1. Project of the Day—In 1964, Bob Parsons bought his stepson Gram Parsons (who you may know from influential band The Byrds or his equally influential solo work) a place to perform music. That place was Derry Down, and it went on to host shows by Parsons and a bunch of other legendary musicians like Tom Petty and the Allman Brothers. The building’s since fallen into disrepair, but with some fixing up it could once again become a legendary place to hear music.

  2. Project of the Day—j.viewz’ DNA Project makes the entire creation of an album public and collaborative. Fans have a chance to download individual sounds and play around with the actual DNA of the songs j.viewz is creating. But it isn’t just a fun distraction, you can make your own remixes or upload your own files that will ultimately become, in some way, part of the completed album.

  3. Project of the Day—Concerts are cool and all, but concerts in specific outdoor environments are even better. SASSAS (say that ten times fast), otherwise known as the Society for the Activation of Social Space through Art and Sound (also say that ten times fast), wants to throw a free concert series at the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook in Los Angeles. They’ve already thrown concerts at budget motels, other parks and, somehow, a carousel.

  4. Project of the Day—The Oxford American features exceptional long form journalism and essays and is usually one of those things that we end up reading cover to cover without even meaning to. Every year they put together a music issue, last year was Tennessee, this year it’ll be an exploration of the sounds of Texas. Help make that happen.

  5. Project of the Day—Do you like prog rock? What about the band Yes? Probably if you answered yes to either of those questions, and especially if you answered “yes” to Yes (hahahahaha.) you’ll be interested in this project, which features that band’s own Jon Anderson in collaboration with violin virtuoso Jean-Luc Ponty. They, as you can tell by the picture above, are recording an album.
