For reasons I can no longer recall, I talked myself out of buying tickets to My Chem when they played here in August, and I'm still mad at myself about it!
In other news, I've been putting together a Halloween playlist on Spotify and searched back through the archived Music threads to find the track listings for David's Halloween mixes, and found some other gems too. But I can't find a track listing for the Louche Crooners mix! David, do you still have that handy somewhere?

It's very sad. She and Sparhawk met in elementary school.
Fleetwood Mac's Christine McVie died at 79. It's a shame, but she sure wrote some good music.
Putting on a very escapist hat and unlurking in very, very, very long shot question: any chance someone here is planning to attend the Lost Weekend Records 20th anniversary show in Columbus, OH? Asking for a Scrawl fan. Who is me.

I am so stunned and saddened by Sinead O'Connor's death. She was brilliant & forthright and had such a lovely voice.
Yeah, it’s a hard one, Sumi. For sure.
I'm going to see The Warning [link] in Chicago later this month. I've already purchased a pair of earplugs designed for concerts. Anything else a middle-aged person venturing back into live music after over two decades should be aware of?
