Tourfilter Night playlist (April 15)

April 16, 2010

As promised, here’s a full playlist from last night’s set for Tourfilter Night at River Gods, in Cambridge, MA. Unsurprisingly, local and Canadian bands are overrepresented – I’ve flagged the local bands with a red asterisk, but you’re on your own for spotting the Canucks. Hyperlinked song titles takes you to free MP3 downloads. I had a fantastic time assembling and sharing this playlist – thanks to Chris Marstall for inviting me to guest-DJ, the wonderfully friendly and welcoming staff at River Gods, and everyone who came out.
