When people are getting ready for a show, inevitably they hole up in their studio and rock out to their favorite songs and work like mad.  With that said, we decided to share our favorite songs and essentially make a "Mix Tape" especially for you with all of the songs we listened to non-stop while getting ready for NCECA.

So, here are each of our Mix Tapes made for you.  Enjoy!
