Holy moly, what a week we’ve had here at the Podcast. We celebrated the launch of the new website by hitting the shows hard in Portland, among them: American Aquarium, Patterson Hood, Jayke Orvis and James Hunicutt and, of course, the usual smattering of top-notch local acts that we love to support.
The weekend wrapped with an incredible evening at Root Jack’s CD Release. The band was in top form, as was the crowd. Great stuff. Needed all of Sunday to recover from that one. Mercy.
This week on the podcast we’re airing for the first time a performance and interview that Eric recorded in The Helm with Morgan Geer of Drunken Prayer. Morgan returned to his former hometown to play some shows celebrating the release of his new record, House of Morgan, out now on Fluff & Gravy Records. He’s joined here by his lovely bride Christa, who shares some sweet backing vocals on a couple of very nice tunes. We think you’re gonna dig it, naturally.
The show also features plenty of brand new music from some of our favorites. We have a new songs from soon-to-be-released records by Lydia Loveless, Scott H Biram and The Low Bones. Also, a song from local boys The Resolectics, who will be featured at our next Podcast showcase show on Feb. 13 at the Alberta Street Pub.
So thanks for dialing in!
