Spinning records live next week!

Next Wednesday the 31st I will be spinning some soul music at River Gods in Cambridge as part of Jason Beek's American Primitive night each and every Wednesday. I will be playing from 9-10 and from 11-12, I think. Feel free to stop by and say hello or to throw rotten tomatoes (if need be).

Need directions? You can find 'em here.

See you there!
