Friday Night Carrie, Lala, & I all trekked up to Seattle to go to Seattle University’s radio station, KSUB 89.1 FM. Why? Because their special in-studio guests that night were our two favorite Seattle bands, Julia Massey & The Five Finger Discount and The Jesus Rehab. And it was free and open to the public.
KSUB has a really neat setup. Once you get into the building (which can be an adventure in itself seeing as how many of the doors are locked after a certain time of day, and only students can open them) and go down into the basement of the residence hall, you’ll find a decent-sized room full of comfy couches on which you can sit. They all face one end of the room, and that’s where the music magic happens.
It was a great show from both groups, and props as always to Dom who is the drummer for both bands and therefore had to play the entire two+ hours.
It was especially fun to watch some of the college-age girls there fairly fawn over Jared (TJR’s Guitarist/Singer). It was also very cool when Jared name-checked me and thisischris.com on the air (it was because this was one of the first websites to post news of their No More Tears for Me single back in November and their EP Drunken Hillbilly Fight Bar is my Album of the Month this month), so big thanks to him. I wonder if I got any spike in traffic at all? Hold on, let me check Google Analytics.
Nope, just the same general amount of visitors that I would normally get on a Friday before a holiday weekend (i.e., not very many).
Anyhoo, thanks to JM+FFD & TJR for putting on a rocking good show, and thanks to KSUB for hosting it and letting us all come and watch. And everyone should, of course, buy the latest albums from JM+FFD & TJR:
