Touring the world one pair of headphones at a time...

Dec 31, 2018

Here's all the artists I saw live this year. I had to do a few sudden cuts to get it to fit into the amount of space I had left for the month, so excuse any weird hard cuts, and there may still be a couple of mentions about a song that I didn't play this week. I'll explain that all in the next show, and I'll open with that song.

Lots of great musicians this year. Listen, go see them live, buy their albums and their merch. Hopefully you'll find some new things to love.
