Congrats to the Web site Fuse for the clever idea of celebrating July Fourth by setting up musical slapfights between acts from each of the 50 states. Did you know that Idaho has bands? It’s true!

The fine folks at Fuse forgot about D.C., though, denying locals the opportunity to choose between, say, Duke Ellington and Wale. Picking up the slack, the Boston Phoenix is attempting to start a Fugazi-vs.-Marvin Gaye-vs. Orthrelm battle. (Via)
