This week’s show prominently featured new music from Tyler Glenn (of Neon Trees), I saw Tyler at Mercury Lounge on Tuesday night and I feel it is very important to share his upcoming album (Excommunication) with the world. I’ve been a fan of Tyler Glenn for over 6 years and I am incredibly proud of him.

While compiling the songs to share with you, I figured I’d throw in some of my other faves as well. We discussed “Let’s Spend the Night Together” by Ms. Pamela Des Barres, which led to a lengthy discussion about groupies and rock and roll.

Also talked a bit about Constantine Maroulis and played some of his stuff. Please have a listen, enjoy!

I failed epically because I intended to play Green Day and for whatever reason, it didn’t work out. But come on. Green Day. 4/20. How did I drop that ball SO hard?

Anyway, fun fact, this show was done remotely, from my friend Jenn’s dorm room at NYU. It was impromptu, but we had a good time. We talked a lot. Politics, the television show Girls and how completely unrealistic it is. We weirdly started planning our Chicago trip. Enjoy the playlist and the conversation.
