And last but not least... Johnathan Deamer talks a bit about and with up and coming LA band Giant Drag in: Giant Drag interview: "My God, we're so gay!"

Thanks to everyone who submitted work to the carnival this month, these articles were all quite interesting reads including some of the most interesting I've seen in this carnival thus far.

If you submitted your work to the carnival, but it wasn't chosen, don't fret. There aren't a lot of standards to be included except to be directly about music, but I don't publish blatant advertisements, personal attacks on artists, celebrity gossip, things off topic or things I can't read (sorry, english only). Also, I'd appreciate if you only submit some of your best works, not short, few word posts and try to keep multiple submissions within reason, meaning you can send two or three articles at most, but not like six... if you Spam the carnival with entries or with articles off topic you won't be included.

I still appreciate your contribution even if I didn't choose to include it and hope you won't hesitate to submit new work to next month's carnival.

The next carnival will run on July 1st 2007. More information, the carnival archives and a link to the submission form can be found here:
