This Hisses joined me in the studio to discuss their album release show at the Pyramid on July 23rd, and to play some of the songs from Surf Noir live. [Speaking of which, UMFM's Live Sessions page is now up, and features This Hisses and more!].
I was joined on the phone by Justin Olynyk, Fringe-fest phenom, who gave us the low-down on the early goings of the fest. And while I had hoped to talk to The Burning Hell, a robbery and assault in Eastern Europe while on tour meant they were talking to the police instead of me. Instead, I spoke to Dean Tzenos of Odonis Odonis prior to that band's show at the LO Pub on July 18th.
This Friday (August 22nd) I'll be talking to Charlotte Cornfield prior to her July 28th appearance at the Times Change(d). Justin Olynyk will be back with Fringe Fest wrap-up giving us his best (and the rest) of the fest. And I'll be talking to Rob Rousseau about all the great music he's got planned for Islendingadagurinn this August long.
