Gas money.

I’ll be travelling to Austin, Texas, next month to play a South by Southwest showcase gig with Delicate Cutters. Our label, Skybucket, is sponsoring the gig, and several other Birmingham-based bands are playing.

As gas, food, and lodging don’t come cheap these days, some folks have organized four fundraising concerts in Birmingham. The audience for these shows gets some great music, and the bands (hopefully) make it to Austin and back without breaking the bank. Sounds like a win-win to me.

The shows…

Remember ffmpeg2theora? While it will convert “.mp4” video files, it won’t convert “.mov” files. And that might not be obvious from the app’s… er, minimalist error messages.
