    Episode 209: Live Show – Less Talk More Rock

    At our Suburbs Live event, guest Lisa Said joins us in a game of Less Talk More Rock. We each pick three songs. We get 30 seconds to set up our song, then the song is played for 1 minute, then we all get 30 seconds to discuss the song. Plus, Lisa Said performs “Regular Guy” from her new EP “Estranged” at the end of the show. Recorded in front of a live audience at Black Walnut Brewery in Leesburg VA.
