LATE NIGHT DISPATCHES

We’ve decided to record a small segment after every show we go to, while the experience is fresh in our heads. We intended to put them up immediately, but we didn’t get the chance. We have three, two of which are packaged together. The first one is for the Built to Spill secret show at Bunk Bar in October, combined with a review of Snow Patrol and Noel Gallagher’s co-headline set at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall. Click here to listen/right-click to download.

The second is from the homecoming show by Menomena, at the Crystal Ballroom, with special guest and friend of the show, Anna Mackay. Click here to listen/right-click to download.

Enjoy!
