Anddddd, here we go, onward and upward. As promised, here's a shiny new playlist featuring four hours of music for your listening pleasure. Classic Alternative Playlist #1 features Velvet Underground, The Smiths, Majesty Crush, New Order, XTC, Aztec Camera, Boo Radleys, Pavement, Pailhead, Joy Division, and so many more. Stream down below directly on Spotify. If you don't have a Spotify account, it's easy to sign up and stream for free. Understand that I'm hoping this is only a short term fix and there will be a better long term solution. But in the meantime, I wanted you to have some music to enjoy, and I hope you dig it.
A massive thank you for all the kind comments and words of support, it really does mean so much to me. It's been an emotional few days, but your love has helped me through it and I thank you for that. I will be responding to all the individual messages/tweets/emails shortly.
A few other music related tidbits:

3. Don't forget about the upcoming Psychedelic Furs/Robyn Hitchcock show at the Majestic on April 11th. These legendary acts don't get to Detroit that often, so be sure to take advantage. Link to tickets is here.
Keep smashing the paradigm. XO
