The dead of winter is no fun, especially when you’re dealing with massive blizzards, chilling temperatures, and the Giants out of the playoffs. Despite the lineups and rumors, festivals seem so far away and our next big holiday is what? President’s Day? That’s no fun.
This is where our Friday Mixtape comes in. New music always kicks ass, but it’s even better when fending off the winter blues. Christmas is 11 months away? Psshh… check out new music from Bright Eyes, Social Distortion, and The Radio Dept. instead. Plus, we have a wonderful assortment of covers, compliments of Cover Me.
