Getting Deep Into Rock

February 29, 2008 11:39 AM

Here’s your Friday fun video, but with a little twist.

Rather than give you a video, I want to tell you about something you can watch today at 7 p.m. Pacific.

It’s www.deeprockdrive.com. The site produces live interactive concerts featuring up-and-coming musicians. You might remember the name because I mentioned it in an episode of the New Media Minute, or you might recall the site because it was integrated in several episodes of Web series “Quarterlife.” (Can we even call it a TV series anymore?)

At any rate, I am digging DeepRockDrive and I think it represents the future of the music industry. The concerts are interactive and viewers can vote—in real time—on the set list and the order of the songs for the musicians to play.

So if you want to check out a show, tonight at 7 p.m. Pacific, you can watch the band Lydia Vance, billed for fans of Thin Lizzy, Elvis Costello, Squeeze or the Living End.

Check it out here:
