Listen The Local Show for October 5, 2014
Oct 5, 2014 Join David Campbell as he and the Local Team explore Minnesota's local music scene, both past and present.
This week on The Local Show, you'll meet traveling troubadour Ben Weaver, who's singing and songwriting are regularly (and deservedly) compared to both Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen. Ben will stop by to spin a few cuts from his latest I Would Rather Be A Buffalo, which is out October 10th via fledgling label, and used vinyl specialists, Hymie's Vintage Records. He'll also tell us about his upcoming national tour from Minneapolis down to New Orleans ... by bicycle!
We'll also check in with reporters Jay Gabler and Andrea Swensson for the latest from the Local Current Blog, including October artist of the month Bob Dylan, Doomtree Blowout X, and the release party at Paisley Park for Prince's two new albums.
Most importantly, you'll hear debuts from Rhymesayers rapper Prof, high schoolers Stereo Confession, Ecid, blues legend Dave "Snaker" Ray, Totally Gross National Product's RONiiA, Brian Laidlaw and the Family Trade, and a song first album in 7 years by psych pop assassins Basement Apartment.
