First off, big thanks to both Earth and I’m A Gun for coming out last week and hangin’ with DJ Hannah Levin. As always, you can revisit those great performances by heading to the 14-day Streaming Archive. Best of luck to Earth as they’re about embark on a tour of the Midwest and East Coast.

Looking ahead to tomorrow night’s Audioasis, we’ve got DJ Lisa Wood hosting the atmospheric folk pop of Kim Virant (6PM) and the fun-loving psychedelia of Half Acre Day (8PM).

Kim Virant will start things off, now representing her latest and greatest, Songs From A Small House. After her success with Lazy Susan in the ’90s and a smooth transition to solo work, Virant teamed up with producer/musician Pete Droge (The Thorns) and has come up with a great combo of traditional folk/country elements with modern twists and cutting edge lyricism.

Seattle quintet Half Acre Day joins us in support of their latest, 2007s Fourteen Trips Around the Sun. Half catchy and anthemic indie rock, half harmonic and psychedelic noodling, Half Acre Day are here to show their worth and why you should join them for more audio/visual stimulation Sunday night at the High Dive. So once again, for a no-brainer approach to jumpstarting your Saturday night, look no further than Audioasis.

    Half Acre Day kicked butt! It’d be great to hear more of them.
