Fresh Facts, the Indy's guide to being a better local, hit newsstands today. The magazine provides something of an introduction to this here city, as well as helpful hints and suggestions for those of us who've been around for a while.
This year's issue includes a piece called "Hit play: Missoula's ultimate soundtrack, courtesy of the local music scene," a different kind of roundup of bands and artists. We've curated a heartache playlist, an angry, pumped-up playlist, a playlist for the road, a playlist for hanging out by the river, and a playlist for late night beer hoisting. Reading about the lists is fine and dandy, but what you really should do is actually hear them. Here's your chance:
PLAYLIST ONE: HEARTACHE BY THE NUMBERS
PLAYLIST TWO: RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE
PLAYLIST THREE: SIX DAYS ON THE ROAD
PLAYLIST FOUR: GO TO THE RIVER
PLAYLIST FIVE: BEER HOISTIN' DANCE PARTY
