Divine Intervention Strikes - July 3

This evening on Divine Intervention, we'll listen to some sweet sounds from the bands performing at tomorrow's Fourth of July celebration (thanks to the Davis Live Music Collective). "Which bands?" you ask. None other thanCon Brio, Achilles Wheel, and Element Brass Band. "Will this be fun?" you ask. Actually, no, you don't—because you know from the line-up that the answer is a definite "Yes!" Instead, you ask if George Maharis is in one of these bands. We decline to answer that silly question, but we do hope you'll tune in for the July 4th preview, new music, and, of course, Vinyl Vespers, only on Divine Intervention, 7-9p PT, on KDRT-FM.

Album of the Week - NEW Garrett Pierce - June 22

The East Bay Express expresses it best: "Garrett pens songs that are literary in style with well-worked lyrics and a voice that soars over dark, ethereal melodies...ranging from raving pop to solemn folk, from Shins-like exuberance to Mark Kozalek's charismatic sadness." Dusk is no exception. Tune in Thursday, June 22, 5-6p, for Album of the Week on KDRT. Jess Goddesse hosts.

 

Divine Intervention Strikes - June 19

This week, Divine Intervention strikes to save us from that anticlimatic DMF hangover. Yes, the 7th annual Davis Music Fest (and KDRT's 2nd annual DMF live broadcast) was good fun for all—so much fun that it's hard to say goodbye. On top of that, unless you are as intrepid as our own photographista Eunah, you likely didn't catch every band on every stage. To remedy this situation on this hotter-than-hades evening, we'll skip Vinyl Vespers tonight (and even skimp a little on the new tunes) simply to revisit assorted savory sounds from several DMF7 artists. Do tune in, 7-9p Pacific, only on KDRT! For visual accompaniment, peruse Eunah's hot photos here!

 

Live DiRT at Davis Music Festival, June 16-18!

Once again, the KDRT Live DiRT crew brings the sounds of the 7th Annual Davis Music Fest to the airwaves. Join KDRT broadcasters for the live-music action:

* The SUDWERKS’s kickoff party on FRIDAY evening, with the Polyorchids, Kaz Mirblouk, The Nickel Slots, and Boca do Rio…

* The K-DiRT Stage at ARMADILLO MUSIC on SATURDAY, with Lillian Frances, Tony Bonacci, Gabe Lewin, Garrett Pierce, Hannah Jane Kile, and Pets…

* The WOODSTOCK’s afternoon party on SUNDAY, with the Golden Gate String Quartet, Be Brave Bold Robot, The Five Thirty, and the West Nile Ramblers.

In addition to broadcasting the musical acts from these fine venues, an expanded Live DiRT crew will roam the streets of downtown Davis on Saturday, collecting interviews, sounds, and samples from across the festival for sharing over the air and social media. See you at DMF7!

Divine Intervention Strikes - June 12

Divine Intervention strikes once again at 7p PT on KDRT. This week, we plan on some brand new tunes, including the latest RAWK from '68 and Shred Flintstone, new pop from Palehound, and some wonderful electronic weirdness via new releases from Com Truise and JNTHN STEIN. Our Vinyl Vespers feature looks groovy but is not quite as obscure as we might like. We'll give it a spin during our weekly worship, see where it takes us, hope for the best. Do tune in.
