First off, thank you to everyone who has donated and volunteered here at KEXP during our Spring Membership Drive! KEXP and Audioasis would not be possible without listeners like yourself. Click here to make a donation to KEXP today!
This week we’re back at the Sunset Tavern in Ballard with Hannah Levin and special co-host Troy Nelson, bringing you dynamic live sets from Erik Blood and The Redwood Plan. Each month for the Audioasis live broadcast, one local charity is chosen as the event’s beneficiary. This month, that charity is Taproot Foundation, which enables business professionals to donate their skills to help nonprofits with their marketing, human resources, strategy management, and technology needs.
Erik Blood (6:30PM) is a producer and member of Seattle band The Turn-ons. “The Way We Live” is the first complete album of his solo sounds. Erik’s songs are about everything that happens to us, whether we like it or not. “Everything I love about music now, I learned to love as a child,” says Blood. The idea is to have fun.
The Redwood Plan (8PM) are bursting onto the Seattle music scene with riffs and hooks to make you move. The Redwood Plan features vocalist/keyboardist/guitarist Lesli Wood, best known as the charismatic frontperson of Ms. Led, along with bassist Jamie Hellgate (H is for Hellgate), guitarist Sydney Stolfuss, and drummer Betty ST. Wood brings her high-energy showmanship and in-your-face lyrics to The Redwood Plan’s groove-heavy stylings.
The music madness will continue long into the night with the genre-bending sounds of The Beats, Man, throwback garage rock from The Hands, and Sleepy Eyes Of Death close out the night with pulsing electronic melodies. More info here.
