150th Post!

This marks the 150th post at Dry Paint Signs.

Although it took awhile for this blog to find itself, I think it's safe it to say that its current incarnation of concert review resource has been the most popular.  July was a record month for the site, receiving almost a quarter of its all-time views.  Then, in August, that number was more than doubled.

Stories have been quoted by Brooklyn Vegan, flat-out stolen by Gothamist, and even tweeted by the lead singer of the Heavy.

I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to read my articles because I take a lot of time crafting them.  I especially want to thank the repeat readers, who check back daily for new posts.

Here's just a few of the shows I'll be going to in the next few weeks, so you can get excited prematurely:

The Postelles @ Cameo Gallery
Band of Horses @ House of Vans
Dr. Dog @ Rumsey Playfield
Farm Aid
Global Festival

Also, I'm going to start having some contests on the site to attract more readers, and give away some bonus download codes that I get from buying vinyls.

For a digital copy of Bon Iver by Bon Iver:

Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) is from Eau Claire, WI.  What is the name of the biggest record store in Eau Claire?

First person to correctly answer in the comments below within 24 hours gets it.  Please leave your email address with your answer. (Don't comment if you own the album.  There's no bonus tracks or anything; just the same ten tracks you already have.)
