Coming up this Saturday, October 13th, Audioasis is pleased to host two local bands that make music for your ears! The Dimes from Portland and Throw Me The Statue from Seattle with your host, Audioasis Assistant Producer Sharlese Metcalf.

Melodic sweet guitars over gorgeous voices and phenomenal lyrics define The Dimes. From Portland Oregon, this band has made quite the impact with their latest release The Silent Generation. If I have to say so myself, it’s going on my local top 10 and currently is in high rotation in my iPod. Their songs are written from historical content and have very intellectual writing behind them. Be sure to listen in on The Dimes LIVE at 6pm.


At 8pm Scott Reitherman a.k.a. Throw Me The Statue will be LIVE on Audioasis. Moonbeams is the name of the latest record and besides it being quite the candy for the ears, worthy of a top NW 10 spot, the record is also great to listen to at parties! Bedroom electropop, dashed with sing-a-long songs and a beat, this for sure is a performance that you do not want to miss. Audioasis is on every Saturday, 6-9pm.

Throw Me The Statue – Lolita (MP3)

The Dimes – Paul Kern Can’t Sleep (MP3)
