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!
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 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.
Tune in for another edition of Divine Intervention, emanating live from Davis, California, on this warm spring day. We'll have new rock/pop, probably some funky soul, and maybe even a little swinging country or jazz. No promises, except for a just-ducky Vinyl Vespers track from the pictured artist. Tune in 7-9p PT, only on KDRT 95.7fm.
Ministresse JessGoddesse is flying solo this evening for another installment of Divine Intervention. Expect much new music -- we've added a g'zillion new artists/tracks across genres over the past six weeks or so -- plus the questionable magic of Vinyl Vespers. Tune in 7-9p PT, only on KDRT.
Tonight on Divine Intervention we're flying by the seat of our pants (even more than usual) -- nothing planned except this masterpiece for Vinyl Vespers -- and new music, of course, likely in the rock vein. Don't be surprised if you hear some old-school beats, too. Tune in 7-9p PT to hear what happens.
Man, look at all the KEYS on that thing -- that sure is one big organ, and it's sure to be featured during Vinyl Vespers on Divine Intervention, airing this evening from 7 to 9p on KDRT. Extending far beyond big organs, there will be much new music -- maybe even more than last week, if that's humanly possible. We'll probably start with rock/pop but who knows where we'll end... Tune in and groove.
We can't say it better than Pitchfork did back in 2005, when Dragon House hit the shelves: "L.A.-based band fold Ethiopian touches into a Cambodian style of pop heavily influenced by classic American surf rock and Nuggets-era garage-psych." That about sums it up. Tune in, 5-6p PT, for Dengue Fever on AotW! @JessGoddesse hosts.
You know we didn't play enough new music last time 'round on Divine Intervention, and so we'll attempt to make up for that in spades this week. We have SO much new music across genres, if you don't hear something new at least once (or so) per set, then we're not doing our divine task, and you can feel free to holler at the hostesse in the comments. Along with all this newfound fun, we'll "tempt" you with Vinyl Vespers, a'course. Do tune in, 7-9p PT, only on KDRT.
