"480 Minutes" - Australia x 5

Two contests to tell you about: first, we have tickets to give away for Monday's show at The Independent featuring Sea WolfHey Marseilles, and The Donnies the Amys. The legendary DJ Elise from Indie Pop Rocks (the internet radio station that inspired BAGeL Radio) will be spinning between the sets.  Buy tickets here (and then bring friends if you win!).  So, when you hear and Earlimart song during today's 480 Minutes show (Fridays, 9a.m. - 5p.m. Pacific Time), get in touch.  Please note that the gig is 21+ so you must be 21+ to win tickets.

The other contest is for all of you DJs and remixer-types out there.  SF/BKLN band Wildlife Control are running a contest allowing folks to remix their song "Analog Or Digital" (see the excellent video below) and the best one will win some amazing prizes: a year of SoundCloud Pro, a Maschine Mikro, and Komplete 8.  Yes, this is serious!

Speaking of serious, if you are a California voter overwhelmed by the propositions on next Tuesday's ballot, don't fret.  There are a couple of thorough voter guides that you can read online and/or print to take with you.  One is provided by KQED, the other by the SF Bay Guardian.  Both are worth reading -- they explain what the propositions do, who is backing them, and highlight the pros and cons.

Because I've gotten a few more "Help! Where'd BAGeL Radio go?!" e-mails this week, let me reiterate that **Loudcaster has closed***  Their instance of the BAGeL Radio stream is no longer accessible.  If you were listening to BAGeL Radio via TuneIn you may not have even been aware that it was their stream you were listening to.  The good news is, rectifying the situation is easy -- just search for 480 Minutes on TuneIn, or your Sonos desktop controller, or whathaveyou -- that stream will work.  If you need help repointing any device to the SomaFM stream of BAGeL Radio, please go to for instructions/links, or use the contact information below to get in touch and we'll be happy to help.

Today on 480 Minutes we will debut new songs by Abbe May (Perth, Australia), The Barbaras (Memphis, TN), Black Moth Super Rainbow (Pittsburgh, PA), The Blackwater Fever (Brisbane, Australia), The Coup (Oakland, CA), Earlimart (Los Angeles, CA), Grape Soda (Athens, GA), GRMLN (Santa Cruz, CA), The Hoot Hoots (Seattle, WA), Sea Wolf (Los Angeles, CA), A Shoreline Dream (Denver, CO), Sic Alps (San Francisco, CA), Skipping Girl Vinegar (Melbourne, Australia), Talk Normal (Brooklyn, NY), Tamaryn (San Francisco, CA), Titus Andronicus (Glen Rock, New Jersey), Tracksuit (Perth, Australia), The Trashed Romeos (Memphis, TN), and Voltaire Twins (Perth, Australia).  That's five Australian acts today.  Strewth!
