Part 1 of my conversation with special guest Mike Heyliger as we discuss the transition of moving to the Boston area. I've also got the Bonehead of the Week and music from Gorillaz, Boots Electric, Andrew Bird and Mike Doughty.
- Check out Mike's blog Popblerd
- Mike grew up in New York, moved to Boston in 2008
- Slow adjustment
- Mike: Every time I go back, I like NY less
- Slower pace in Boston, except for the drivers
- Jay: Even slower pace in NH
- Mike: Occasionally gets crap for wearing Yankees gear
- Not a ton of diversity in Boston
- Jay: Toronto is extremely diverse
- Still plenty of racism to go around
- The world's a lot different than it was 30 years ago
- Mike: Boston music scene is better than NYC's
- Good selection of clubs
- Mike's broken $100 ticket barrier to see Prince, Stevie Wonder, Janet Jackson, Jay-Z/Kanye
- To be continued
- Bonehead of the Week
Boots Electric - I Love You All the Thyme
Andrew Bird - EyeonEye
Mike Doughty - Na Na Nothing
