#1744: You Ain’t Got No Choice

There’s a reason so many legendary bands come from NYC.  You’ve got the five boroughs plus the surrounding “metro area” and all of them feed bands into the NYC music scene.  That’s a lot of competition and as a result you have a better chance of good stuff rising to the top.  There’s something for everyone, and for me in the last year there have been of host of great sonic discoveries.

This set is a sort of aural exploration of the last year or so for me in NYC.  This is a collection of bands I’ve seen live, record labels that I’ve followed, guests from the show, friends I’ve made and surprises from all corners of our sleepless city.  It’s not THE comprehensive list for the super-hip by any means, but it’s my 2017 love letter to my favorite place in the world.
