As you may or may not know, this week is KZSC's fall pledge drive. This is the one time of the year where the little radio station in the forest asks folks like you to give what you can to our radio station and, in return, we'll send you guys some cool gifts ranging from KZSC t-shirts to CDs of your favorite artists and even some tickets to shows in and around the Santa Cruz area.
Also, we at the Rising Tide have been busy at work preparing a show befitting such an important event for this Friday night.
Behold, the fruits of our labor!
First off, we managed to get an interview with one of the most promising Bay Area bands of the year, The Morning Benders, whose newest release Big Echo has earned the praise of critics both near and far.
DJ Rigmarole caught lead singer Chris Chu before the Morning Benders took the stage at the Rio Theatre last Friday night, and you'll be able to listen to hear what the indie rock frontman had to say about life, music, and whatever else was on his mind this Friday night at 8:30pm.
Also, last but certainly not least, this week's live local music spotlight will shine brightly on Santa Cruz's very own San Narciso.
The post-punk trio is in the midst of gearing up for the long-anticipated release of their debut EP, Friend Prices, which you can check out here at their BandCamp. The aforementioned release will take place this upcoming Sunday, October 24th at the Crepe Place where the bay area's own French Miami and XOXO will join San Narciso for some good jams with good people. But before then, San Narciso will come into KZSC's on-air studio to talk about Friend Prices and why you should be as excited as I am for it.
Tune in this Friday night for these and more on The Rising Tide. Tune in at 8:30pm and remember to pledge!
