A Season in Hell #124: Touch Me I'm Sick!

What a week. You know, I'm never sick, EVER, but over the weekend I attended Wisdom 2.0, a conference that brings Mindfulness and business together. I wanted to see what they had to say about education. I'm a teacher by day, you know. Anyway, I'm at the Concourse Exhibition Center with about 1400 people, and you would think that these adults are all super healthy, with their yoga, and their kombucha. I got sick. WTF? I'm never sick, so I'm not taking this very well. One nostril gets clogged and it's all over for me. Hmm... I don't think I've ever actually typed the word nostril before, let alone written it out. Interesting. Nostril.

In the studio tonight I was super excited to had local alt-country-rockers Vandella stop by to share music from the recent release Fire in the Desert. They're one swell four piece. We talked about their influences, the writing process, who they like to play with, and what they have in store. The playlist that follows will show you the tunes we played. I'm loving "Mother Mississippi", by the way.

Noise Pop is this week, and I totally planned to have a show about it tonight, except I went to this conference over the weekend, and I GOT SICK! I ended up playing a few songs anyway. Enjoy them, and then go see some shows.

The second hour is a miss-mash, but it's totally worth your time. There's some old-school rap, soulful jazz, live prog-rock and some new Nick Cave.

It doesn't get any better than this. Really? Then shoot me. See you next week.

Support live, local music.
