Join the KDRT Live DiRT crew for September's 2nd Friday ArtAbout with one-man band Doc Tari, broadcasting live from the Armadillo Music stage in downtown Davis, September 8, starting at 6:30 p.m. sharp-ish. Doc Tari draws inspiration from New Orleans buskers, driving out feel-good rhythms on foot-pedal drums, guitar, and harmonica, singing songs that track the roots of American music through the annals of country, blues, gospel, and folk. Come on down to Armadillo for the live show, or if you truly can't make it downtown, tune in for the live broadcast, only on KDRT, where the grass roots grow!
Divine Intervention strikes this evening, 7-9 pm PT on KDRT. It's a hot, hot, HOT evening here in Davis, CA, and so we'll play nothing but the coolest of tunes, new and old, rock and beyond. So what does that mean, specifically? Nothing. Literally nothing. Like we said. It's hot. It's too hot to think, in fact. But we'll have fun. You'll see.
This week's edition of Divine Intervention strikes with a slate of new rock/pop from the likes of Algiers, Cage the Elephant, Red Baraat, and Teenage Bottlerocket, as well as some loveliness en Español from Lila Downs. There will be other genres. There will be an obligatory eclipse-related song. And there will be Vinyl Vespers as pictured—a recording made to be funny that may have decidedly missed the mark. Guess we'll see (or hear) this evening, 7-9p PT, only on KDRT. More info and replays here on the program page.
You can see from the thumbnail that this is going to be an especially challenging Vinyl Vespers service, and so pat yourself on the back in advance for tuning in to Divine Intervention. The rewards will be great--including new and old rock, pop, and otherwise--live this evening, 7-9p Pacific, only on KDRT, where those grass roots (and apparently rose petals) grow.
