A stormy Tuesday morning started with the trumpet call of Hugh Masekela remixed on the second volume of the Verve//Remixed series, and ended with the contemplative clarinet of Dr.Michael White from his latest release, Blue Crescent. In between, we heard rock (like All Girl Summer Fun Band), laid back lounge-y music (The Postmarks), and even ska to get us up and out into the rain (The Selecter was On My Radio). We flow smoothly from one genre to another, featuring the best new music, on PWB.
“There comes a time when every man feels the urge to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and start slitting throats.”
— H.L. Mencken
(The quote above was lifted off the Bloodshot Records webpage. KFAI was a sponsor of Bloodshot’s 15th anniversary show Sunday at the Cedar, and to celebrate this event tonight we played music from our favorite Chicago label exclusively. Bands playing at the Minneapolis tour stop include Dean Waco backed by the Meat Purveyors, Ha Ha Tonka, the Deadstring Brothers, Bobby Bare Jr., the Bottle Rockets, and the Waco Brothers. It was a full house, a full day, and a GREAT time for all of us!)
