This week, it's a theme week, in which no song clocks in under 7 minutes. That means a prog epic, a rock epic, a metal epic, a funk epic, a techno epic, an indie epic and a Madchester epic. It's epics all around! Only 7 songs in total this week, and yet, it's still a big show!

For the December scene show every year, I'm going to do a overview of all the concerts I saw over the past year, talk a little bit about the artists and the shows (and sometimes the venues) and then play some of their stuff for you. This means you'll occasionally get blocks of comedy mixed in with your music, and the genre hopping will be even more all over the place than usual, as the show is put together in chronological order of when I saw people. Should be fun!

I was fairly sick during the recording of this show, so my voice is scratchy, and I tend not to talk as much as I usually do, but there's still good music to be had, even when I'm not feeling well. We dabble in funk, Japanese noiserock, the visual kei scene, Israeli pop and more. Enjoy!
