Tune in to Pam Without Boundaries Monday, May 5th, at 10:30am for an interview with Tina Schlieske as she gets ready to come back to the Twin Cities to celebrate the release of her first album with the B-Sides since 1999.

Schlieske has been a favorite singer and musician of her home town area since she put the B-Side Movement together in the late ‘80s earning their stripes all over Twin Cities’ clubs. Schlieske grew up in Apple Valley soaking up music in all kinds of genres. You can hear these pop up in her gospel-tinged power vocals, her countrified rock songs and her bluesy-rootsy numbers that can bring the house down. It seems like she knew from very early on that she had music in her to share with the world—she started playing venues before she was old enough to be a patron. Pam will talk with her about her new album with the B-Sides, as well as her CD release party at First Avenue Saturday, May 10th.

Minneapolis-based alternative rock band Vaudeville has generously donated one pair of tickets for their upcoming Masquerade Party/CD Release Show at First Avenue on Saturday, May 17, 2014, as well as four signed copies of their new CD, Part 1: The Masquerade, to KFAI’s Spring Pledge Drive. All of this can be yours with a contribution of $35 to our drive, while also assisting KFAI in reaching its $91,000 goal. However, Friday is the last day of the drive, so take advantage of this opportunity while it’s still around!

Vaudeville combines rock, electronic, and experimental elements to create a driving, addictive, and unarguably distinct sound that has catapulted them into the spotlight in recent years. Current members Christopher Gummeson (vocals/keyboards), Chris Schara (lead guitar/vocals), A.J. Sugar (rhythm guitar), Timmy Kosel (bass/vocals), and John “Jimbo” Olson (drums), together create a unique sound that has earned them an ever-increasing name in the Midwest’s music industry.
