Content Passafire Posts
I think it is important to note the live albums
and the remixes that Passafire makes.
I think the remixes, which some are free
downloads show that Passafire is open to
experimentation they are a rock reggae and
dub band after all shows a relation to remix
read write culture.
The live albums shows a sample of how
Passafire plays live very different than the
album recordings for of an experience that is
different then listening to the same recording
online versus in person.
Extra Content Passafire makes
Passafire is on very social media that I
can think of so they have diffinately made
sure they are inhabiting every possible
social media space that they can be in.
They seam to manage their social media
content and post worthwhile content
worth following online.
