Tonight is Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final between the San Jose Sharks and Pittsburgh Penguins. In honour of that, it’s time for a “Track Listing” that pits (Pitts?) the two markets against each other – well, not really “against” but it’ll be Bay Area and Pittsburgh artists on display so yeah!
The timing of this post could be better as they’re surprisingly on the verge of elimination, but the Golden State Warriors are a total powerhouse. The defending NBA champions had a record 73-win season this year and have almost rewritten how to play the game.

Since The Perfect Scene debuted in February 2014 it’s been on Blogger. Google’s platform is user-friendly and detailed, and really could still serve this site just fine.

There’s a part of me that feels bad doing this “Track Listing”, because female rockers shouldn’t be considered a novelty and I don’t want it to come off like they are.
