Each and every week on the Rising Tide we’re striving to bring you the best and brightest in local music.
On tonight’s program, we’ll be hearing from Britt Govea and the rest of FolkYeah! productions. Britt and co. have, in recent years, established themselves as a linchpin in Nor Cal’s indie rock, psychedelic rock and (naturally) folk circles.
They’ve brought the likes of Animal Collective, the Arcade Fire, Bert Jansch, Dirty Projectors and Cat Power to our neck of the woods, and has also featured local artists such as Mountain Animal Hospital and Sleepy Sun in their shows. FolkYeah!’s booking of the Brookdale Lodge has turned it into a local music hotspot. Tune in to hear Britt and co. talk about FolkYeah, it’s recent run of successful shows in and around the Santa Cruz area, and perhaps some interesting news concerning the Dean Wareheim (Galaxie 500) show at Don Quixote’s next Friday night…
Also, The Rising Tide will play host this week to Santa Cruz’s very own Grizzel Toe.
Born from the ashes of one of SC’s most exciting bands, Grizzel Toe re-emerged this summer with a slew of new songs. Make no mistake about Grizzle Toe, these Sonic Youth disciples will be coming in to the studio tonight not only to talk about their new project and about their upcoming show at the Crepe Place on November 10th with Salesman and Writer, but also to play a few of their brand new songs.
Tune in tonight at 8:30 for these and much more on The Rising Tide!
