As soon as you can, please make your way to Alex Ross's blog, www.therestisnoise.com. Though he is still on summer hiatus, he keeps his ear close to the ground. He has a feed, and he provides a list of other music blogs as well. You will also enjoy Greg Sandow's blog, http://www.artsjournal.com/sandow/ .
Looking forward to reading your posts and to seeing you Tuesday!
