I recently spotted a rare MySpace bulletin from Nathaniel Rateliff, aka the Wheel, about a show he was doing in Portland. Now, I know Nate doesn't exactly need my help to draw a crowd, but I'm such a strong supporter of his work that I wanted to pimp him a little bit. Additionally, some of my favorite music publicists from XO Publicity are in Portland, so I felt the need to clue them in. I immediately shot an email over to Kaytea and Margaret to tell them that they had to go check out the show, and then report back with their thoughts.
After the show, I received an enthusiastic email from Margaret. "Man, you were sooo right," she said. "Nathaniel has an amazing, powerful voice and his songs are excellent." This made me feel like a proud papa - and also a bit like a pimp, though in the literal sense, not the mack daddy one.
