Mix CD: Track 5

Remember how I said we might have one of these on Christmas? Yeah, that didn't happen. But, if you can't take Christmas off, then when can you take a day off?

Oh, make sure you check out our friends at Film Courage, every Sunday at noon PST (psst...that's today).

5. I Know Every Street
Artist: Lohio
Album: History, the Destroyer

Lohio, a Pittsburgh-based band, has been compared to Wilco. Of course, much like Wilco, it's really hard to summarize their sound so easily. Unless, of course, that word is "infectious".

If you had to bet on one Pittsburgh artist to "make it", I'd put my money on these guys.

Check out (some of) them playing a different song on KDKA:

1. On the Road (Jack Kerouac)
2. The 50 States Song (Sufjan Stevens)
3. No Cars Go (Arcade Fire)
4. Stuck Inside of Mobile With the Memphis Blues Again (Bob Dylan)
