What Made Milwaukee Famous – “Selling Yourself Short”:
Gentleman Auction House – “The Book of Matches”:
As you may have noticed, I did not post at all last week, much less post a Mystery Mix. Sorry about that. My summer’s getting a little crazy. Work’s crazy, I’ve been traveling and planning a wedding. So, in light of the fact that I will be out of town the next few weekends (this one in Vegas for the old Bachelor Party…), planning a wedding, having a wedding and going on a honeymoon, I will be taking a bit of a late summer break/hiatus. I will actually be doing things, so this isn’t (entirely) me just burning out on this thing. August and September will be a little light, but I will come back in force in October. Keep checking back, as I will be catchign up on some thngs I have been putting off. I will check in with the occasion show suggestion or review and I will be posting some old Mystery Mixes for good measure.
Anyway, here is the last Mystery Mix for a while, number 50.
Here’s the playlist for Vol. 49:
1. The Broken West – Perfect Games
2. Ghosty – A Good Customer
3. The Donkeys – Walk Through a Cloud
4. The Box Social – Hot Damn!

6. The War on Drugs – Taking the Farm

Once again this week, Mystery Mix Monday will occur on a Tuesday.
I was able to drop by Off Broadway last night to catch Jon Hardy & The Public, who are consistently one of the best live bands in town. Do yourself a favor and check them out when you can. Just like the last time I saw them, them they did a spot-on cover of Springsteen’s “Rosalita (Come Out tonight)”. It was the band’s drummer last show in St. Louis and, at his request, the show was a casual affair, with band sporting only jeans and t-shirts as opposed to the normal suits.
