By firstname.lastname@example.org (theledge) on April 28, 2023
Tonight unveils a new sort of theme for a Ledge episode – Twofers! Everybody loves a twofer deal at the bar, so why not transfer the idea to rock and roll. (Yeah yeah yeah, I know radio stations have done this for decades. But it’s new to The Ledge!) The inspiration was a handful of great records that I’ve been paying a lot of attention to in the last few days. Last Saturday, for Record Store Day Sioux Falls (soon to be) legends Off Contact put out a few advance copies of their upcoming debut album, Pearls Before Swine.

Live Ledge #93: Christmas
By email@example.com on December 22, 2012
Besides talking about the St. Paul Graham Parker concert Scott saw earlier this week, tonight is all about punk rock Christmas songs. For the 3rd straight year, Hudson ignores the sentimental garbage and piles on the edgier side of the holidays.
