I know you've all been waiting

It actually didn't take me very long to pick out which songs I want to play at Crush on Saturday. I had a couple of things that I figured many people hadn't heard but needed to. At the top of that list is "Fast Cars" by U2. This was actually a bonus track on their new album, but you didn't get it unless you bought the super deluxe hardback book version. I spent the extra money to get the bonus DVD version of How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb but apparently that wasn't enough to warrant also getting this little gem of a song. Thanks U2.

So here's my list in playing order:

We Will Become Silhouettes - The Shins
Blow It Out - The Features
Take It Easy (Love Nothing) - Bright Eyes
Fast Cars - U2
The Brute Choir - Palace Music

Fifteen minutes goes by pretty fast, doesn't it?

You might notice the Postal Service song "We Will Become Silhouettes" is actually being covered by The Shins. It's a b-side from a Postal Service single and you should buy it on iTunes poste haste. The last song is a little something my good buddy Josh once put on a mix CD. I've been listening to it a lot lately and I figure it will be a nice quiet end to the set.

This is also probably a little preview to my upcoming summer mix CD (although Carrie and I might have to arm wrestle over the use of "Blow It Out"). I've got a few songs picked out and I hope to get it together in the next month or so.

Did you say "summer mix cd?" How exactly can I get my name on the list for one of these legendary musical mind-benders?

My daily commute between Folsom and Grass Valley is getting longer and longer by the day. I've borrowed all the cds from the library (including some god-awful stuff that I will fail to mention here).
