WFNX Boston Accents Funeral Party Night Two DJ Sets

WFNX Boston Accents Funeral Party Night Two DJ Set Playlists

Well, that was quite a night, wasn't it? Mean Creek covering The Replacements' "Left Of The Dial." Mellow Bravo covering J. Geils Band (which was awesome, but we won't pretend to know the song, the catalogue is deep). The hardcore breakdown in the first of two amazing brand-new songs that Soccer Mom played to end its blinding set. Tons of awesome flying V bass from Dirty Virgins. We think we are just starting to get feeling back in our face, which was most steadfastly rocked off. OK, no we're not. Thanks, too, of courses, to The Boston Phoenix's Michael Marotta, for having my compatriot Brad Almanac and I on for the night. Below are the songs Jay/me/I/not you played between sets and after Mean Creek yielded the stage; we expect it shan't be too long before you can check out Brad's DJ sets over at The 'Nac right here.

Putting our playlists together was a blast, as it allowed us to look at about 20 years of Boston music, to relive all of our wonderful associations with it. From a 1995-or-so live set from Orbit at Northampton's Loud Music Festival, to Westport beach weekends at the turn of the century soundtracked by that Pedal Faster Bicycle Rider Holiday Matinee comp, to riding the T in the rain to The Pernice Brothers, we could go on and on about all of these songs, although the temptation to do so is making us feel very old in a way that hurts a little. So let us just say: we hope you were able to hear at least some of it last night above the din of the capacity crowd. We hope it made you pump your fist, we hope it made you smile, and we hope it made you realize what a special thing we had in the late, lamented WFNX.
