So in our discussion of Prince's declaration of the Internet as being dead, I brought up that while I thought this was a preposterous statement, I did feel that the value of the internet for promotion was perhaps a bit overstated. A reader brought up the question about how people are finding out about new music these days and I thought this would make an excellent open thread.
As for me, I find new stuff mainly through friends with similar tastes (I have a lot of music geek friends, so it helps), through following the "Buyers Who Purchased This Item Also Bought This" links on iTunes, and through Pandora. What about you? What's your favorite way of finding new bands?
