    Iceland Airwaves is great, and I am glad KEXP is a part, but if you have never checked out Aldrei for eg sudur in Isajfordur, you are really missing something. I took my family in 2008, and it was one of the greatest musical and cultural experiences of our lives. Check it out: http://aldrei.is/

    Hey, what happens if we’re Amplifiers Club members, donating monthly? We’re already giving KEXP >$35 a year. How do we enter without sending a postcard? Or do we have to make an additional gift?

    If we get in production on time, we’d sure like to donate some nICE mugs to the Iceland Airwaves Festival.
