Sizzlin' Tunes for the Heat of Summer

Sizzlin' Tunes for the Heat of Summer

June 25th, 2009 by Sean Phipps in Blogssceniccitysounds

This may be my favorite mix of music to date. I have for you this week: the Ventures, Nite Jewel, Ganglians, The Oh Sees, Disrupt, St. Vincent and a few more. Most of these tracks share a common theme of being completely infectious earworms. I included the Ventures as a tribute to the group's lead guitarist, Bob Bogle, who passed away a few weeks ago. Enjoy the mix and let me know what you think.

Listen here.

Some Shows:

It's a weekend of cover bands at Rhythm & Brews: 80z-Enuff will perform their versions of classic 80's rock n' roll on Friday night. On Saturday, Midnight Riders - a tribute to the Allman Brothers-- will perform.

Reed Thomas Lawrence will perform at Nightfall tonight at 8pm. The Miller stage is located in Miller Plaza downtown.

The Unsatisfied & Bring the Witch are at JJ's Bohemia tonight. This will be a rocking good show. Tickets are $5.

Have a safe weekend.
