As I sit here on this frigid Saturday afternoon compiling my own end of the year music list, a small germ of an idea lit up in my feeble brain. Back in the Tempest days, I always badgered my friends and other local music fanatics to create their own lists. Since I love reading these lists, I’m throwing out an invitation to anybody to send me their own. Sometime later this year, I’ll post some of them on this blog, and I may even create an overall “Best of Sioux Falls”.
If so inclined, here’s what you should do. It’s easy! Choose at least ten albums released in 2013. You can expand from that number, but there should be at least ten. If possible, include a few sentences explaining your choices. You can also include a few other lists, such as best songs, best reissues, best local bands. Whatever you feel is worthy of your time.
Send those lists to firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll try to have a post around the end of the year. My personal list will probably be posted next weekend, after I unveil it on next Friday’s Live Ledge on realpunkradio.com.
