A Big Day
Harry Shearer was in the Capital Public Radio studios
Show to the entire world. I managed to snag a
few moments to talk about his program on KCRW (the Santa
Monica radio station that 10 years ago helped me realize indie rock
can thrive on public radio).
Then of course came Marnie Stern, bassist/vocalist Nithin Kalvakota
and drummer Vince Rogers (and Marnie's dog, Fig).
In the show this week: Why DOESN'T someone make another MTV? Marnie
talks wordplay, philosophy and working with Zach Hill and what now
that her tour with Tera Melos is over.
UPDATE!!! Off Air & CPR made it
on Marnie's Vagina Monoblog!

Sea of Bees + SXSW + NPR
It wasn't THAT long ago Julie Ann Bee and Co. dropped in for their Off Air / In Studio performance. Since then NPR has been all abuzz about the Sacramento band and recently shot a rather intimate video of five piece in Austin during SXSW.
Of course you can find more videos of Sea of Bees in-studio
performances at Off Air's YouTube Channel. I have
been clamoring to attend SXSW for years. Last year that fervor was
renewed when I saw a youtube video of Bill Murray, RZA & GZA
tending (re: Taking Over a) bar.
This year Horse Cops busted people outside the Death From Above
1979 reunion show and great new movies premiered but there are some
that think SXSW is getting a bit … commercial.
