Live Video: Ride

We could think of no better band to close out the live room at KEXP’s Dexter and Denny studio than legendary shoegazers Ride.

Live Review: Ride at Neptune Theatre 11/16

It was a show most of us have been waiting 25 years for. It took the anniversary of their 1990 debut, Nowhere, to get Ride back together, and thankfully the boys made it very worth the wait.

KEXP at the OFF Festival: Day 4, Part 1: The Porcelain Factory, and I sound odd

It’s Day 4 with KEXP at the OFF Festival, and I’ve had some tie too think and absorb all this Polishness. Linguistically and culturally my coming back to Poland has been a wonderful revelation.
