The last couple of times I was in New Orleans, I saw a flyer tacked to a light pole and taped in a window for a group called the Zydepunks. Cajun, Irish, Jewish Punk is what accompanied the hand-drawn Social Distortion-like skeleton on the flyer. And each time they had already played, and I was seeing an old flyer. I took a picture of one, thinking one day I might actually catch this local NOLA band. Now I don’t have to wait until my next visit! KFAI got their debut record this week! I was so excited to share it during the 7:00 hour. We also heard Joseph Arthur and brand new Pert’ Near Sandstone. See you next week on pledge drive!
Fresh as fresh can be…roots and dubs from around the globe. New releases tonight included: Renegade Rocker from Dubmatix; Anarchy Alchemy from Dub Gabriel; and the Swiss Dub Vol.1 EP from Master Margherita (on MikelaBella Records).
Pop Wagner stopped in this morning with his new album with the Twin City Playboys. He was fresh off a packed weekend with an old tyme concert, a morning family show at the Ginkgo, a night of more live music, and a Sunday afternoon cinch-making class.
