So, here it comes...2010. We are in the future now people. Times are a changin. Yep...time to start fresh and let it all hang out. Sing it with me now: "Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind? Should auld acquaintance be forgot and auld lang syne?"

Yep. But before we ring in the new I am going to let you in on what I listened to this year. I downloaded way less music though this year then in years past. On the other hand I was way more involved in local music and accumulated a ton of 7”s , LPs and tapes from locals and smaller touring bands. I went to countless numbers of local shows and threw a ton of my own shows too. I had a certain attachment for the bands that I knew and saw often. They really drove my musical desires this year. Some are these are not 09’, but here are some notable albums that I rocked...some of them being locals too
