Avatar Wed. 6/8/16 9:59pm Joe B:

it was only a matter of time before they wised up and played a better show!

ken, good one!
Avatar Wed. 6/8/16 9:59pm Cliff:

GO!GO!7188 is another band name that references phone technology, if you type 557188 into a Japanese phone it spells out the last name of the manager of the club they first played in ("go" is one of the ways you say 5 in Japanese)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/8/16 10:02pm Folsom:

Sound is very good, congrats to Mike Sin. Who was the commenter that always wanted the engineer to be in the playlist/mentioned on the air? Nice to see it regularly documented.
Avatar Wed. 6/8/16 10:03pm Cliff:

Yeah, thanks Mike Sin, even through my little Macbook speakers this is sounding awesome!

Tuned in late but enjoying this set.
Avatar Wed. 6/8/16 10:32pm JakeGould:

You know this track from The Above sounds a lot like My Bloody Valentine’s “Soon” if you hear it from another room.
Avatar Wed. 6/8/16 10:34pm geezerette:

Love this Above sound.

as they say, if a band records a live set in a forest and nobody hears it, etc. etc.
Avatar Wed. 6/8/16 10:56pm geezerette:

San Diego is definitely a place to escape from.
Avatar Wed. 6/8/16 11:03pm coelacanth:

i'll have to come back for the first live set; but mrs. magician was excellent...good harmonies, raw guitar...sort of an early stiffs sound.
Avatar Wed. 6/8/16 11:05pm BadGuyZero:

Great live sets tonight. Thank you, Evan and Mike!
Avatar Wed. 6/8/16 11:06pm JakeGould:

@efd: “…and nobody hears it, etc. etc.” Some record exec will still figure out a way to squeeze a live performance fee out of them. *rimshot*

if a comedian tells a bad joke in the forest, and nobody is around to react to it, does the rimshot mean anything?
  Wed. 6/8/16 11:10pm Ice in Bklyn:

Man I love Crimson Sweet
Another Saturday Night too.
Pretty sure the last time I ran into Polly and Robert was at the Cheaterslicks show at Union Pool a few years ago.
  Wed. 6/8/16 11:18pm ice in Bklyn:

Good live sets tonite. Big thanks to everyone involved, been looking forward to this show all week.

I am laughing now just thinking about Chris M.'s show tomorrow. What a joker!

No Bowie this week?

  Wed. 6/8/16 11:57pm jt:

that song"everybody looks not everybody finds" has a pleasant 'flying nun records ' vibe to it...
