Join host Joe Kendrick Wednesday just after one p.m. for an interview with AC Entertainment's Ashley Capps who previews the upcoming Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit in Asheville NC this October. Capps, who also founded Bonnaroo, talks about how he attracted big names like Trent Reznor as well as got Neutral Milk Hotel to perform for the first time in 15 years and more. Recorded on 5/3/13, this is an edited version of the full conversation which is available for podcast.
The Howlin' Brothers come to us from Ithaca, NY by way of Nashville, TN (on their way to shows in Charlotte, Greenville, and Asheville this weekend.) The trio plays a mashup of bluegrass, blues, a touch of jazz, and old-time vaudeville on a variety of stringband instruments plus harmonica. Warren Haynes takes part in their new release Howl, which was produced by Brendan Benson of the Raconteurs.
The Gourds' frontman Kev Russell has had a side project for a few years now, to help provide an outlet for his huge well of material. But to throw in a little curveball, he ends Gulf Coast Museum with a ukulele version of "If You Don't Know Me By Now". Featuring a revolving lineup of Austin talent backing him up, this is Shinyribs' second album ("Poor Peoples' Store" became a WNCW hit from their first.)
