5/8/2014 In Your Ear


dj cozy little subs In Your Ear this week…

It’s the Attack of the “Owl” Bands… and not only that, but the first three are all TC-area acts! The last one’s from Montreal, QB. Toward the end, The Very Idea (with Rebecca Scott in the line-up, who used to host a Monday night rock show on KFAI) capped another local mini-set, following Black Diet, who were in full effect in Powderhorn Park on Mayday, and horn rockers 3 Minute Hero, named after The Selecter’s 2Tone classic. And speaking of 2Tone, we also heard one of Elvis Costello’s contributions to that label, “I Can’t Stand Up for Falling Down.” To wrap the show up, we kissed you goodbye with Steam’s unintentional sports anthem “Na Na Hey Hey,” after which it was Rocket Ship time.
