[Last Week’s Playlist] March 2017’s NEW MUSIC NIGHT at ONCE Somerville

Posted on March 23, 2017 at 12:23 pm | No Comments

Did you skip New Music Night at ONCE in Somerville last week? No worries, I’ve got you covered. While you may have blown your chance to win one of several pairs of free show tickets I handed out during the two-hour DJ set, and missed out on some truly tasty tacos, at least you can check out the playlist here. Small consolation, I know. Some of the songs are streamable below, others you’ll have to hunt down (maybe on my monthly playlists?), and a few include a little extra info.

Join us next month at ONCE on Monday, April 24th and avoid any potential lingering regret.
