Nitetrotter.com has been on a brief summer hiatus. We are returning soon with a new website, and many new sessions.
There has been a lot of talk all of 2010 in the Quad City music community about Daytrotter and Nitetrotter. Lets take the time to clear some facts up.
Nitetrotter is not anti Daytrotter. We see ourselves as a more locally oriented free format diy reaction to Daytrotter. Our name is indeed a play on their name but Nitetrotter is not anti Daytrotter and does not wish any disrespect on their fans or employees. We just saw what we were doing as seizing the means of production and giving credit where credit was due.
Daytrotter has done nothing but try to blatantly blacklist those formally or non-formally associated with Nitetrotter. We find this to be wrong and counterproductive. Blacklist those individuals who may have said mean things about you but please not all our friends and family.
We will be involved with the opening of a venue with recording studio in East Moline again. It is called the Nite-Castle and is located in the building owned by the Human Aftertaste. The Lazer Warehouse will also be doing shows again, this time with a different name. So Weirdtown is not dead!
We plan on recording more bands in both East Moline and Chicago. We also are trying to figure out where we will host Nitetrotter Fest in 2011. It is going to be in Chicago but we plan on doing an East Moline version as well.
We look forward to posting a lot of new sessions for all our Nite-Heads!
