First: big thanks to everyone who helped KFAI reach the spring pledge drive goal, and all members of community radio all year. You rock. Second: Tosca’s new album was put out today. We also had the boys set with Pet Shop and Junior Boys. That new Junior Boys record is synthesizer deeelightful. Also new local The Evening Rig.
