Mint Pillow Dates Late October / Early November (Collage – D.Hixon)
Mint Pillow will be busy over the coming weeks. First DJ’ing the annual NOCtoberfest party at G2 Tech Group this Thursday (10/26) in Boston’s innovation district – one of his favorite parties of the year. This year will be a Dead Rock Star Ball and the costume party will be accompanied by a very special VJ set as Pillow mixes some of his favorite videos of musical heroes who’ve gone onto the next journey. Registration required for attendance, and you can peep the available costume list here.
State Park Halloween Social
Come Sunday (10/29) it’s State Park’s Halloween Social – which is a free rock show with Creaturos, Beware the Dangers of a Ghost Scorpion!, and Mint Pillow spinning indie/garage/psych jamz before, in-between, and after, an all vinyl affair. Party kicks off at 8pm.
Next Saturday (11/4) is a private event for Pillow in Burlington, MA – and on 11/11 he’ll be out at Cold Harbor Brewing Co. in Westborough, MA from 4pm – 9pm for a kickin’ party for the release of their first ever can.
See ya’ll around!

Episode 93 – Music Detectives Listen To After Making Love (Artwork – D. Hixon)
I have an affinity for Detectives. I gravitate strongly towards the label of hopeless dreamer – and am enamored by both the Detectives search for truth as well as their beautiful flaws – they’re such a hyperbolic yet real manifestation of what it means to be a walking talking breathing human. These are songs I think those with Detective hearts would enjoy listenings to.
1. Isaac Hayes – Walk From Regio’s
2. Frank Zappa – Twenty Small Cigars
3. Sun Ra – Plutonian Nights
4. Piero Piccioni – Traffic Boom
5. Quiet Village – Circus Of Horror
6. The Ventures – The Fourth Dimension
7. Los Destellos – Pasión Oriental
8. The Hippy Boys – Seven Heaven
9. Adriano Correia De Oliveira – Rosa De Sangue
10. Focus – Janis
11. The Avalanches – Colours
12. Pantha Du Prince – Lions Love
13. DJ Shadow – Dark Days (Spoken For Mix)
