When I was twelve years old, I couldn’t help but be disappointed. The reason was not because I had just moved to a new area, nor because I hadn’t received my acceptance letter to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, nor because I was a chubby, awkward, redheaded girl who was in middle school. No, it was because my mutant powers had failed to develop. Read more
This has been an insanely busy week, but we here at the Rising Tide are working to provide you the best in local music programming, as well as spotlighting a different independent artist live in the studio each and every week.
For tonight’s (11/19) Artist Spotlight, we’ll be hosting SLO’s very own Morgan Enos, a solo artist who performs under the monicker sea birds.
Morgan’s take on slow-burning electric folk music exemplifies his talents as a promising singer-songwriter, one whose songs have a depth to them that is impossible to write off as deliberately minimalist or simplistic. We’re very fortunate to have sea birds grace our studio, and you should tune in this Friday night to hear from the SLO native, as well as hear him play a couple of tune on-air.
Also, there will be plenty more in store on tonight’s episode of The Rising Tide.
Who doesn’t remember Old and In The Way? “Midnight Moonlight”? Peter Rowan has a bluegrass and rock & roll pedigree. He was the lead singer for Bill Monroe before hippie culture; he worked with David Grisman in the band Earth Opera then joined Old and In the Way with Dawg and Jerry “Spud” Garcia. Still playing and writing great music, Peter Rowan comes back to Don Quixote’s in Felton to showcase a new CD, “Legacy” and play old favorites too. Who knows? Maybe “Panama Red” will be back in town. Peter Rowan performs Thursday, December 2nd. Showtime is 7:30 pm.
Swedish House Mafia get down on it. Pop with soul? Surely you jest! Plus enough booty shakin’ bass for anyone to dig on.
Check the new cd: it’s hot, and masterfully mixed.
Enough said, shut up and dance:
Oliver’s his name. Sex, Dope and Cheap Thrills is his game…or show. Oliver Kopitz has been influenced by music that was made before he was born: The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane and of course Big Brother & The Holding Company. In fact his show’s title was the original title of their album that became known as “Cheap Thrills.” To make the program even more authentic, Oliver spins nothing but the good ol’ 33 1/3 RPM LPs. His show has been on less than a year but KZSC listeners love it. Literally. One person filling out our listener survey said, “I want to have Oliver’s babies”.
Find out why Oliver is so popular-tune in Wednesday mornings from 9 to noon on KZSC.
