May Tunes from Eric Neet*

*Each month the Anchorage Press hands the playlist reins over to a local musician or music enthusiast for independent construction. The Press Blog then shares said playlist along with the maker’s thoughts about the mix and a concise bio about the constructor and his or her current project(s). For the month of May local musician Eric Neet, of the group Dabarko, put together a list of things he’s been digging on lately. Neet’s is the seventh playlist in our ongoing series.

Dabarko from left to right is Eric Neet (bass), Andy Tholberg (guitar, vox) and Wes Hartlieb (drums).

Dabarko recently opened for the Presidents of the United States at Bear Tooth as part of the Theatre’s May First Tap show. The group will play again on Thursday, May 8 with Plagiarist at Chilkoot Charlie’s. That show will be free and begins at 10 p.m.
