Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

Yes, Neutral Milk Hotel, the Louisiana-bred indie act that's been broken up for a decade, has dispatched an e-mail asking for help. And, since I'm something of an Elephant 6 fan boy, I immediately made a mental pledge to assist in any way I could.

Turns out I'll be voting to save some carousel horses in Massachusetts from the proverbial glue factory. The Paragon, an 81-year-old seaside kiddie ride near Boston, is apparently gorgeous and apparently in dire need of the $100,000 they'll get from winning some contest run by Partners in Preservation. I have no idea what the connection is here, but for the band that wrote "Holland, 1945" I'll do it.

Vote here.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
