A Year End List from Joe Smyth of Nine Mile Records and Touring

Joe Smyth help us keep our Austin theme today, as he’s one of the folks helping get Austin acts (and others) out on the road. But, more importantly, he’s a scavenger of music news, so he’s given us a couple of great lists…one a shout out to the blogs that turned him onto great music…and the other just a general best of list. Peruse as you must, and if you have touring needs…check out Nine Mile Touring.

Friendly Fires @ Mohawk (11/19)


Date 11/19/09
Location Mohawk
Doors 8pm
Tickets $10 from Frontgate

Front runners of the dance movement Friendly Fires are playing at Mohawk on Thursday night.  The show also includes buzz band The XX and Holly Miranda so the lineup is sick.  This also gives me an excuse to put up this XX song called “” which will probably be in my year end top songs list.
