...on Setlist.

They were this week's special in-studio guests. They brought a mini grand piano, an acoustic guitar that was turned into an electric guitar with some tape and magic, and they also brought glue and glitter and other art supplies.

They also played a couple songs, and chatted about plans for 2008. They also made an original hand turkey (usually $2 via their website!) and brought a "Grand Champion" ribbon to give to a special Setlist winner.

Click here to listen (for absolutely free without having to download anything at all).

And here's a video of them playing "in studio" (really, Nancy's office). The song is called "I Want to Cry."

You may have noticed that this week's music section is devoted to local hiphop, with the central focus being The Program, the five-day hiphop festival curated by Blue Scholars, who will perform every night. To celebrate, we've devoted Setlist, our weekly local music podcast, to local hiphop as well.

Music editor Jonathan Zwickel (click for pic) guest stars to talk about the project! And we play six songs from artists performing at The Program, like Can-U, Common Market, D. Black, and more.

You're at work. It's Friday and no one expects you to get any work done on Friday so no one will mind that you put everything aside to listen to this week's Setlist.

Pandering to the Staff (Or: Listen to Setlist!)

posted by on October 12 at 5:10 PM

Because I am such a nice guy, I promised to post about this week's Setlist Podcast, which is now up for your listening pleasure (I'm listening now, and haven't skipped ahead yet!). They play all sorts of good local music, and also have Mr. Jeff Kirby as a guest. Sounds pretty cool, eh? On top of that, if you listen you will learn how to win a copy of the Pleasureboaters' new CD, which is called Gross! Click to listen. (Confidential to Megan and Ari: What happened to the nifty little Flash doodad you used to have for listening to Setlist? That thing was rad.)

Oh, and speaking of Setlist, and guests, and guests on Setlist: It just so happens that yours truly will be a guest on the episode of Setlist that will be live two weeks from today. I will play some songs on my guitar, and probably talk about the upcoming release show for Ball of Wax Volume 10 (11/1 at the Sunset), and probably make Megan and Ari play some of the other bands playing at said show. It will be a podcast to be remembered.

This has been fun, everybody. Thanks to all the other Lineouters, and to The Stranger for being insane enough to give us the keys to the joint for the day. I just wanted to say that in case I have nothing more to say for the next 50 minutes or so.

This Week's Setlist: Our First Musical Guest!

posted by on October 5 at 4:26 PM

This week's Setlist is a great one. I mean it's always great, but this week's is even better because Devoirs plays a few songs for us live in the "studio" (it's not really a studio, it's just an office, but we like to pretend).

christats.jpg

Devoirs is Chris Hong's solo project. He plays dark and worn acoustic songs "about concrete, urban invasive species, and literal and figurative consumption/compulsion." He's inspired by bands like Wire and Black Flag. He's playing the Vera Project October 10 (it's a free show) and Setlist is the only place you can here this exclusive recording.

You'll also hear songs by the Blakes, the Fleet Foxes, the Kindness Kind and more.

Click. Listen. Love.

In order to enter, you had to send us a link to a music-related YouTube video. Here's the winner. It's kind of creepy. . .

And yes, that was Danzig. The guy playing his electric bass as a stand-up really makes it work for me, but of course you can never go wrong with that dimpled chin of his.

posted by on October 2 at 2:48 PM

I have a not-completely-secret admiration for good songs about depression, mental illness, and being and/or feeling insane, and right now I'm working on a Line Out post/playlist that will include many of my favorites that fit that description along with a lot of suggestions from my friends (and possibly any suggestions you have too?).

But while I work on that, I will give you this sneak preview because I can't keep it to myself because I love it so much.

posted by on September 7 at 11:41 AM

OMG! Setlist this week is so bomb-diddly-awesome that it breaks my heart to only be able to share the experience of listening to it. Why is it so freaking awesome? Because we have a guest, the world's most perfect human being: Eli Anderson!

Eli is the assistant booker at Crocodile Cafe, and on this week's Setlist he picks the bands and tells you what you have to do to get a show at the Croc (synopsis: don't be a jerk). Tune in to listen to me and Megan swoon and let someone else do some of the talking for once.

Some of the bands Eli picked that you will enjoy listening to:
The Quiet Ones
The Moondoggies
Tall Birds
Fleet Foxes
Siberian
Throw Me the Statue

and much, much more (we mean it!).
