Days Of The Week show

After playing "Everyday Is Like Sunday" on a grey, rainy day this weekend I decided that this week's theme would be the days of the week. I pick these themes because they get me to dig deeper into my library, pair unusual bands and are generally fun to make flow well. Unsurprisingly, the weekend days are over-represented and the mid-week Wednesday and Thursday are not as great for song titles. A surprising amount of kiwi bands write songs about the days of the week along with some classic post-punk, alt-country and more!
