St. Louis zine Acid Kat just collaborated with Fuzz City Records on the Summer of Fuzz cassette, a garage rock comp with some RAD bands including Part Time, White Mystery, and Chain & the Gang. There's a stream and more deetz up at Impose Magazine, and while you're at it, check out the Acid Kat Zine blog and see what people are doing to keep garage rock alive in the local community!
Last week, Water Liars stopped by and recorded an AWESOME set in our station. Due to technical difficulties (what's new) the session couldn't be broadcast live, but look forward to the session being replayed on-air soon! In the meantime, check out some trax on their website, http://misrarecords.com/artists/water-liars/ and check back for updates on when you can hear the session!
Winter can be quite a dead season for concerts in St. Louis, but the Spring concert schedule is shaping up to be aaawesome! Check out these sweet shows in the coming months:
YACHT: March 1 @ Plush – Last time I saw these guys they had a dance party with the entire crowd on stage, faked a video-chat in the middle of the show, and had a question and answer segment. Expect quirky dance music with plenty of crowd participation.
Bass Drum of Death: March 2 @ The Old Rock House – Fun, loud garage rock. They played every song at double speed at their last show in St. Louis, making their set only 30 minutes long, but twice as exciting.
Howler: March 9 @ The Old Rock House – If you didn't shell out the cash to go see Radiohead in St. Louis this night, you can catch Howler put on a show of summery surf rock.
Distant Worlds with the St. Louis Symphony: March 23-24 @ Powell – St. Louis Symphony is playing the music from Final Fantasy. If you were a video game kid like me, this is exciting.
The Hive Dwellers: March 27 @ The Luminary – Calvin Johnson of Beat Happening's current band with the other members constantly changing.
Mission of Burma: April 4 @ the Firebird – IS THIS THE BEST THING EVER OR WHAT? Super rockin' post punk doods, check out "Vs." if you're unfamiliar.
Shabazz Palaces: April 24 @ The Luminary – Ex-Digable Planet's MC's latest project with futuristic electronic beats.
Melvins: May 3 @ The Firebird – These guys ruuuuule. Sludgy, grungy rock famous for being a favorite of Kurt Cobain and Boris (named after a Melvins song).
