Tonight, the Rising Tide will play host to three amazing guests. The first of which is a band hailing from Santa Cruz called The Sacred Orchard.
This local folk quintet cites freak-folk luminaries like Akron/Family and Bon Iver as influences and has been gaining a quietly growing audience over the past year in the city. They’ll be performing at the SubRosa Infoshop and Cafe’s Benefit Show this Saturday night, but first they’ll stop by the studio to play some songs and talk about their experiences of being in a young and promising local band.
After that, we’ll be joined in the studio by Keith Petrocelli of Carry Yrself Home.
This will be Keith’s second time coming on the show, and as expected of one of Santa Cruz’s busiest music personalities, he has a whole host of shows to come on the air to talk about. Not only that, but we’ll also be talking to Keith about his involvement with booking The Rio Theatre in 2011, and what future projects he has in store for the city of Santa Cruz.
But Keith won’t be alone when he comes on air this friday night, for joining him on air to talk about the two nearly-sold-out-already shows taking place next week, is The Album Leaf.
The Album Leaf’s take on folk and indie rock is as diverse in it’s instrumentation as it is profound and appealing in it’s quality. Never afraid to incorporate live electronics and loops into his music, The Album Leaf fall along a similar line of modern musicians such as múm and Eluvium, while the San Diego-born Jimmy LaValle has made Santa Cruz his home in the last few years. A pair of upcoming hot-ticket shows at the Crepe Place attests to his ever-constant popularity and prowess.
Be sure to join me in welcoming The Album Leaf into our studio at KZSC tonight to ask about his forthcoming projects, his experiences as a globetrotting musician, and to talk about what makes these two shows at the Crepe so special and so explicitly local.
These and much more when you tune into KZSC Santa Cruz tonight at 8:30 pm for the FIRST Rising Tide of the new year!
