Use your words, people.


Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.


Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)

New to SJCPLS: Kimbra's The Golden Echo.

Her second album is a modern pop effort that is ambitious, sophisticated, and complex. It also includes appearances from Muse’s Matt Bellamy, rapper Flying Lotus, and singer John Legend.

Justin Townes Earle's fifth album, Single Mothers, releases next week and we'll have it. In the meantime, here's a tune from the new album, Time Shows Fools. He's coming to St. Augustine in November.

We love introducing patrons to new-to-us music and bands. A new find: The Neighbourhood. Check out I Love You and let us know what you think.
