Alittle something extra. I’ve been part of the summer 09 doing what I love, seeing live music! Though I have more to go, Here’s the beginning of a playlist ya’ll should download of some of my bands I love & went to in the last month in LA & in NY 🙂

Regina Spektor: July at The El Rey in Los Angeles. Love me some Regina! Have seen here at Coachella and elsewhere. She rocked at the El Rey!

SONGS: Oh so many! Here are three:

  1. “Real Love”, her cover of John Lennon’s amazing song.
  2. “Après Moi” Begin to Hope.
  3. “Samson” Begin to hope (one of my favorites)
  4. Okay, one extra “On the Radio”. (Another fav)

MGMT: July at Prospect Park in Brooklyn NY. Ah MGMT!!! Last saw them at ACL in Texas. I love every song of theirs but here’s 3:

  1. Time To Pretend
