One of the exclusive live performances on Live at KEXP Volume 3 comes from the always-amazing Ghostland Observatory, who continually blow audiences away at their live shows — and many KEXP listeners know it, as the Austin band has performed several KEXP events and in-studios over the past few years.
Here’ what Morning Show host John Richards had to say about first witnessing Ghostland Observatory’s live act:
“It’s rare when you see a band actually PERFORM in an in-studio like they are in front of 10,000 people but that’s Ghostland. We had heard how amazing they were live so we booked em for our NYC remote and about 20 listeners came by to witness a cross between Prince, Willie Nelson and James Brown make love to an in-studio session. Seriously. Their performance blew everyone away and Cheryl and I looked at each other and mouthed “BBQ” and booked them right there. The following summer, in the hot summer sun they showed 2,000 people what blew us away in NYC. That night they parked their van in the station parking lot and stayed at the hotel next door so that they could come back the next day to play another live in-studio. Somehow that was even better.”
