playlist - dec. 10th, 2011!

Allright ladies and germs, the gig us up for this semester's Kids of PS 118. We enjoyed providing what we hoped were some good laughs and, at the very least, interesting music. We are definitely going to be back semester, and we are coming back in full force (with Nora returning from the Europe). Special mention should be made of our interns Natalie and Sara, who killed it while they were with us in the studio. They'd done it before, but intern take-over week was a success all around. Here's the recap:
