Andrew Jackson Jihad + Hard Girls + Dogbreth at the Rio Theatre 7/29

Acoustic-punk heroes Andrew Jackson Jihad don’t like jerks — just ask the handbill for their upcoming Santa Cruz show. On Tuesday, July 29th, the whip-smart antifolk troubadours stop at the Rio Theatre for an all-ages gig with post-punk trio Hard Girls and “pup-punk” sextet Dogbreth. This lineup should raise DIY hell and cannot be missed. Plus, you’re likely to find many of our loyal staffers there to witness the madness and probably hand out some KZSC stickers n’ other media while we’re at it! For more information or tickets, check out riotheatre.com, but until then, rock out in your dreams!!!

The new album by Thee Oh Sees has been charting very well at KZSC since it arrived in the mail. Thee Oh Sees have always gotten a lot of love from KZSC djs, and this album is an amazing addition to their already outstanding body of work. Here’s a super cool song off of their album entitled King’s Nose:

Jazz Charts and Adds: Last Week of June

As it is apparently, all goods things must come to an end. Lucky for us at KZSC, things are just starting to heat up for the jazz and blues department thanks to some great adds and tunes. Most notable, the latest album Trios Live Nonesuch from American saxophonist Joshua Redman. And soccer fans are not the only ones looking towards Brazil (or the “South American way”) around this time. The department has been getting some wonderful bossa nova music to satisfy your cool jazz needs. Keep it cool, Santa Cruz.
