The Bifrost Arts conference, The Cry Of The Poor: A Conference About Worship, Community, & Mercy, is coming up in April in Philadelphia. To get your attention (and this should do it) they are giving away their excellent worship album, Come O Spirit. IT ENDS TODAY. Please grab it while you can. I think you'll love it. I do. And consider going to the conference. Early registration discounts end this week!

Last year I fell in love with Delta Spirit (& other bands) for one reason alone: Daytrotter's Barnstormer tour. This year there are 5 stops on the Daytrotter Barnstormer IV Tour from April 26-30. Two are in Illinois, with other stops in Minnesota, Michigan, & Iowa. Bands include Sondre Lerche, Guards, The Romany Rye, Keegan Dewitt, and Hellogoodbye, though the line-up isn't exactly the same at each location.
Every stop has at least four bands and each stop is only $15. Can't recommend this enough. Unique concerts for up and coming bands.
