I know, not SF but still cool. The band, They Might Be Giants, has opened their own online music store. The currently have two CDs for sale, at $10/CD, or songs at $1/song. Presumably, all this money goes directly to TMBG. I wonder why more bands don’t do this? I realize many bands’ music may be owned by someone else, but I believe that there will be time where bands say ‘screw you recording companies!’ and do this direct to public thing on their own. The first big band/singer to this will make a killing.
