From The Arcade Fire to Zero 7, live performances have consistently been an important and unique aspect of KEXP’s programming. While the KEXP Live Performances section provides you access to hundreds of exclusive live performances, now you can subscribe to a weekly podcast that brings you a series of complete live in-studio sessions.

This week we’re delivering a very special performance from Michael Franti, recorded live on KEXP from Sonic Boom Records in Ballard on 10/13/06. KEXP celebrated Ballard – the Seattle neighborhood that pledged the most during the 2006 Spring Pledge Drive – with a day-long celebration. Hear the crowd sing and cheer along with Michael Franti as he performs soulful acoustic originals at Sonic Boom.
