Listen The Local Show for June 9, 2013
Jun 9, 2013 Join David Campbell as he explores Minnesota's local music scene, both past and present. Featuring rare songs, live tracks, and in-studio performances.
On this weekend's episode, David Campbell will be joined in the studio by Har Mar Superstar. The Minneapolis/LA/NY musician is bringing along his band to perform songs off the new record Bye Bye 17, a more funk and soul oriented direction than his work in the past. It's out now on Julian Casablanca's Cult Records.
Stacy Schwartz will also drop in to talk about the music line-up for the upcoming Stone Arch Bridge Festival, and she'll share some of the acts she's most anticipating to see.
Andrea Swensson will also report on her Current Presents airing after The Local Show Sunday night. It's all about local musicians and healthcare in light of big stories that broke this past year on Slim Dunlap and P.O.S. She'll also talk about an upcoming show in Minneapolis with Neon and Ruben, two bands she discovered down at this year's Mid West Music Fest.
And we'll check in with the H2 guys, Kevin Beacham and Siddiq. They've got a brand new track from rising producer Psymun. All that and tons of new music from the likes of Charlie Parr, Monica LaPlante, Bella Ruse, Marijuana Deathsquads, Kitten Forever and more.
