Have you ever wondered who selects the music at some of your favorite stores and restaurants? In this series, our RX Music Programmer’s will be giving you a taste of the music being curated for the amazing brands we work with!

 Freebirds World Burrito is a regional US fast-food chain of casual burrito restaurants that was founded in 1987 in Santa Barbara, California, it later expanded into Texas in 1990 and have since expanded into other states. They offer salads, tacos, quesadillas, nachos, and more. The environmentally conscious  company stocks recycled paper products in its locations, and prints its menus on 100% recycled papers.

Let’s dive into Programmer Tony Young’s picks!

The Freebirds brand is musically open-minded and has welcomed unique programming that reflects the nature of the culture – Fresh. Honest. Good. The restaurants have specialty music lists that span across various musical genres.

Freebirds – 2P

This list serves as the main playlist for all locations and it reflects the eclectic music mix from alternative to hip-hop, rock and soul/funk.

The upbeat cool edge of this track fits into the family atmosphere of Freebirds.

Freebirds – Texas Tuesday

A specialty playlist that features artists who are all originally from Texas!

Song #2 – Max Frost – High All Day

Hailing from Austin, Texas this multi-instrumentalist manages to put an alternative pop twist on a love song.

Freebirds – West Coast Wednesday

Song #3 – Weezer – Happy Hour

Weezer delivers a warm hearted diddy with Happy Hour.  This track brings a nice chilled balance to the hip-hop and heavy rock/alternative sounds of the West Coast.
