This will have to be short as I had to book back to my hotel room to unload gear and then go back across town to the listener party that is starting as I type this. I’m still on my Shins high, they were last today and what a way to end the broadcast!!! They played a ton of new stuff and the studio was beyond full with listeners, press, everyone!

Shackletons started the day and might be the surprise of CMJ/KEXP this year. I love those guys live, and will be seeing them in a matter of hours at our Friction event. Listen to them on today’s Live Performances podcast.

Archie Bronson is one of the loudest bands I’ve ever seen. The drummer was part Animal (the drummer) and Keith Moon. So great.

All and all another GREAT day from Gigantic. We had the best week of live radio we’ve ever done, won awards, had some beers, saw 20 bands here and countless others in the city. We want to thank everyone at Gigantic, Brian, Elissa, Alex and Billy as well as our GREAT photographer Doron, our Seattle Posse Deb, Janet, April, Shannon and Amy as well as our staff who made the trip Timie, Tom, Kevin and Cheryl. Big thanks to Chilly, Mel and Andy back in Seattle as well as Jack and Jason and everyone else I’m forgetting.

    Man! They really cleaned up Gigantic. I used to practice there in the mid-late 90’s and it was kind of a hole.

    It was pretty fun to sit in Seattle and hear KEXP broadcast from there. Brought back memories.
