Help us celebrate at the John in the Morning at Night Birthday Bash, this Friday (March 9) at Neumos with The Saturday Knights, El Perro Del Mar, The Blakes and The Shackeltons. Tickets are available now.

Every Monday-Friday, we deliver a different song as part our Song of the Day podcast subscription. The podcast features exclusive in-studio performances, unreleased songs, and recordings from independent musicians that KEXP DJs think you should hear, along with songs from more well-known artists.

All this week we’re featuring artists that will be performing at the John in the Morning at Night Birthday Bash. Today’s featured selection is from the 2006 self-titled album El Perro Del Mar:
