KEXP powers Pela!

Our Summer Membership Drive starts today! We’re pretty excited to be asking you to support independent music and public radio. Your gift has such a huge impact! Not just on your ability to listen to the music you love whenever you want, but also on the musicians who create it and the wider community that benefits from it.

Brooklyn band Pela, have been huge supporters of KEXP and have performed many KEXP benefits, including tonight’s John In The Morning At Night event. The guys even brought four brand new songs to KEXP’s studio this very morning. Here are two of them, “Augustine” and “East Los Angeles”:

And the relationship is completely reciprocal. Here’s what a couple band members from Pela had to say about what KEXP means to them:


“KEXP is an amazing connection between bands and music appreciators. I keep using the term ‘Music Soldiers.’ You guys are Music Soldiers.”


“KEXP represents music community to me. It’s something that is really hard to find in a small town and it easily gets lost in big cities. It is incredibly rewarding to do any work with you guys because I know people are listening. I know they are listening for good reasons and I know that what you guys are doing is above and beyond. It makes me proud to be working with you guys.”

Please power KEXP today by making a gift of support! Your support makes a real difference — in your life, in the lives of the musicians you love, and in the broader community. Thank you!

    Amazing. Will this be coming out as a KEXP Live Performance Podcast?

    Why is the Augustine video private?
