Unless you live in a river cave off the Mississippi River, you know Lady Gaga was in Saint Paul this week.
I am completely amazied how many marketing professionals I know who are going gaga for a musical act manufactured by marketers to sell records and concert tickets.
Even the Turf Club stop-by and photobooth photos reeks of marketer manipulation.
It’s no coincidence the Star Tribune, City Pages and Perez Hilton are drooling over it. On her next tour stop, what do you bet Gaga stops at the “cool” club there, too?
Pinch yourselves people. It’s all designed and architected to make you love . . . → Read More: Gaga for Gaga? Give me a break

Saint Paul band Gospel Gossip sent me their full length this week. Huzzah.
Dreamland features big, loud guitars with sloppy sustain building a junior wall of sound — a lush reverb mess serving as a backdrop for Sarah Nienaber’s pensive, sometimes entitled lyrics.
Gospel Gossip “Nashville” (mp3)
Don’t get me wrong — I really like this. But it wasn’t until Track 4 when I finally heard Nienaber burst out the expressive emotion I encountered in their live shows.
