The Next American City Playlist

Remember when Next American City Editor-in-Chief Diana Lind asked readers just under three weeks ago, “Can anyone out there make a map of all the cities that are mentioned in these songs? It would be cool and we’d post it somewhere.” She was of course referencing the playlist put together by DJ Doug Sell for our Issue #20 Release Party. And wouldn’t you know it, someone went out and made the map!

Many thanks go to Corrie in Austin, Tx. for the Google Map representation of the release party’s playlist from everyone at Next American City! The interactive map can be found above as well as here on Google, where you can add things to it and adapt our playlist for yourself. Can you think of more city-centric songs that are missing from the list? Maybe you’re just upset that there wasn’t more Interpol? Let us know in the comments below!
