Live Ledge #208: Number Eight

I was all prepared for a certain format for tonight's show. The tracks were all chosen; notes were ready to be used to introduce the songs.
Then something extremely cool happened. I received an mention on twitter that included a blog link. Obviously, I clicked to find out what was going on here. My earlier shows devoted to a certain track number influenced Will Neville to create his own list of track nine's to commemorate September. That's so cool that I dumped my original plan and went with a show of nothing but track eight's to corrrespond with the last days of this warm, rainy August.
As always, this show is not really a "best" of track eight. Sure, there's some classic included, but for the most part it's just songs that caught my eye as I went through my iTunes library. Hopefully, you'll enjoy this little mix of punk, alternative, British Invastion, and a touch of Americana.
