Friday BBQ Spotify 1/18/13
One thing about Texans . . . they love their barbecue, but they also really love their music. Almost as much as they love both of them together. So we thought we’d start a regular Friday event: a selection of music on Spotify to jumpstart your weekend that would go with any barbecue affair. And what better way to kick off the whole thing than with ten cuts from some great musicians that were either born in Texas, live in Texas, or that the state has otherwise claimed as its own. On future Fridays, we’ll sometimes feature music from Texas musicians for certain. But we also might pick some from Georgia, Mississippi, or from right here in the San Francisco Bay area. The only requirements will be that you need to have Spotify installed on your computer, tablet, or smartphone, and the music needs to sound good while ribs, brisket, chicken, or sausage are slow-smoke cookin’ in the background. And that might cut a pretty wide swath. Enjoy, and y’all have a great weekend!
