Obscure Sound: Best of September 2008

As October rolls around and the leaves start turning from green to brown, it has become a realization for me that my transition into a more urbanized environment has its own perks and disadvantages. I have been in DC for about a month and a half now, exploring the city in small doses as I see which venues and local acts are worth checking out. I am taking the maximum amount of credits available at AU, so classes have caused me to attend less shows than I would have liked. Still, I only have two months left of this hectic schedule until winter break commences. After that, my spring semester should give me plenty of more time to explore the city and the activities surrounding it. Work has been arduous and lengthy, yes, but working continuously on this site is something I have always enjoyed. That being said, I am glad to be visiting New Jersey again this weekend for a little break; it will be great to see family and friends again in a relaxed atmosphere. So, everyone have a great weekend and enjoy the compilation.
