So I haven't updated this in almost a year. Sorry!!! I save all the playlists from my shows, I just haven't had time to put them up. Maybe some day. If you have any questions about songs I played you can email me at rebecca dot anna dot smith at gmail dot com for the info!

3.13 1/21/08

Back! So the week before this show I was in Hawaii, giving presentations galore on engineering. My partner & I made pump-up CDs to listen to in the rental cars, and the second set is taken from these amazing CDs. ha. And let's see.. the 3rd set is made up of songs from the TV show 'Friday Night Lights,' because I got really into that over break, haha, and it has pretty good music on it!

Oh yeah and I gave away a pair of tickets to see Juno.

The Comeback (Big Slippa Mix by Ratatat) - Shout Out Louds
Cheated Hearts (Acoustic) - Yeah Yeah Yeahs
I Made A Resolution - Sea Wolf

Maps - Yeah Yeah Yeahs (this was pretty much our ultimate, sing-at-the-top-of-our-lungs, pump-up song)

Last show before break! I only had one final this time, so that was niiiiice. For the next 4 weeks I had subs.. thanks, subs! Once again I'm not sure about how I broke up the sets, unfortunately. Oh well, I'll make some educated guesses. Also, note the decidedly more holiday-y songs. I do love the holidays.

3.10 12/3/07

Yikes so I just realized that I haven't updated this in forever! And I don't know if I'll be able to find the playlists I print out - I usually write notes on these so that when I actually manage to post them I can remember how I broke the sets up, what tickets I gave out, etc. Hmm. OK so I just looked and only found one, not for this show. Oh well.

Les Os - The Unicorns
Sister Jack - Spoon
City Middle - The National

Sixty-Five and Sunny - Travels
Naomi - Neutral Milk Hotel

I don't really know if that's how I split it up, but it seems right-ish.

3.09 11/26/07

An Vu's bday!! Cute. But yeah, I actually had pretty much no time at all to plan this. It was super last minute etc, but it turned out alright. Also, my friend Brett stopped by to have a pseudo-meeting and contribute on the air :) It was fun, and I'm told that I sounded much crazier than usual. I don't know.

Gave out tickets to MIA concert.

Also, since it's after Thanksgiving, I can start playing holiday tunes! So I included a few, but I wasn't really feeling a ton.

Splitting Up Christmas - Kevin Devine
Your Hand In Mine - Explosions In The Sky

High Days - Bert Jansch
Casimir Pulaski Day - Sufjan Stevens
A Minor Incident - Badly Drawn Boy

Unless It's Kicks - Okkervil River

3.08 11/19/07

And this.. was the show before Thanksgiving break. It was interesting, I guess. Pseudo random. The night before I had been in what could only be described as a Pinkerton mood, although this can mean many things for me, but yeah. I love that stuff.

Gave out a pair of tickets to a Sondre Lerche/Dan Wilson show that I had really wanted to go to, buttt it was on the Sunday after Thanksgiving so I didn't think it was wise. Probably a good idea, because I didn't get back until midnight that night!

Finer Feelings - Spoon
Paris Is On - Paul Brill
Let It Rain - OK Go

Else - Built To Spill
Up Against The Wall - Peter Bjorn & John

The Henney Buggy Band - Sufjan Stevens
Sleep On Needles - Sondre Lerche
Closing Time (Acoustic) - Semisonic

Come On Home - Franz Ferdinand
El Scorcho - Weezer

Getchoo - Weezer
Catastrophe And The Cure - Explosions In The Sky
