Running from work, I made it to the KDHX studios just seconds before the red recording light lit up, so unfortunately I wasn’t able to capture the setup going into Basia Bulat‘s fantastic in-studio session (now available for streaming on the KDHX website). Fortunately, I was able to snap a few shots of Bob Odenkirk’s favorite musician, which you can feel free to check after the jump while you’re enjoying live renditions of “Tall Tall Shadow,” “Promise Not to Think About Love” and “Wires.”
Part performance, part Q&A, all heart. That’s how I’d describe the unique in-store put on by The Lone Bellow and Vintage Vinyl. I was bummed to miss their set at the Old Rock House later that evening, but the acoustic renditions of new and old material certainly made up for it. Enjoy some shots from their visit after the jump!
After seeing Escondido own the Off Broadway stage over the summer with Lord Huron, I was pretty thrilled to hear that Collector’s Edition had invited the pair of Tyler James and Jessica Maros (now with a full band) over to KDHX for an in-studio performance. The session is now streaming for free on the KDHX website and feel free to check out a selection of shots from their time at the station.
Certainly no stranger to this city, Deer Tick took some time before their show at The Firebird and sent over members John McCauley and Ian O’Neil over to Vintage Vinyl for an acoustic in-store performance. Featuring songs from their recent release Negativity, the pair celebrated the afternoon with the large crowd, which incidentally contained possibly some of the youngest Deer Tick fans who happily sung along.
Over the Rhine, the husband/wife duo of Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist, stopped by the KDHX studios to record three stripped-down tracks (Gonna Let My Soul Catch My Body / Earthbound Love Sound / Sacred Ground) for listeners. The set is now up and streaming at the KDHX Soundcloud site and while you take a listen, be sure to check out some pictures from the event below.
The last time we saw The Lumineers in town, they had sold out Blueberry Hill and we knew it was probably the last time to see them in such an intimate venue. This time around, the group landed a spot headlining Chaifetz Arena but still kept things personal, eventually abandoning the chandelier-adorned main stage for a smaller stage on the floor. Along for the show were the equally impressive Dr. Dog and Nathaniel Rateliff.
Even though they’ve grown from playing Blueberry Hill to the Pageant barely within the span of these last two years, The Head and the Heart returned Vintage Vinyl for their second performance/signing (pictures from the first in-store here). Many late lunches were taken in St. Louis, as a large crowd gathered in the record store to catch a fantastic stripped-down set from members of the Seattle group (Josiah, Charity, Jonathan).
