Mayer Hawthorne (and every other artist) is Greater than Nickelback

If you tuned in to last week's show, you may have tapped your feet to this Mayer Hawthorne track. And if so, it may be of interest to you that Mayer Hawthorne, a Detroit native, is now campaigning to replace Nickelback as the halftime performer of the Lions/Packers Thanksgiving Day game.

Regardless of who wins (go Packers!) I'd say it's an across-the-board agreement that Nickelback needs the boot. Stat.

Original article here.

Oh hey, CMJ photos!

Well, a handful of them, anyway. The Violet Femme may or may not have used her camera only one day out of the past four...but that still counts for something, right? Long story short, she and The David Rind Experience were waaay too busy seeing shows, hanging out with fellow college radio geeks (what up, WWSU and Osprey Radio!) and giving their livers a workout to pose for photo ops.

The shows that did merit camera use are all below!

Guineafowl rockin' the lower level of Piano's 

Camping out on the floor for Now, Now 

Cosmo Jarvis upstairs at Piano's
Tiny guitar!

Oh haaay, John Steel Singers

Neon Indian 
Neon people 
So. Much. Neon.


Mega Major Humongous Thanks

It's a bit battle-worn (a weekend of being carted from bar to bar will do that), but here's what we brought home from CMJ. Our little radio show is makin' it big.

This poster was the cause of a lot of tears (happy ones), about a thousand hugs and innumerable blubbered thanks. Thanks to our promoters, listeners, fellow radio cohorts and friends. This is just. too. much.

Catch you tomorrow night, friends, 8-11pm EST as usual. Stream us live from anywhere. Cool shit coming up includes an interview with the Hush Now, plus a ton of rawkin' photos a la Cosmo Jarvis, Now Now, Fallujah, The John Steel Singers, Guineafowl and Neon Indian. It's been one helluva weekend.


Playlist 10.16.2011

This week on the Campus Buzz: The Violet Femme broadcasts without headphones (her rabbit chewed through them--sob), Angie and Emily save the show by providing great tunes AND a laptop charger, and everyone gets excited for CMJ. Aaaaaaaaaah yeah, kids!!

PS -- Are you attending CMJ? We would love you forever if you helped promote the New York area's only indie/alternative show! The Violet Femme has been nominated for Specialty Music Director of the Year in this year's College Radio Awards. She's crossing her fingers for a win, because that might actually mean more weekly listeners. So if you're in the area on October 20th, be sure to stop by for College Day and cast your vote. If you do, we'll play your requests forever and ever.

Funnier Than Our Playlists

It's not a Sunday. We're not on the radio right now. So why the post?
Because this was just too damn funny NOT to immediately share.


Radiohead + high carb food = internet gold.

See you Sunday night, folks. Keep an ear out for new Ben Folds, Sarah Jaffe, Vanish Valley and Kevin Devin's rendition of Nirvana's Nevermind. The guy did a cover of the album in its entirety and then put it up on his website for free download. What a champ.
