Thanks to the totally cool people at the B-Side Lounge for having me last night.  Sure, we both would have liked a few more bodies in the room last night, but any night with good music, good people, and good brews is a fine night by me.

About this playlist: In many ways, Sunday night’s set was a vintage one for me — It skipped around five decades of rock music with a focus on classic punk and included a healthy dose of modern cuts, too. However, it occurred to me on my way back to the West Side in the early AM hours, that I never got around to my usual two or three suites of old skool hip-hop and electro. For as much as I love my Rock ‘N’ Roll records, I also enjoy those short excursions in other genres to highlight the connectedness between different styles and time periods. The beats played by Patrick Carney of the Black Keys aren’t so different than the beats you hear on older hip-hop records. Artists like Malcolm McLaren, Blondie, and The Clash were just as excited about the possibilities of hip-hop as those in the New York boroughs. Unfortunately, the last time I went shopping for new old skool records, I ended up with a bunch of old Sub Pop singles. I say that like it’s a bad thing. Next time…
