"We finally landed an interview with Noah Byrd. Spend an hour with this local songwriter, right before he leaves to tour the Pacifc Northwest. With a voice compared to Elliot Smith and Bradley Nowell, he combines melancholic vocals with punk-influenced acoustic guitar, giving an aggressive undertone to his otherwise laid-back sound."
A chance encounter that changed my life... you're going to meet that person -- and we will play some tunes to reflect that. As a bonus feature, the mystery guest will be my 100th interview.

Imagine if Johnny Cash, Bob Marley and Joan of Arc were one woman. Now, imagine that woman gathering a band of eclectic musicians on a crusade to expand the bounds of Country music. The Evangenitals, founded by playwright/director Juli Crockett and opera, jazz & gospel singer Lisa Dee are an alt-country/Americana love revolution made flesh for your listening pleasure. On a quixotic crusade in the key of life hell-bent on breaking hearts open, they are a genre-bending, ever-creating force of nature.
The Evangenitals boast one of the most eclectic resumes in the indie music world. As live performers, they’ve built a fiercely loyal following through a thousand shows at clubs, coffee houses and festivals throughout the world (including Scotland’s prestigious Edinburgh Fringe Festival). Their shows are notable for music that can be bawdy and rollicking in one moment, and, in the next, sufficiently mysterious and haunting to make the rowdiest of beer brawlers pause, turn toward the stage and listen.
12 venues - more then 60 acts - 3 days of delight - and its all this weekend in Davis. June 19, 20 and 21. Listen in this week as Listening lyrics checks out and plays some of the bands performing.
