    What a coincidence, after going on a Curtis Mayfield binge today I pop open this thread and see this. Here's some more:

    Went down an early 80's rabbit hole myself this weekend after hearing that Sarah Romweber from Lets Active died. Her brother Dexter led the two man band Flat Duo Jets and was an inspiration for White Stripes. Lets Active's member Mitch Easter produced the early (i.e. good) REM albums that were recorded literally across the street from my junior high school. I saw REM play in the oldest punk club in the US (The Milestone) with about 150 other folks. A year later saw the last Minutemen concert ever as they opened up for REM.

    Minutemen Public Access Acoustic

    Milestone Club for reference-..saw REM, Go-Go's, Meatpuppets, Replacements, Bad Brains here...

    MTV before 120 minutes...Dexter sings at the end.

    I want to dress like someone attending a Latin music concert in NYC in 1960 this summer.

    @Parker Ah, I miss listening to Chuy on the weekends!

    I've been listening to Jim Hall quite a bit the last few days, I especially like his first album with Bill Evans:
