In Case You Missed It - The Tripwire Week In Review



Swine flu wasn't nearly as big a topic this week, but it still reared it's ugly head to make sure we didn't forget about it. Still, we were able to step outside to speak with M. Ward, Antlers and Local Natives as well as release some exclusive music. But probably the biggest highlight was getting to see David Byrne, Sharon Jones, Feist, Bon Iver, The National, Dirty Projectors, My Brightest Diamond and more at the Dark Was The Night event. To see what else you may have missed, here's the Tripwire week in review.
