPoint Music Festival). In keeping with the recession theme, Friday’s show is also free. Get more Rumors, Lies and General Misunderstandings here.
