Announcement: Birthday Countdown


you can probably tell that I'm a bit excited.
Today I finally get to announce what 'that project' I was (non stop) talking about is.

So the project is called "Birthday Countdown".
This very blog is turning two years old on February 28th and because birthdays always take soo long to come up, we are going to celebrate.
No, not just on Feb 28th, but through out the entire month!

Starting February 1st you are going to see one band/one solo artist a day performing a song only for house in the sand's birthday.
So you can kind of think of this as a late advent calendar - one goodie a day.

You can not imagine how excited I am about this.

There is so much passion and love in this project, not only from my side but also from the artists. I could not have found anyone more passionate, more talented and more reliable to work with, it was such a pleasure and honour.
 I'm not going to tell you who took part yet, just come over and find it out yourself.
(But I can proudly tell you that you are going to see some familiar faces as well as some new ones.)

This means I wont post any reviews, interviews, etc because the videos are in the spotlight this month. It's a little party and you're most welcome to join.

For all of you who'd like to win something: I came up with a little giveaway but this time you have to do some "work."
Each day I'll post a video there's also going to be a write up about the artist/band performing. I am going to hide one letter in each post. If we think mathematically this means there'll be 28 letters and they are going to form a sentence/phrase.

Collect all letters and send the final word/phrase to on February 28th.
Deadline to send an email is March 2nd 5pm EST.

I am randomly going to pick a winner. Oh and you're going to win a personalized house in the sand package.
If you have any questions about this - leave a comment or tweet or facebook me.

All videos are going to be uploaded to my Youtube channel - don't miss anything by subscribing.
Of course the main party is on the blog so I suggest you come over to read a few lines about the artists.

I hope you are going to enjoy this month of live music!
Feel free to tell me what you think, to share this or support this project however you'd like.
