Powerstripe – Tigercity – Such a big mistake having the great indie soul band Tigercity close for the Grates at Mercury Lounge. Who can appreciate Tigercity’s sweet soul grooves after an hour trampoline bound powerpop? Past midnight as well… Better off checking out this bass heavy soul ballad off their 2007 Pretend To Run with a great chorus based on Bill Gillim’s falsetto.

Since I Don’t Have You – Guns ‘n’ Roses – I am about to write a post about the connection between women who love you and the burn mixes they give you.
