First off, thanks to everyone who supported us and made a donation during the Summer Membership Drive last week. We reached our goal lastnight during Expansions! It was a record drive for us and it’s because of you guys that we can keep doing what we do. Thank you so much!
One of the best perks about working at the station is being able to attend the Behind Closed Doors events, and today the hallways are abuzz. The Black Angels are coming!!! The Black Angels are coming!!! Tune in this afternoon at 4:30 for an exclusive live performance from one of our absolute favorite bands. Here’s a little about The Black Angels and their debut full length, Passover…
“This Austin band follows up their debut EP with a powerful album of dark, droning psych-rock containing clear echoes of the late 1960s, when an unpopular war was being fought and the country was undergoing internal turmoil. The dread-filled songs on Passover draw strong parallels between the struggles of that era and whatâ€™s going on in the world today.” – Don Yates

We’re also offering “Bloodhounds on My Trail” (recorded live at KEXP) as today’s Song of the Day podcast.
Finally, we’re proud to present The Black Angels tonight at Chop Suey with Lansing Dreiden and DJ Mamma Casserole. The show is sold out!
