Friends in Bellwoods 2 Live Recordings.

One of the best shows I've been to this year was the Friends in Bellwoods release party at Lee's Palace a couple Fridays back. I told you about it earlier. You can read my fellow blogger---bloggist?---Joe's take on this event and the one that happened the next day (part 1, part 2) over at his blog, Mechanical Forest Sound. He's a great live reviewer, but his blog comes with exclusive bonus features: live song recordings! He posts tracks from the shows he goes to, the intention being to capture some of the excitement of the local scene for posterity's sake. He's put together a compilation of his own to compliment his coverage of the Friends in Bellwoods celebrations. You can download the full hour and a half of music here.

Here's the full rundown on what's in it:

Don't forget, folks, this is all for a good cause — if you like this, feel free to do something to help your local food bank!

And, natch, remember to support the artists involved.
