Setlist – 05/05/2008

posted on May 9, 2008 at 4:21 am · filed under Setlists

At some point, after I get through all this stuff I pulled at random from the New Music shelves, I’ll be playing a bunch of stuff off the first four or five Mekons albums. I just discovered them, thanks to a CD by the (related project) Waco Bros. that the station tossed, and I’m a big fan. You probably will be too, after tonight. 🙂

But first, I scoured the New Rock shelves for stuff that might be about booze and I found a decent number of tracks to play. I suspect some of them will be garbage, but we’ll have a lot of fun finding out, right? Right? Glad you’re with me. Let’s go!
