On Saturday, September 27th thousands gathered at the Gallivan Center in downtown Salt Lake City in the rain. People came a great time and to see some amazing bands: Neon Trees, Phantogram, A Day to Remember, Capital Cities, Broods, The Eeries and amazing performances by local bands The Departure and Ocean Commotion. Here's how it all went down:
After last, Big Ass Show, Saturday one thing is clear: Summer is over. It's gone, baby. We are now in the season of reverence, thoughtfulness, self-reflection, warm beverages and too-soon festive decorations lining store shelves.
So, in the spirit of the changing leaves and chilly air I have assembled 25 songs that I think fit the season. It's probably not the cheeriest of playlists, but there is some great stuff here. Some of it you may know and some not so much. Some of the songs are new and some old. And yes, the list leans a little hipster - tis the season of scarfs, after all.
Feel free to leave some of your own suggestions in the comments.

You can finally listen to the new Weezer album, "Everything Will Be Alright in the End" a week before it's released.
To my surprise many of the so-called hipster blogs and critics have thrown high praise on this album. It could be because Ric Ocasek, who produced their "Blue" album has returned to produce this one, or perhaps it's okay to like Weezer again. Could be the music is that good.
You can decide for yourself by streaming the album over at iTunes Radio.

The new Weezer album, "Everything Will Be Alright in the End" will be out on October 7th, so I am guessing we will get a full stream of the album sometime next week. Until them the band has shared another track. This is the closest thing I have head to the "Blue Album" and it makes plenty of sense since Rick Ocasek produced that album as well. Two minutes and fourty-nine seconds of what could work as a sequel to "Buddy Holly" in spirit.
