This Must Be The Place

6/15 Show
Music is My Girlfriend went well this week. Lots of new stuff, some older tracks, previewed upcoming concerts, no bad requests or hate calls, etc. The show was generally mellower than most MIMGs with mostly acoustic stuff taking the place of the danceable electro I sometimes play at the end of the show.

This Thursday the 18th, KBUT is presenting the classic Talking Heads concert film "Stop Making Sense" at the Majestic Theatre. Thus, you may notice a couple live Talking Heads tracks in today's playlist.

Hey! Guess what! Links are back. Dara Puspita kicks ass. Also, Peter Bjorn & John's "Nothing to Worry About" is 320x better without the screaming kids chorus.

Frazzled Rock

6/1 Show
I rolled into Crested Butte about twenty minutes before my show on Monday feeling somewhat discombobulated. Although I spent most of the drive from Denver to CB listening to new music in preparation for the show, I still felt clueless. As such, you may recognize many of the below tunes from previous weeks.

I got to see Menomena, Handsome Furs, White Rabbits and Dent May & Magnificent Ukulele while in Chicago last week. Order of preference? (first to last): Handsome Furs, Dent May, Menomena, White Rabbits. All four were enjoyable though.
