Today we say goodbye to September. We hardly knew ye. Somebody wake up Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong, as per his yearly request. Trade in your shorts for sweaters and pumpkin spice everything.

Now that we’re officially in the fall season, there are only about a handful of weekends left to enjoy the nice weather before things begin to take a much colder turn. That’s for those of us in the northern half of the U.S., of course, since things stay a bit more pleasant the further south you go. My point is this: get outside and do something fun! Tailgate for a football game. Have friends over and sit in the sun. The snow will be here before you know it. There are a few summer remnants as part of today’s Pick Your Poison, so take advantage of those as well. Don’t miss downloads from Co-pilgrim, Foolish Atoms, Germany Germany (ft.

Who’s got Pope fever? It’s a dangerous condition people come down with when they encounter Pope Francis. Apparently it’s spreading here in the U.S., so be on the lookout for guys in extra tall hats!

Every Friday, instead of sharing downloads and Soundcloud streams, we take a quick look back at the many other music-related things that happened this week in a segment that’s appropriately called “This Week in Music.” If there was a great or noteworthy music video that was released, it’ll be featured here. If an artist gave a particularly noteworthy interview, that might pop up in the links below. The same goes for interesting articles related to music, documentaries about bands, and just generally whatever might strike my fancy. If you’ve got something fun or important related to an artist that you think should be mentioned here, shoot me an email! All the information you need is in the sidebar on the right. So here’s this week’s wrap-up. Click the links below, and you’ll be off!
