Stuck In Thee Garage #34: May 2, 2014

It never ceases to amaze me how music can make just about any situation better. For me, anyway. Swamped with work? Crank up some rock and I'll get through it. Running around with a million things to do? Fire up the iPod. Pissed off at the world? Make it one louder.

This week was crazy busy, but the sense of accomplishment at putting together a good show is always worth it. I ended up playing a ton of newer music in hour 1 and then songs about nighttime in hour 2. It came together pretty nicely.
