Some Songs I Have Enjoyed

12/15 Show
Following is a playlist full of some of my favorite tracks of the past year. I tried to exclude songs that will be featured during my albums of the year countdown, so don't read this as any sort of year-end best songs of the year list. At the same time, some of these may sneak into my top 20 albums list, so be prepared to hear them again over the next couple weeks.

Next Monday I'll start my albums of the year countdown, probably featuring #'s 20-11. The top ten will then fill my show on December 29th. I have a lot of records to re-listen to before Monday.

Dude, one piece of advice...go see the Rev when he gets into town.

2/30 - Flogging Molly w/ Rev. Peyton's Big Damn Band - Fillmore

I knew them back in Indy and I'm going to catch them out here in San Francisco in January.
