playlist 11.19.11 mystical bohemian folkPosted: November 20, 2011
This week’s set was inspired by mystical folk…. think incense, unique percussion, shamans, accordions, and gratuitous mustaches. I would like to refer to it as gypsy inspired (which I know is not the most P.C. of terms), but that which follows a wanderlust-based aesthetic. I also gave away a pair of tickets to The Sea and The Cake at GAMH and had guest DJ Vagabond (aka Rudy) in the studio!
