This week on AIRWAVES was relatively chill. After not being on the air the previous Sunday I decided to play a mostly remixed show to get us back into the grind of things. Coincidentally, I didn’t even realize that this coming week was Reading Week so I’ll be off for another fourteen days. It was a decent show though – with the Vancouver based alternative/indie band “Said the Whale” being my featured artist. Said the Whale is playing a show with Stars this March so if you enjoyed the tunes I’d definitely recommend checking it out (you’d probably like Stars too).
I also talked about what makes a good mix (songs you both like, songs that bring you back to good times, good lyrics) and I had some music from Vampire Diaries and Grey’s Anatomy (Daughter and Youth Lagoon). It’s sort of funny because I’m moving away from shows I actually watch …going to try to change that I think.
Notable show dates coming up:
Passion Pit + Matt & Kim – February 16
Stars + Said the Whale – March 21
Alt J – March 27
Local Natives – March 28
*The XX just announced a tour with Grizzly Bear!
I also did some talking about cool festivals going on and forgot to mention the “Gentlemen of the Road” tour. This features Edward Sharpe, Mumford, Hey Rosetta, and more! It’s sold out but if you want to try to get some tickets from other sources I’m sure you could find some for a little bit more money.
