Who’s that guy at the WLOY open mic nights? You know, the dude who always comes singin’ songs about Greek mythology and absolutely kills it. Well, that’s our friend Dave, and this Thursday at WLOY’s Coffee House he will be accompanied by his posse of sound sculptors. Indigenous to our very own Baltimore, Blind Man Leading brings you a bodacious blend of rock-pop placed within the subtleties of jazz rhythm. If you’ve never heard of Blind Man Leading, relinquish your deafness and check out their newly released EP “SWORDS” or a some of their live performances. After you’re awed (which you most definitely will be) come by the 3rd Floor Reading Room, this Thursday night, 9pm.

Well, maybe we picked 11, because we play music and can’t count. Ok, give us a break. We polled a few current and former staff members to see what they can’t live without at Christmas time. You know, the music that makes them enjoy the season, not want to shove pencils in their ears if they have to hear it one more time (Elmo & Patsy, we’re looking at you). And because we care about you, our listeners, we even threw in an iTunes link so you can add them to your own playlists at home (you’re welcome). Here they are in no particular order, along with a reminder to get into the spirit of the season and share your gifts with others : (more…)
