The standard tagline for Everyone’s Invited is that you’ll hear music that’s old and new, familiar and obscure, from around the corner and around the world.  Even when focusing on the best releases of the year, the statement holds true.  Crammed into two hours we’ve got music from bands that have been around for 25+ years (the old) and bands that have formed just over the summer (the new).  We’ve got big names (familiar) and underground acts that had to be dug up out of an internet wormhole (obscure).  We’ve got bands from Upstate NY (around the corner), and bands from the UK and Spain (around the world).   Tune in next Sunday from 7-9pm at Westcott Radio to hear Part Two!
