Last Night’s Playlist: Tourfilter DJ Night (Upcoming Boston-area shows)

Posted on August 20, 2010 at 10:16 am | No Comments

After a break of too many months, it felt better than ever to be back up in the DJ booth at River Gods in Cambridge, MA for another Tourfilter Night. I needed it. As usual, the four-hour slot was split with TF main-man Chris Marstall, and we stuck to sets made up exclusively of songs by bands playing the Boston area soon.

Here’s a run-down of my playlist from last night, including dates and venues for the upcoming shows. There are some ridiculously good gigs on deck – in fact, I can’t remember a touring season quite so strong.
