Just a quick note to congratulate Agent Ribbons on winning a contest put on by the incredible folks at the Dub Narcotic Studios in Olympia for five days of free studio time! The band corralled thousands of their fans to vote on their behalf, and in the end, the band with the most votes won the time. It wasn’t even close.
Dub Narcotic holds a special place in our hearts, as the home of Calvin Johnson and K Records, one of the prime movers in the 90s indie explosion and a continuing influence on DIY pop today. This is ground zero for the International Pop Underground folks! [editors note: younger readers who are not nearly as old and decrepit as the author may have to look this one up...]
