Very exciting news to report: Matthew and Dorota ie MATADOR are releasing their first record! To celebrate, there will be a big ole shabang at The Church house with performances from Beat Beat Whisper, Pale Robin, and Casey Guitar Band. Oh, and of course the birthday babies. Yum! Come out and support cute people making great music!
For those of you not in Santa Cruz, Matador is going to be taking off on a tour very soon, so if you’re in Nebraska, Iowa, Colorado, Oregon, Washington, ETC. you should go see them.
Mary McCaslin and Steve Palazzo will be playing live on Backroads from Noon-2pm this coming Sunday, April 11. Mary is a folk singer extraordinaire (and former KZSC DJ!) and has returned home to Santa Cruz after completing a national tour. She’ll be joined by Steve Palazzo, local flatpicking guitar guru and singer with the bluegrass band Homefire. They’re both participating in the Fiddling Cricket Acoustic music series at The Ugly Mug in Soquel next week.
Big news for UC students: Dani, host of Lost Minds and Found Sound, is going to be throwing a gaggle of free shows on campus next quarter. This is supppppper exciting for us and for you. And thanks to our secondary audio stream, we’ll be able to broadcast all of that goodness from us directly to you!
The first show is going to be January 16th at 7pm. Details are coming up, but we can tell you that LITTLE TEETH are going to be playing. Check their space: http://www.myspace.com/littleteethmusic. I’ve been a big fan of Little Teeth for quite a while now, so this is suuuuper exciting. I saw them play in NY (remember this?) and they were wonderful, so please, if you’re student, plan on making this!
Also, local bands? KZSC really wants to show off all the amazing local music we have here in Santa Cruz.
So, if you’re a band and want to play contact Dani (firstname.lastname@example.org)
