As it's summer and not much is happening I think it's time to give the Firefly mailing list a plug. This is the (un)official list for gossiping about Mark Eitzel and the American Music Club. I have been on there (on and off) for about 10 years and I can say that they are a friendly bunch. Danny and Tim have been known to put in appearances as well as Chris from the bands management. Has Mark ever signed up? Possibly.
As well as AMC related chat, they are a good source for whatever is hip and happening in the Americana field. Recently things have been getting a bit excitable over the Bon Iver and Fleet Foxes albums. It is a it quiet at the moment but sign up and say hello.
