- Wolf's Head and Vixen: This is a border morris side in the U.K. that's decided to embrace its collective inner Goth.
- Etiquette Hell's Feel Good Friday: It's always good to see Perpetual e-Motion get mentioned in places that aren't strictly devoted to contra.
- The Dubstep Blog: Just what it says; expanding one's musical horizons is fun!
- A Young Person's Thoughts on the Americana Movement: A lot of what Alex Hatch writes here resonates with some of what I've heard in the contra community as we talk about where we go from here.
- Do You Really Listen?: A reflection on the people behind the music; this is from the Celtic music scene, but I think some of it applies to the contra scene too.
- Why We Contra Dance Video: Recently featured on the CDSS blog; it seems like a neat way to market the dance form we all know and love.
- On Social Dancing and the Creeps that Spoil It for Everyone: This is slightly older than the other links (from this past spring) and I thought this was an interesting post; the blogger dances swing and hip-hop out in California, but I think some of the attitudes do inform the contra dance movement as well. I feel fortunate that so far I haven't had the displeasure of having this particular unfortunate (and unwanted) bit of the club experience come over to the alt-contra scene, and I really hope I can still say that down the line.
