Yesterday, just a day after we mentioned the fact that Tomorrowpeople were still waiting for iTunes to make their music available, Erich Scholz emailed to let us know that Marijuana Beach and Golden Energy are now both for sale on Apple’s online music store. For those keeping score, that makes two down, one to go.
“We're readying Bounced and Renounced -- our first official 'new' album -- and it'll be available on iTunes in a few weeks,” Scholz wrote on the band’s MySpace blog last night.
So it looks like tonight’s Dutch Treats/Tomorrowpeople/Chomsky show is now a tri-purpose affair: bon voyage party for John Freeman, birthday party for Cabe Booth and iTunes release celebration for Tomorrowpeople. As if you needed another reason to go. -Jesse Hughey
