Hey, neat! We have a blog again!

Yes, it's true, I graduated from college. Whether or not taking such a long reprieve from blogging, however, is still debatable. Nonetheless, JHaJ returns, less than three weeks away from the tear-your-face-off awesomeness that will be ELFest.!

On that note, we regret to inform you, dear readers, that The Hard Lessons are no longer on the ELFest bill. Straight from the Augie’s mouth:
“We have to be back in NYC to meet with some folks and rock a show during ELFest. I'm definitely bummed since it looked like we were going to be in town.”

But do buck up, because there are still 24 amazing acts confirmed for our little backyard gathering (The Next Door Neighbors have also had to cancel due to a travel-related conflict).

So while you wait in giddy anticipation for ELFest, you can check out our two new — and yet-unnamed — features. The first is a weekly recording feature, with which Annie and I will keep all of y’all informed on the releases from Michigan artists that are floating around out there for purchasing and loving. We’ll listen to one CD (or LP or seven-inch or mp3 or whatevs) a week, and tell you all about it on the Internet. Not a record review, per se, more like a record impression.

The second is something we’ll need your help for. We want you to write to us — at justhaircutsandjackets@yahoo.com — about the first time you heard your favorite Michigan songs. We’ll take contributions from fans and bands alike, and of course we’ll be writing about our experiences from time to time, too.

Finally, we’ll need your help again in naming these new additions to our bloggy repertoire. Think of a song title or lyric from a local band that fits the feature, and send it to us in an e-mail with the subject line “Naming Your Features.” If your suggestion is chosen, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that your idea is forever ingrained on the Information Superhighway.

That’s all for now, kiddos. Hope to see you all very soon!
-Erik
