Don’t forget KZSC has two audio streams running all the time. The older Main Stream is our live broadcast for web listeners, however the often neglected and misunderstood younger Side Stream has its good points too – tons of great music and unusual soundscapes not found anywhere else. We try not to play favorites with our two streams, but perhaps you will. Check them both out by clicking on “LISTEN NOW” to your right.
Santa Cruz is home to a number of venues, but one venue in particular has played host to more incredible shows during my time living in this town, and that is the Crepe Place. There are many figures who help run the show at The Crepe, but none are more prominent than Keith Petrocelli of Carry Yrself Home.
Having produced several local festivals over the year, and bookings shows running the gamut from Abe Vigoda to Judgment Day to Deer Tick to Wavves, Keith will be our first guest this upcoming Friday night, where he’ll sit down in our little treehouse in the mountains to discuss several upcoming CYH shows, talk about his history in the Santa Cruz local music scene, and just generally chill out.
After that, we’ll be featuring an interview with LA’s own HoneyHoney.
This folk-rock duo is getting set to tackle The Catalyst on Monday, August 16th, as they open for Xavier Rudd. As a hard-working touring band, be sure to tune in and listen to hear what this So. Cal. act has to say about Santa Cruz, their experiences on the road, and what challenges await them.
BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!
For it’s my pleasure to inform you all that Oakland’s own Mouse Heaven will be our musical guests of the evening.
This bay area quartet’s take on folk music is at times haunting, but always engaging. They aren’t afraid to openly shift styles, going from slow-paced ballads to driving lo-fi fuzz rock in a matter of 2 to 3 songs. Also, Mouse Heaven were voted in to play at the Free For All festival in Los Angeles (on August 15th) where they’ll be playing alongside such talent as Akron/Family, Active Child and Langhorn Slim.
Tune in this Friday night for this AND MORE on The Rising Tide! Also, make sure to pick up this week’s edition of The Good Times to read their feature on this radio show, as seen here!
Robyn is the best female voice in pop music today. And I am here to convert you if you believe otherwise.
Released in 2003, “Dub Side of the Moon” is a dub/reggae tribute to the 1973 Pink Floyd album, “Dark Side of the Moon”. More than just capitalizing on the popularity of the original (claimed has sold more than 45 million copies), “Dub Side” was a natural fit for the reggae treatement. Filled with philosophical quotations, sound effects and great female backup singing, Floyd’s 8th studio album also moves at a pace not unlike the music of Jamaica. Easy Star All Star band members Ticklah and Michael G produced “Dub Side of the Moon” in 2003, including some twists such as the cash register opening and closing on “Money” changed to a man firing up a bong. Then there’s the oft-discussed “Dark Side of the Rainbow” effect-the supposed secret link between the the film “The Wizard of Oz” and “Dark Side of the Moon”. Easy All Stars made it easy to play along by including instructions on how to synchronize the album in their liner notes.
Check it out for yourself this morning on KZSC’s reggae program “All Fruits Ripe” when we will feature “Dub Side of the Moon” in its entirety.
Pure Ecstasy’s take on psychedelic lo-fi music is mesmerizing, while fellow Austinites Sleep Over will draw from their atmospheric sound collages in what’s sure to be an amazing show! Rounding out the bill are the bay area’s own Young Prisms, a group who are gunning to break out of the region with their stunning live show. This event is FREE, All Ages, and will begin at 7pm sharp!
Surf City Billiards can be found at 931 Pacific Avenue.
