The owner of a long-running local venue and recording studio called The Talent Farm in Pembroke Pines, FL is currently seeking a new investor or partner to take over running the establishment. In the short term, they are looking for some help to stay afloat while the future of the venue takes shape. If you'd like to help, you can donate and equally as important for those living in the South Florida area, please share the news. The Talent Farm is not only a prime location for local South Florida bands to play, but has hosted shows by many AP.net favorites such as The Wonder Years, Title Fight, Balance and Composure, Fireworks, Man Overboard and too many more to name. Chances are that most...

Don't expect Justin Vernon to write another Bon Iver record anytime soon. He recently told TripleJ that he doesn't "really write songs anymore." Vernon's other project, Volcano Choir, released its new album, Repave, today.
"I don't really write songs anymore," he said. "The last Bon Iver record was a very 'sitting down with a guitar and writing' kind of record. I really have to be in a specific headspace to even begin to illuminate an idea that would create another Bon Iver record, and I'm just not there. I'm really honoured that Bon Iver gives me a platform to do whatever I want, but there's only so much time you can spend digging through yourself before you become insular. I'm not in...

If you ever dreamed of being able to purchase a kale salad with a side of Arcade Fire, then today's your lucky day. Select Whole Foods stores will now be selling vinyl records along side all the organic, gluten-free food you can handle.
Whole Foods has good reason to get into the music game: Starbucks, of course, has been selling music for white people and those who love them for years. And concerning vinyl, 2012 saw a 19% upswing in wax sales, a trend that has been consistent for the last half decade. Urban Outfitters, a master of disseminating and commodifying alternative culture, has had success with vinyl as well.

While we don't believe someone expressing their sexuality to be newsworthy, it's always nice to show support for those in the community who are brave enough to do so. Today, Jenny Owen Youngs has come out of the closet and written a lengthy blog about her sexuality. All of us at AP.net couldn't be more proud and happier for Jenny and we hope that her act of courage inspires others.
I’m writing to tell you, among other things, that I am super gay. This may or may not come as a surprise to you. If it does: Surprise! If it does not: You were right all along! Either way: Hooray! I didn’t want to come out. I don’t want coming out to be a thing that anyone has to do. A short list of things...

Bobby Womack, who released the superb "comeback" album The Greatest Man In The Universe last year which was produced by Damon Albarn and Richard Russell, has revealed that he has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's and is in the early stages of the disease.
From The Interview"The doctor says there are signs of Alzheimer’s, it’s not bad yet but will get worse." he told BBC 6 Music, "How can I not remember songs I wrote? It’s frustrating."

"The most embarrassing thing was when we were getting ready to announce Damon and I can't remember his last name," he continued, "That's so embarrassing."
