Danny Weinkauf In-Studio

May 04

It was super great to have Danny Weinkauf (of They Might Be Giants) come by last fall.  His new record, “No School Today,” is out now, and you should totally pick it up.

Here, you can see him playing “Archeology” right here in our studio, with help from Gene Davis from The Que Pastas!

It’s ACL Time (The First of Two ACL Times)!

Oct 04

Holy smokes!  It’s time for the Austin City Limits Music Festival (and thanks, incidentally, to them for their support of the show)!

We’ll be heading out there for the second weekend and we’re pretty excited about it.  I wrote a brief set of suggestions for people going there with kids for the nice folks at LiveMom; read it here.  They’ve teamed up with some other people to create ACL with Kids, another great resource.

More directly relevant to the show, we’ve got some great in-studios lined up — we’ll record them over the next week and air them in coming weeks.  In addition to the Jellydots (airing this weekend), we’ve got The Ohmies, Play Date, Caspar Babypants, Tim & the Space Cadets (hopefully with some of Mother Falcon too), and the Verve Pipe.  And that’s just for ACL — also coming up, we’ve got Mike Doughty, Danny Weinkauf (of TMBG), and some other potential visits that will BLOW YOUR MIND.

I’m happy with our our videos are coming along too — Liam’s been a great help as camera operator.  Check out the Jellydots video:

Hooray!  It’s ROCKTOBER.
