According to many news sources including the Bay Areas renown SFGate, Furthur will not be playing at Napa, CA’s BottleRock Festival on opening night. No other replacement has been announced at this time. According to Bob Weir‘s website:

“Due to unforeseen circumstances, Furthur regretfully will be unable to appear as scheduled at BottleRock Napa Valley on Thursday, May 9. Grateful Dead & Furthur Co-Founder Bob Weir, is unable to perform in any capacity for the next several weeks. Bob looks forward to resuming his “Weir Here” broadcasts from TRI Studios in mid to late June and performing his Solo acoustic shows June 26-30. Furthur featuring Phil Lesh & Bob Weir look forward to returning to the road as scheduled on July 11 in Brooklyn for their Summer tour, which carries them through early October on the West Coast.”

Hope you feel better soon Bobby. Much love!!

Running into this article on the SFGate Business Report gave me some hope for the future of music sales. Seems the industry is finally figuring out a model that is being embraced by the consumer.

Tracking firm Nielsen SoundScan said Wednesday that overall album sales rose nearly 4 percent to 221.5 million units, from 213.6 million a year ago.

Only time will tell if music sales will continue to increase again.

With this in mind, how do you get most of your music these days? Do you purchase it physically in a store still, do you purchase your music online via iTunes or some other online store, or do you obtain your music from copies online and/or from friends?

Where’s the best place to get music these days?
