To paraphrase the Beastie Boys, we'd all much rather be "coolin' on the corner on a hot summer's day." But summer is over. Not officially, of course, but as Labor Day wanes, autumn awaits. On tonight's TAS on FUV, we'll try to stir ourselves from early September doldrums by spinning music from bands playing gigs in New York this fall — like Jagwar Ma, Austra, Holy Ghost!, Phoenix and Of Montreal — plus hear from other familiar TAS favorites, like Arcade Fire, Beirut, the Mountain Goats and, of course, the Beastie Boys.
Plus, the Moz Monday Shuffle and the Mix-Up, featuring Neon Indian and the now-defunct New York band that went by Brahms.
Join me tonight at 10 for TAS on FUV. And tomorrow, after a two-week working holiday, Russ Borris returns to kick off the fall season with loads of new music.
