Thanks to Engine Studios for their hosting KEXP’s broadcast from Chicago this week — they couldn’t have been more generous and hospitable — and thanks to all the Chicago area listeners who came out to the listener party and the broadcast. We also want to thank the terrific bands who donated their own time, often very early in the day, to perform live for us. And most especially, we want to thank all of the many volunteers who spent hours with us updating the playlist, managing paperwork, running for food, greeting visitors, transcribing interviews, photographing and filming the bands, is so many other necessary tasks. And a big thanks to Tobias Cortese, who organized them all!
Here are a few photos of the KEXP and Engine staff, volunteers, and visitors:
Next, we’re headed to the Pitchfork Music Festival today and tomorrow. KEXP will broadcast live sets from Caribou, Fleet Foxes, Dizzee Rascal, !!!, Vampire Weekend, Spiritualized, and many others. Check out the full list and broadcast times here.
