Some Old and New Favorites

We cover a lot of shows and sometimes, when there’s actually some time for reflection, we flip back through the archives and dig up some favorites, while pining for another SXSW, Voodoo Fest, or a gig at the House of Blues.  Check ’em out and let us know what you think.  And don’t forget the musicians that make all this possible during the holiday season–buy their music, pay double when you have the chance, and tip generously at live shows.
