Audioasis is KEXP’s long running local music show. John Richards invited 3 very smart, talented, and informed local hosts to form the Audioasis crew. They are Lisa Wood, Sean Nelson and Abe Beeson. Between the four hosts they are able to deliver three hours of local and live bands from all areas and genres of the Northwest. Audioasis is the source for Seattle bands… You’ll hear the new, the old, the demos, the vinyl and the future of music. As we all know, music always starts in Seattle.

Live Video: Wampire

Visually, Wampire are a throwback to the 70’s: button-downs with big collars opened at the top, sunglasses, long and wavy hair. If you didn’t know what year it was, you might think the Doobie Brothers just stepped out of the Mystery Mobile. Musically, Wampire proves worthy of their indie buzz.
