  2. Chris says:

    what about left to right?

    Thanks for listening.

  3. doc says:

    Good list of 15 songs. and:
    16th song Sir Paul My valentine
    17th song Gotye Somebody that I used to know
    18th song Michael Kiwanuka Home
    With your permission

  4. Chris says:

    OK so here’s my thinking. Sir Paul doesn’t need my help. Gotye is exploding. He doesn’t need much help. Now Kiwanuka…he’s getting huge in the UK. Yeah that one hurt a bit. Probably was thinking I need more upbeat songs this week. So I guess I messed up on that one.

  5. Lou says:

    Great first Month!

  6. Julie says:

    Finally caught a listen. Do I even need to tell you…supreme show?!
    Favorite bites: Charlie Simpson segued into Shins (love Mercer’s voice, btw); Alabama Shakes through First Aid Kit (agree – Shakes’ lead can sing!) and Flying Car Co + Neon Trees.

    FYI – Saw Diego Rivera on Sat. nite. He was, um, errrr, pretty mediocre – saved by a great band. Venue is fine (Highline) and opening acts were pretty decent, so had a fun night but WOULD NOT recommend seeing him, no matter how hot that man is.

  7. Julie says:

    Correction: Diego Garcia NOT Diego Rivera of mural famedom!

  8. Chris says:

    We are right there with you.

  9. Rob K says:

    Great show! A really good mix of songs.

    I could call out at least half of them as my “NEXT favorite song” but I’ll single out First Aid Kit as one I really like a lot.

    I’m not feeling The Shins so much though… is it me, or does it sounds like Styx meets Rush? Very disappointed. Hope the rest of the album is better.

    Oh, and the show’s opening never fails to make me smile!
