Top 12 Lineups of 2016

As you've figured out by now, I love spending the month of December looking back on all of the extraordinary music brought into the world in the past year. Thus, it would be remiss of me not to do some self-reflecting on all of the Monday Lineup's I created in 2016. And while I try my best not to play favorites, some weeks the stars aligned and the Lineups shined just a little bit brighter than the rest. These are those Lineups.
