Constant-Comment-Pro-Sound-News-Twitter-Feed-for-February-2011

By Clive Young. You can tell a lot about a month by looking back at the tweets you posted. Clearly PSN kicked things off with a bang on Feburary 1, with what even we’ll admit was a surprising turn of events. During the other 27 days, we covered a slew of shows, checked out the METAlliance event in New York City, stumbled across a preponderance of Beatles-related recording stories, and dug a rendition of Steve Reich’s Clapping Music created out of a clip of Angie Dickinson smacking Lee Marvin around. Most of PSN's tweets are our daily headlines on this website, but this list collects everything else we posted. The best way to enjoy our Twitter feed, of course, is to follow us at www.twitter.com/prosoundnews.
