Miniature Show Update Alert Alert Alert! (#2)
(Featuring a quick rundown of recent stuff I’ve seen / done.)
In a new-ish segment to our program, I decided to rundown the rocktacular weekend of amazing music that I got to experience. Up first: the 17th of May at The Doug Fir, with none other than the incredible Man… Or Astro-Man? Their show was incredible, and lived up to the quality of performance that they delivered two years ago, when they also dropped by Portland for a sort of “best-of” performance. This time, they have new material, a new guitar player, and new releases! This mini-show contains three tracks from their new 7″s releases by Chunklet Industries, that I picked up at the show. Enjoy!
I also go on to plug the marathon day of radio on the 18th of May, where I appeared in seven out of 8 hours of radio on KPSU. In that span of time, I managed to cover Ricardo Wang’s What’s This Called?, delivering a two-part audio essay, and ran sound for three bands: Gaytheist, Sweat Lodge & No Bone. In that time, I got to hang with Tunacan Jones, Jonathon Boober, and Miss Rikki Lee. During that time, I got to include a number od DJ selections, and ran sound for all the bands. It was a pretty crazy day, and I had a great time. Links and posts are forthcoming, but in the meantime I wanted to blab about it, so here you go.
I also close the show with a little solo jam, just me and my pedal.
Short and to the point. Just like some radio should be.
