Lineup #169

In 2017, Archives, December 2017 by eseids0 Comments

Let’s chill out a little. Holiday season is extra fun and cheerful, but let’s face it – it can also be kind of stressful and hectic. Between holiday parties, the last few concerts of the season, getting everything together before holiday travels and chasing down lost iPhones left in Lyfts around the city (just me?), it’s been one of those …

Lineup #168

In 2017, Archives, December 2017 by eseids0 Comments

It’s about that time again. For music nerds like me, December is the time of year when we start obsessively ranking our favorite albums, singles, live shows and everything in between. One of my favorite sites Consequence of Sound even released their Top 50 Albums of 2017 in late-November (they were pretty spot on with their #1 pick tho). But …

Back to it. So here’s the deal. We all know there’s nothing fun about heading into a 5-day work week after an extra long weekend full of friends and/or family, thanksgiving food + leftover sandwiches and hopefully a good movie or two (I saw Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird and absolutely loved it). Just as I was adjusting to life that …

Giving Thanks. This past weekend I came down with yet another cold this season – and I can’t say I’m super thankful for that. However,  I am thankful for Nada Rastad aka dot for joining me on The Monday Lineup Radio show on BFF.fm last week and giving me the gift of some brand new tunes, a handful of which …

Getting cozy. Mid-November is when it starts to get “cold” in Northern California. Maybe we don’t get to experience the “wonder” of the changing seasons (in quotes because I do not miss the days of shoveling snow in Boston in my youth), but we do get just enough of a temperature drop and a bit of precipitation that we still …

Oof. How is it already November already? That shit cray. Meanwhile, I’m doing my best not to think about what happened a year ago this week because it’s hurting my brain and my soul. But when the going get’s tough, Lineup #164 is here to temporarily pull you out of the insanity. It’s the least I can do. Until next …

Treats. Halloween completely snuck up on me this year. I’m pretty sure I haven’t eaten a single pumpkin spiced anything, and I definitely don’t have a costume yet. Alas, this week’s Lineup has absolutely nothing to do with Halloween – although it is filled with loads of treats if I do say so myself. Trying to get in the Halloween …

Busted. Here’s the thing. I just got back to San Francisco after a trip to Montana to watch two of my favorite humans get married. I also brought back a completely busted knee after a super cute fall while trying to get one last hike in before heading home. I suppose it serves me right for deciding to hike 5 …

Let’s try this again. The past two Mondays have delivered us some of the worst news, and the past two weeks have just felt long and tiring and filled with weight. When I started The Monday Lineup in 2014, the worst part of Monday morning was the dread of going back to work after the weekend. An hour of good …

Summer in the city. I wrote this post Sunday evening, and again woke up to news that is never the way I want to start a Monday, or any day. As firefighters work to stop the wildfires in Napa and Sonoma counties, my thoughts and prayers go out to those communities and everyone affected. My original post below. — Well, …
