    • Paul Slavens

      hey thanks for all those suggestions, cant wait to start diggin them all up.
      keep it coming.

  • Spillway, Heard them a couple weeks ago in Denton. Mostly Dallas guys now in Seattle. Two Horses and School Bus City ringing in my head. These guys put on a great show. Great find.

  • Darryl

    or play anything off the scape records label. “Download” or “Pole”

    What you are playing now is super nice. Not sure what it is but man its good.

  • Ray Worth

    The Belle Brigade, Betty Soo, Damh the Bard or Procol Harum (please not the 2 songs commercial radio beat to death).

  • Darryl

    Scape = Deadbeat or Pole. Download is Cevin Key which is a little more intense.

  • Darryl

    TuneYards and M83 are playing FunFunFunFest as well. Really dig those bands.

  • Darryl

    Man a remake of All We Ever Wanted. Greatness

  • Sydney H

    Hey Paul, this is the first time I’ve caught the show and I love it! I don’t know if you’ve heard of them, but a really good local band is Telegraph Canyon. I first heard them at Casa Mañana opening for Dawes (also really good) and they were fantastic. Their song “Low” would probably have to be my favorite. Oh, and you should check out the Decemberists album Hazards of Love. All of the songs run together to create one long piece if you listen to them in order (but it’s separated individually on iTunes). Two of my favorites are “Isn’t It A Lovely Night?” and “Hazards of Love 4 (The Drowned)”; they sound like they would fit well with the mix tonight.

  • Sunny

    Indigo Children- Puscifer
    Meds- Placebo
    Crystalized- The xx

    Nice show.

    • Paul Slavens

      thanks for all the great ideas and suggestions

      as for the Dead Kennedys… well , its better to hear something and know for yourself.

  • Seth

    Thanks for playing songs by all the great local musicians. I really like the St Vincent!

    I really like “The Tallest Man On Earth” He’s that young Scandinavian Bob Dylan torch-bearer. His songs “The Gardener” and “King of Spain” are inspiring.

    Here are a few old school song suggestions that help me feel hopeful:
    The New Radicals – Mother We Just Can’t Get Enough
    Frou Frou – Breathe In
    Hedwig And The Angry Inch – Wig In A Box

  • Josh smith
