Happy Ending? Local music comes to Project Runway

August 31, 2009

As long as we're talking "farewell song," let's play it while we dismiss Tim Gunn (left) from this picture.

We would follow Heidi Klum just about anywhere, but following the supermodel and the show she hosts, Project Runway, from Bravo to Lifetime was a bitter pill to swallow. There are only so many Meredith Baxter movies and Golden Girls reruns we can take, and the network has a tendency to dish out plenty of both, but at least we’re given a 60-minute Heidi Oasis to… wait, what were we talking about? Ah, yes, television. The new season of Project Runway began recently, and it turns out one longtime member of the local music scene will be giving us added incentive to watch the show this year. Find out about the best thing on the show after its buxom host after the break.

It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Brannon Powers, the happyendings/The Whitest Light singer turned solo artist. He toured with Kate Voegele through the latter half of May, then it was back to work on making music. The latest finished tune from that effort is a perky track titled “You Will Never Know,” a thoroughly enjoyable summertime song you can hear by clicking on these funny-colored words.

Benefit for local musician hit by car

October 13, 2008

We just caught word of this late last night from Dan Magnum of Forever Endeavor Productions. Tommy, drummer of A Day Away and Springfield’s famous drumming group The Cadence, was hit by a car…yes I said hit by a car. He’s hurt really bad and needs support from the music community to help him get by. 

Fellow musicians to the rescue. A bunch of big names in the Springfield music scene are working together to put on a benefit show to help raise money so Tommy can pay some bills while he’s laid up.

Full show info, flyer, and A Day Away’s blog post after the jump…
