Coming Up on Audioasis: 12/29

At 6 pm, Ian Moore and his band are making their live Audioasis debut. If you aren’t familiar with Ian, he’s a widely respected veteran singer and songwriter–and a transplant for Austin who made Seattle his home several years ago. He’s an obscenely talented, highly charismatic performer — the sort of fellow who can cause a packed house at the Tractor to fall silent. He’s also an intelligent, open-minded music fan with diverse tastes, claiming everything from Neutral Milk Hotel to NWA among his influences. Probably the two most interesting pieces of trivia about him are 1) he was the guitarist in Dwight Yokam’s band in Slingblade, and 2) Ice Cube directed one of his music videos many moons ago.

Ian has promoted it through his site, which has a pretty active international fanbase, so that means lots of online listeners, as well as our local regulars.

At around 7 pm, the lovely Kerri Harrop (a.k.a. DJ Cherry Canoe) will be joining me to spin music and do a little local year-in-review of 2007. Thanks to her deep connections, girlfriend’s always got all sorts of rarities up her sleeve, so there will definitely be some treats in store (confidential to Kerri — bring that Gutter Twins and/or live Lanegan stuff you played me the other night and I’ll be in your debt forever). You can and should check out Kerri’s popular (and beautifully written) blog over here.

At 8 pm, up-and-coming local punk outfit TacocaT will be live in the studios. We’ve all been spinning their excellent demo for the last few months (especially on Sonic Reducer and AO), and I’m looking forward to having those ladies come in. They recently put out a 7″ on Don’t Stop Believin’ Records (home to the Pleasureboaters and Team Gina). You can read and listen to more over here.

I also plan on recognizing the local musicians we lost this year (Slim McCarroll, Joe Crawford, and more) and will bust out as many “live from the Crocodile” recordings I can get my hands on.
