Playlists 9-19-2010

I think I can say that Weezer is back. They're new album Hurley is quickly becoming one of my favorite albums from 2010, which is not an easy slot to get to. With new music from Drive-By Truckers, the Sword, Grinderman, DEVO, the Sadies, Black Keys...Hurley does a great job of fitting in and bringing back that awesome Weezer sound, not so much Pinkerton but more Maladroit-y.

Pavement put on a great show at the Legendary Roy Wilkins last night. They went through all of Erik Larson's favorites and even played Range Life for me. I'll take some time to find a setlist later today. Malkmus made reference to "seeing pavement for the last time" and "pavement's gone", but the rest of the band sure looked like they were enjoying themselves. Cheers to the performance, very solid.

Sunday night was a huge success. I'd like to thank T.S. for coming in with me and helping take calls, texts, setlist, dinking buddy duty, and for the starbursts. A big thank you goes out to all the listeners who called and texted in requests. I believe we even got one legitimate request on the air from someone we didn't know. It was the most exciting part of the weekend by far.
