If you buy a coffee or pastry at Coffee Ethic this Thursday and any Thursday to come, you’ll hear some of Springfield Music’s best talent serenading you while you wait in line. TheFourFour.com is partnering with the Park Central Branch Library to bring Local Music Day to The Coffee Ethic every Thursday. It’s simple: We’ve loaded dozens of local music LPs and EPs into the coffee shop’s computer system, so you’ll hear fresh local tunes pumping through the stereo all day. We’ve included albums we’ve received from bands for reviews, for website streaming and for use on z106.7’s Rock Talk. In addition, we’re working with the Park Central Branch Library to load in its selection of avialable albums–present and, particularly, past. The playlist will be updated with a handful of new albums worked into the rotation each month. Best of all, for those who come in and hear something they like, information will be on hand to find out where to turn to find out more about the music they hear. After all, what good is it to arrive home with your Thursday-afternoon pick-me-up and not be able to fire up that great song you heard while you ordered it?
Coming Thursday: Local music with your latte
