Quickie. Obviously there are bands DiS writers are especially fond of; often writers are alone(ish) in their admiration of a certain act. When it's a Proper New Band in question, do you message board loitering types actually pay said band any notice?
I just wonder if the 'new' acts we select to write about are being checked out by our readers. I'd like to think so; the DiScover shows are always busy, at least.
It's nice to see names appearing on the boards from time to time: MMISL, Fuck Buttons, The Wave Pictures, Rolo Tomassi, Deerhunter. But are you guys listening to these bands, buying their stuff, trying to see a show?
