Lineup #12

In Archives, December 2014 by eseids0 Comments

Let’s do it live. If 2013 was the year for album releases, 2014 (at least for me) was the year for live music. In total, I will clock in at 28 concerts and 3 festivals meaning that approximately every 10.4 days I was experiencing live music of some kind. And while I’m purposely avoiding calculating how much money I spent, I …

Lineup #11

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Yep, it’s Superlative Season. Time to decide the best of the best, the worst of the worst and reflect on everything that was brought into the music world in 2014. But I don’t want to get ahead of myself. The remaining four weeks of 2014 still have a lot more in store – James …

Thanks. I know it’s cliche but if you’re reading this right now, thank you. Whether it’s your first time to The Monday Lineup or you’ve been gchatting me every Monday morning to tell me your favorite song choices since Lineup #1, I am having just the best time in the world sharing music with you and for lack of better words, I …

Lineup #9

I’ll cover you. The idea to do a Lineup consisting entirely of covers came to me last week. At first I was so excited about the idea, but then I almost abandoned ship. First of all, there’s a million covers out there. Think about any concert you go to – 9 times out of 10 an artist does a cover …

Lineup #8

Making The Lineup. While definitely not as exciting as MTV’s hit series Making The Video, I thought I’d share with you how this week’s Lineup was created – in case you are curious. If you aren’t, feel free to just hit play and I promise I won’t be offended. Scouts honor. I’m obsessed with my Evernote. I keep a running list …

Lineup #7

Deep dive into Fall. If Tropical House was the sound of the Summer, Deep House is definitely the “it” sound this Fall. While the genre originated back in the 1980s in Chicago, it’s having quite the renaissance with artists like the UK’s Disclosure, Gorgon City and Duke Dumont reinventing the sound for our generation and bringing it to the masses. Deep House has a much …

We gettin’ fancy. The Monday Lineup turns the ripe age of 6 (weeks) today and to celebrate, we’re stepping up the game a bit with a brand new super-organized archive section where you can view past Lineups by month. I know, just what you were always wishing for! Check it out on the left side of the site. This week’s Lineup …

Lineup #5

We love you San Francisco. I’ll make this part short and sweet. Given that I’m coming off of an amazing weekend of back to back to back to back music (I mean literally we saw 16 shows in 2 days) in the most beautiful setting possible (panoramic views of San Francisco with no fog, what?), I can guarantee that this week’s …

Lineup #4

X marks the spot. Sorry to everyone who isn’t a resident of the San Francisco Bay Area, but for this Lineup I’m taking a brief moment to gush about Treasure Island Music Festival, my favorite little music festival in the world – happening Saturday and Sunday of this upcoming weekend. It has everything a girl could dream of – gorgeous views …

Lineup #3

The year was 2009. And these were my favorite songs. Inspired by my recent stream of Oktoberfest Time Hops, I did a backwards search of my “liked” songs on my (then very active) Hype Machine account – a musical Time Hop if you will. And it was an absolute treat. So much so, that I’m dedicating this week’s (two part!) Throwback Lineup …
