2-24-09 playlist

Rotating Tongues:2 was a roaring success this weekend and a reminder that Boise has as many or more vital bands than it has at any other point. I saw many new bands for the first time like ATTN, Nollifur and Juntura who I hope to get into the mix soon. It was cool to see the older guys who had been on the original comp rock as hard as young kids like La Knots (who's set the first night ruled). Self proclaimed “elder statesman” of the scene John O'Neil led his eL Dopamine through a blistering set the first night that set the bar high for the rock the followed both nights. I don't want to mention too many more things because the bands and the performances were uniformly awesome. What does this have to do with my radio show you ask? Well, this weekend reaffirmed the need for a show like mine and locally programmed community radio in general... With so many great artists playing original music in the valley there needs to be as many venues as possible for their music to get heard and create excitement about their performances.

This week’s show has one new-to-us band, an old Boise punk/new wave band called The Ticks. The tracks were sent to me by someone and Mr. Bonefish Sam confirmed that it was a Boise 7" release. Enjoy!
