When did people decide that James Franco was an in-demand author? Are people lining up to read a book by a guy who teaches a college course about himself?
Amazon has set the book industry on edge by starting a publishing unit that has snagged authors like Timothy Ferriss and James Franco.
If the publishing industry thinks it needs Franco to secure its future, I don’t know if the world needs the publishing industry anymore.

And to whet your appetite, here’s another video of us shaking it up live.

I’d like to thank everyone who came out on Friday for the double-bill show that Confab played with Upstate Escape. Both bands had a great time and escaped the show with minimal injuries. We even pulled out some new material, which we believe went well (and even if it didn’t, we would say it did), and we hope you enjoyed it. We’ll look forward to seeing you at the next show, which we plan on being the hugest show ever in the history of the world.
Confab will be playing a show with its step-brother band, Upstate Escape. And to make things even spicier, this show will double as birthday extravaganza for Adam, who is turning 17*!
What: Playing a double-bill with the very awesome Upstate Escape ($8 cover)

It’s gonna be a barn-burner of a Friday night, and we couldn’t think of a better way to spend it than with all of our closest friends, as well as the random strangers who will be at Fontana’s. We’ll be playing some new stuff and some new new stuff, so be sure to swing by and hear what we’re cooking on the Confab hot plate.
