I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. How many of you hit the stores at the crack of dawn for some Black Friday fun? Any big scores you want to tell us about? Any amazing music deals going on today for Cyber Monday that we should know about? If so, let us know below!
It’s that time again when we share with you some of the most important music links on the web EVER (for now). I love these posts because it gives us a chance to share with you some of the sites that WE like to frequent for good music, stories, and music news. There are so many wonderful music sites out there, and we like to touch on some new ones each time we put together a Most Important Music Links on the Web EVER (for now) post. Hopefully we’ll turn you on to a few sites and sounds you hadn’t heard about before.
Cover Me – Cover Me has an extensive list of the hottest and most interesting holiday albums you can grab this season.
The 6149 – Our friend Judd at The 6149 has another excelled Rock & Roll Three Way post up on the site featuring The Doors, The Band, and Big Joe Turner. It also includes a bonus cut from Cedric Burnside & Lightnin’ Malcom. Dig it.
Slicing Up Eyeballs – Slicing Up Eyeballs will debut a brand new weekly radio show on Strangeways Radio tomorrow. The show, like the site, will spotlight the classic indie, post-punk, synthpop and alternative music of the college-rock era. More details and links to listen are included in the post.

Jeff Vrabel – Speaking of Springsteen, this “OK, Self, you’re talking to Bruce Springsteen” post by friend of the site, Jeff Vrabel, is a must-read… and that’s all I’m going to say about that.
Popdose – Popdose is back with its 15th Popdose Podcast, where the topic is Reunions… the reunions they remember the most, the bands they still want to see reunite, and the bands that should have stayed broken up. These guys are always entertaining.
