… of Huntington Avenue. That’s right, folks, the announcement is in. I’m running for Mayor this fall on behalf of WRBB as Manager and the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology as a senior student. What do I need from you? Starting November 1st we can start campaigning. If you take the time to Twitter, Facebook, or chalk about this, we can get the word out. BRENNAN FOR MAYOR. Make silly posters. Make trinkets. Somebody get me a goddamn tophat. I will make sure that your work is well-repaid when WRBB becomes the first media group in at least the past two years to be represented in a contest like this. Hell, I’ll run for the Big Four. Tastemakers, MEISA, CUP? I’m in this for you, too. Remember, no campaigning before the 1st (this coming Monday), but get ready. I want this to be fun and funny. Let’s win voters with the power of laughter. Only then will we slaughter the competition. Get it? See what I did there? Man, I’ve got this in the bag.
EDIT: Melissa played us a song on the air on Matt’s guitar. Why is it so cool? She claims she has never given an acoustic performance, let alone on guitar. WRBB Win. Today around 2pm, WRBB will be visited by Melissa auf der Maur (MadM) for a brief afternoon interview! Auf der Maur is most well-known for her time as bass player for Hole and her time in the early 2000′s touring with the Smashing Pumpkins. In addition, MadM has a new film called “Out of Our Minds” that she will be showing tonight at 8pm in the Coolidge Corner Theater with a special live performance. Tune in to WRBB today near 2pm to hear the exclusive interview! From her website: OUT OF OUR MINDS | OOOM began as a song. It was the early stages of making this second solo album. I was in French Kiss Studios working with my solid CANADIAN collaborators. The song introduced itself as songs do, and the heart of the album was born: “Travel Out Of Our Minds, Into Our Hearts Standing By.” It was mid first decade of the 21st Century and technology had just begun to dismantle the music business towers. It was the best thing that could’ve ever happened to me. The landscape changed and I began to morph my roots in visual arts with the music. The many portals of OOOM invite listeners and viewers to discover on their own, at their own pace and in their own space. If you’re listening, Come in… xMAdMx
