New Quarter!!! New Stuff!!!

Hey all,

It's been a while since we've updated this here blog. To be honest... We've neglected it. Neglected it like a redheaded stepchild.

Some things SHOULD be neglected...

But we're back and better than ever! We've regained our ability to host live musical guests on the show and have also configured the show's format away from it's new indie rock/lo-fi rock theme towards one that is more keyed in on playing local music and bay area music on top of playing music of artists who are passing through town.

That's right folks, the likes of Matador, Mountain Animal Hospital and Sleepy Sun played alongside The Fresh & Onlys, Beulah, Deerhoof and whatever else under the sun happens to fit in with that week's vibe.

Last week, we did not have a live local guest (something we'll rectify this week, hopefully), but we did air a pair of interviews conducted with touring artsts as they passed through Santa Cruz. The first was with Baths, an upcoming electronic dance artist from the LA area who is playing the Crepe Place TONIGHT with El Ten Eleven and Sister Crayon. The second interview was with Tokyo Police Club, who played at the Rio Theatre this past Thursday and whose keyboardist, Graham Wright, graciously gave us a bit of his time before taking the stage. We should have both interviews up sometime soon for your own listening pleasure!

We also have a pair of new DJs who have joined the collective: Juan and Aaron! They'll be posting on the blog sometime soon (hopefully) and, until then, keep an eye out on the blog for further updates concerning The Rising Tide on KZSC (every Friday night from 8:30pm until 10:30pm on 88.1fm or!!!
