This is a music blog that will feature anything and everything having to do with good music. The blog name “30 Days Out” is taken from the title of a Bruce Springsteen song that was the b-side to the “Leap of Faith” single in 1993. You will see and hear everything from Bruce to Elvis Costello to Ozzy Osbourne showing his behind at OzzFest (don’t ask) to a guy at SXSW 2007 claiming he was “question mark” from  “? and the Mysterians.” 

My name is George Kovacik and my partner on this blog is Denny Angelle. Denny used to write about music for the Associated Press (AP) and other high profile publications. At one time I wrote and produced a daily music segment for KTRH Newsradio 740AM in Houston, so we both know a little about music.

All music posted on this site is for review purposes only … if you like what you hear, please go out and purchase stuff from these artists.  We post music only to give you a taste of the album or artist we’re writing about.  In most cases, the music is removed after two weeks or so – sooner if nobody clicks on to listen.  We do not profit from this blog; we do it because we love the music.  We understand that some people consider posting their copyrighted music is an infringement at best and a ripoff at worst; however we always add a link to the artist’s official website or record label site so interested readers can purchase the music.  We do not mind promoting any artist.  On the other hand if you are a copyright owner and wish to have a link removed please contact us and we will happily do so.

  1. Hi George and Denny!!!


  2. This blog is great. You two are funny, and should really consider writing for a living. And yes, I should be working.

    Hey Denny, linked you on my blog too and just posted one about that Kiss show we saw back in about 1979 in the CajunDome. Course I had to mention you. I’m finally exploring deeper in 30daysout and spreading the word too. Hope to be in H-town soon to hoist one with you.

    I have started an online sportswear business and would like to have you hyperlink to my site, http://www.sublimesportswear.com, with a two-word text link of “Polo Shirts”. For your effort you may select one of the polo shirts on my site and I will send it to you at no cost. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

    Thanks again,

  5. I’d like to send along music and news for 30 days out, what is the best email to send you the artists I work with?

  6. 30daysout Says:

    Send it right here! We approve all e-mails before they’re posted, so if you have some good stuff we’ll get back to you and do it up right.

  7. Hi guys, we love the site! How do we contact you privately? I do not see a contact page. Thanks!

  8. Just found you today. Terrific stuff, particularly on the Loss Leaders–I’ve got a bunch of these taking up space on my shelves. Keep up the good work.

    Hi gentlemen…what’s up Denny! Who writes what? I wanna read Denny’s stuff, how do I find it? I don’t see bylines. PLease help.

  11. Dave Marshall Says:

    I really enjoyed ‘This Is The Story – The Jean Terrell Years’ because it was put together with care and thought (though sadly lacking written contribution from the lady herself) with photographs I’d never seen before and brilliant tracks. I’m anxious to get Volume 2 ‘The Scherrie Payne Years’ but just read that it’s called ‘The Last Sessions’ – what happened to Scherrie Payne here? Can’t be true that Mary Wilson veto’d the title? REALLY? But then, the woman is probably still seething from not being on the (great) Return To Love tour back in 2000. Someday We’ll Be Together? Not in our lifetimes.

  12. Hi Denny and George, how are you guys? My name is Mike Maimone, writing for my band Mutts.
