This is big news, and although it was announced yesterday, it's definitely not an April Fools' joke.
On Friday, April 3rd, Moonalice will become the first band ever to Twitter a concert, in real-time. Here's how it will work:
Moonalice will post their upcoming CD release show and party on April 3rd at Slim's in San Francisco to Twitter. Immediately following each song during the show, Moonalice's sound team will take that song's audio, digitize it, upload it, and "Tweet" about its availabilty—all before the group finishes playing the very next song. This is the first time any artist has broadcast a concert in real-time on the Twitter platform.
If you're in town, one word: GO. You will not be disappointed. You have my word.
Where: Slim's in San Francisco
When: Friday, April 3, 2009, 9pm
Bonus: free posters, giveaways, even cupcakes
