[Last Thursday's Playlist] NEW MUSIC NIGHT VII at River Gods

 The latest installment of our ongoing series of DJ gigs known as NEW MUSIC NIGHT happened on an evening when there was a whole lot of other stuff going on around Boston. Hell, if I wasn't up in the booth, there are at least 2 shows I'd have loved to check out. But I did my sonic duty, alternating hours with Jay Clicky Clicky, by playing a plethora of entirely new tracks for the patrons of beloved Central Square bar River Gods.

Check out Jay's playlists at Clicky Clicky.

Here's what went down during my sets, aurally speaking...
