Roundup (Psapp/Zero 7/C86/Halloween Music)

While you're not blogging this afternoon*, you might buy a ticket or two to this Saturday's Zero 7 José González and Sia-enhanced concert. Psapp is opening, and that also adds the prospect of catching a Psapp-made cat during the show. 'Course if you're not within reasonable commuting distance of London's Brixton Academy, not sure why you'd want to spend money on the concert, but life is quite possibly at least partially about choices.

*non-bloggers are not excluded from this statement/post as they will not be blogging this afternoon either.

You might, though, instead choose to spend some time reading, perhaps Nicky Wire's tribute to C86 bands. This Friday and Saturday, in honor of the anniversary of the legendary C86 compilation, a series of concerts, film screenings, and exhibitions will be held at London's Institute of Contemporary Arts.

A new CD86 collection, CD86: 48 Tracks From The Birth Of Indie Pop, compiled by Saint Etienne's Bob Stanley, is out this week. There's of course also Indie MP3, dedicated both to "Keeping C86 Alive!" as well as to new groups.

Instant-messaging remains a reading alternative... sort of... Last week, a new beta of Gaim was released.

Firefox 2.0 was released yesterday, but if you're like me in terms of when you discovered Firefox 2.0 was released, you didn't learn that it's been released until today.

If you're already on the hunt for Halloween music, check out this nifty mix.

Psapp - This Way (available on The Only Thing I Ever Wanted)

Zero 7 - Speed Dial No. 2 (available on When It Falls )
