At the end of March, we were lucky enough to have the Portland-based indie pop duo Dresses come in to our studio. Check out the session below:
This week’s Midnight Mock on “Viva Le Mock” will be THE EQUALS! Formed in London in 1965, The Equals featured a young Eddy Grant (Electric Avenue) on vocals and fused pop, blues, and R&B plus elements of ska and bluebeat. Listen to The Mockster play tribute to this iconic band through cover songs and whatever else he feels to see fit Friday (4/25) during “Viva le Mock” (9p-1a) at Midnight.
Evolving in the dirty south, ZOOGMA’s sound combines the sonic diversity and precision of a DJ with the excitement and immediacy of a four-piece rock group. ZOOGMA is able to blend genres in a musical experience that is refreshingly original yet steeped in dance music tradition, appealing to a range of audiences. Known for their energetic performances and retina pleasing light shows, the band consistently dishes out heavyweight beat-driven dance parties across the nation.
Opening for ZOOGMA will be Pittsburgh’s Universal Beat Union. UBU is a progressive electronic/rock trio featuring WRCT’s DJ Firefly on synths, her husband ERX on electronic drums, and long-time Pittsburgh guitarist Paul Ferraro. With diverse tastes and backgrounds, this fiercely creative group serves up an intriguing blend of musical styles that suddenly seem to have more in common than anyone thought. A captivating symphony of three!
