Happy New Year, everybody.
Overall, 2017 was pretty confusing and a little dark. However, every Monday I made sure to brighten up the place by interviewing an awesome band and rocking out to their music—you’re very welcome.
Out of the hundreds of bands I chatted with this year, these are my top ten favorite. Their music is spot on and has been left on repeat ever since I met them. Check the list out below and head to The Music Meetup page to listen to all the episodes and choose your own favorites.
