KDHX has tons of amazing musicians come through for in-studio performances, but to-date, I haven’t met a nicer musician than Daedelus. The LA producer dropped in for a performance for Beep Beep Boop Boop and crafted a dizzying playlist for a lucky few attendees and as one of them, I was completely fascinated with his craft. Check out some shots from session below after the jump.
KDHX (and Collector’s Edition) was thrilled to have Gogol Bordello stop by this afternoon for a rowdy in-studio session and interview. Their tour rolls through The Pageant tonight, so head on down to the Loop!
Be sure to head over to the KDHX website for a first look at pictures and we’ll be back here later with more photos and a recap.
When I showed up a little early for an in-studio, the Brooklyn group People Get Ready was breaking down from their set and wrapping up an interview with Christian Schaeffer for Collector’s Edition. The video crew was raving about how great the session was, so be on the lookout for it on KDHX in the upcoming weeks. In the meantime, enjoy this unique group shot!
Before his set at Off Broadway last month, Hayes Carll stopped by KDHX to record an in-studio session for Christian Schaeffer’s show Collector’s Edition. The set is up (“Wild as a Turkey” / “The Magic Kid”) and stream for free now, so go forth and check it out. Check out some extra shots from the session below.
Prior to her performance at Off Broadway, Tift Merritt visited the KDHX studios for a stripped down acoustic set for Collector’s Edition, which included “Travelling Alone” and “Sweet Spot.” Go forth and stream the performance for free on KDHX’s website, and enjoy some shots from the session below.
It was a quick evening. Three songs from the Peabody Opera House wing. (No shots of co-headliner Matt & Kim to bring back unfortunately.) Fortunately singer Michael Angelakos and the rest of Passion Pit packed in enough energy during the short time to make it an enjoyable shoot.
During their co-headlining tour with Yo La Tengo, members of Calexico stopped by the KDHX studios to record a stellar 3-song set for the station. I’m pretty partial to their cover of “Frank’s Tavern,” but it’s all worth checking out, with additional commentary by singer Joey Burns. Head over to the KDHX website and stream the session for free and then check out some extra shots from the event below.
When the band Scattered Trees disbanded, a trio of members moved forward to form ON AN ON. Rolling through St. Louis on their tour opening for Geographer, the Chicago/Minneapolis band stopped by KDHX for an interview on Gold Soundz and to record two live tracks (“Ghosts” / “Cops”).
The session is now available online for your listening enjoyment, so go forth and stream! And after you’re done, be sure to check out some additional pictures from their session below.
