Damn, Madison! The indie/punk/rock music scene has been hopping lately with visiting bands and local favorites.

Anyone who found themself dancing at Fin Zipper, Trophy Dad, Slow Pulp and Greenhaus shows in the past few weeks likely has a pretty bad case of whiplash, so, the Hitlist this week is inspired by the touring bands that have played shows around here lately, and those everyone wishes would come (*cough* Mac Demarco *cough*). This one is for you indie kids to feast your ears on.

Happy jamming!
