Immigration Reform By Smart Growth

Smart Growth is a "planning and transportation theory that concentrates growth in the center of a city to avoid urban sprawl; and advocates compact, transit-oriented, walkable, bicycle-friendly land use, including neighborhood schools, streets that work for everyone, mixed-use development with a range of housing choices."

Smart Growth is also Dennis Bowen of Double Dagger. He is a man who really likes The Police and maybe a little Big Beat.

Downloadable Boots... Authorized Live Recordings (thanks to the original taper):
"Immigration Reform" ( mp3) (source: aural states)
"Third World Stereo" ( mp3) (source: beatbots)

Watch an excellent live vid of Double Dagger: "Luxury Condos For The Poor (Live @ Whartscape 2007)" (youtube).

Smart Growth is cool as shit...I love "Too Fucking Cool."

For the record, the music you put up isn't a boot or bootleg...bootlegs are recordings made without the band's permission. I only tape bands that allow it, so no bootlegs involved.
