Bradley’s Almanac

[Last NMNight’s Playlist] The inaugural NEW MUSIC NIGHT at the ONCE Lounge (and announcing the next one on Thursday, October 29th!)

Posted on October 12, 2015 at 10:43 am | No Comments

It’s ok, you can call it a comeback. After a bit of a break, I returned to the DJ table for my monthly NEW MUSIC NIGHT, setting up at the increasingly-awesome ONCE Lounge on Highland Ave. in Somerville. I’d been spending so many evenings there that I figured I might as well share some new music while I’m at it. Lucky for me, they graciously agreed, and now it’s a thing!

Crowd-wise, I didn’t know what to expect from the first installment, which took place a few weeks back. Turns out I needn’t have worried. A mix of friends, Almanac readers, and discriminating diners filled the tables (and hit the pool tables) during my two hour set while I randomly gave out tickets to upcoming shows (including Caspian, Yo La Tengo, Low, Mercury Rev, Pile & Krill, Destroyer, Mike Krol, & Telekinesis) and debuted brand new songs from both Eldridge Rodriguez (new album out now!) and Ghost Box Orchestra (new EP out soon!). Honored to have done so. You can check out the full playlist below, along with links on where to listen & buy. Many of the tracks below can also be found on my latest ‘Nac Tracks playlist.

The second edition of New Music Night @ ONCE will take place on Thursday, October 29th, again from 7:30-9:30pm. Scroll down for the spiffy new poster design by Nicole Anguish of Daykamp Creative (and go to the Daykamp Poster & Photo Show at the Sinclair on 11/25!). I’m lining up more giveaways and debuts now, but I’m especially psyched to be premiering a song or two from Ted Billings (ex-Age Rings) new project, Philosophical Zombie.
