[Last Night’s Playlist] New Music Night II at River Gods

Posted on August 14, 2011 at 11:33 am | 1 Comment

The second installment of what Jay Clicky Clicky and I have dubbed “New Music Night” took place this past Thursday at beloved bar River Gods in Cambridge, MA – which means it’s officially a thing. A thing that is now officially more than a one-off experiment. A thing that will happen again. Every couple of months in fact. Let’s hear it for regularity (if not for naming originality). Huzzah!

If June’s first edition of NMN was mostly my “faves of the year so far” set, then Thursday night was my summer soundtrack. Here’s a list of what I played, with some info on each track, and where you can hear it. Boston-area artists get a star *, y’know, just because. And look, it’s a Spotify playlist, too. Sweet, sweet technology. For Jay’s list o’ songs, go here. Thanks to all who came out to hear us spin. We’ll be back in the booth in a couple months…

Again, for a look at Jay’s two excellent sets of songs, head here.

(For the record, it takes way longer to pull together this post than it does to actually play all the songs listed above. That seems somehow… wrong. I am a slave to detail.)
