What is a Daytrotter?

This morning in our gmail's inbox we got an message asking us to check out Daytrotter. I had no idea what that hell that was. However, upon checking out the link I would highly recommend that you all check out the site as well. Daytrotter is a site that has been started by Sean Moeller, the music critic for the Quad-City Times, and a writer for DIW, Rockpile, Filter, Punk Planet, Playback St. Louis, The Salt Lake Weekly, and many other publications. Daytrotter is an online music magazine with reviews, interviews and show reviews like other similiar sites do.

Where they differ is that each week they feature a band that has stopped by their studios in the Quad-Cities to do an instudio performance. In these sessions the bands peform unreleased, older, or alternate versions of their songs, then they are posted for download.
Some of the bands they have featured so far are: Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, Casiotone For The Painfully Alone, Impossible Shapes, Jason Forrest, among others. In the next few weeks they have some particularly exciting sessions planned with: Ben Kweller, The Smoking Popes, Tape 'N Tapes, Two Gallants, and Casey Dienel.
