[NMN Playlist] New Music Night XII at River Gods

Posted on October 26, 2013 at 9:29 pm | No Comments

The 12th edition of New Music Night is in the books. As ever, four hours of all-new music, split between myself and Mr. Jay of the Clicky Clicky. The Sox may have lost, but at least we provided the River Gods crowd with a solid soundtrack to their disappointment. Win some, lose some.

My meticulously-crafted playlists are below, and you can head over to Jay’s place for his. Join us again in one short month as we bring episode #13 to the RG’s DJ booth: November 21st, a week before you the giving of thanks. Mark it down.
