Crime/Mystery Writers Create Spotify Playlist

R&R Spotify Playlist

Having a BBQ this Labor Day weekend? Looking for a gloomy playlist of dark and murderous rock songs to encourage more drinking at your pool party? We have just the Spotify playlist for you—“Rock & Roll’s Not A Crime”!

I have collected song suggestions from some of my favorite West Coast crime/mystery writers including Eric Beetner, Anonymous-9, Craig Faustus Buck and Josh Stallings. This playlist was created in anticipation of our upcoming event, “Rock & Roll’s Not A Crime,” at the Buena Vista Library Branch in Burbank CA on Oct. 14—but you can enjoy the darkness right now on Spotify (you can listen if you sign up for a free account).
