Here’s the playlist from tonight’s CanHazDJ show.  Join me every Tuesday night from 10pm to 12am (and a little bit more) for some of everything and a little bit more. Tonight’s show focused the 2nd hour on “proto punk” the music that was the roots of punk, from Captain Beefheart to old ska to T Rex to New York Dolls to The Sonics to Hawkwind and everything in between.
