I am not at SXSW. Pbone, CKXU’s music director is though and I am living vicariously through his tweets. Also, twitter is the biggest thing ever right now. This is what it must have felt like to be part of the hula hoop craze.

Sasquatch (re: better then SXSW anyway…) pre-view:

M. Ward!


A long long week for me, but very worthwhile. On the program this week, a special appearance from Lethbridge soul/funk musician Ife Abiola, who mocked me relentlessly. Why do I continue to bring on such rude and clearly ungrateful guest hosts? (Truth: It’s ’cause they’re cute)

While I wasn’t able to make it to David Byrne in Calgary I did play a little something on the program today. If you saw the show, holla at me and let me know just how sweet it was.

Its been a while since I have had a request so just to remind everyone, feel free to request! The on-air request number is 403 329 5189 or leave a comment on this blog or tweet me @JProssa… so many options!

Sasqautch pre-amp for this week: Animal Collective!

Sasquatch announced  their 2009 line-up today (thanks to all you twit’s who kept me in the loop….) and it is lookin’ mighty fine.

Personal high lites include Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Decemberists, Fleet Foxes, TV on the Radio, Of Montreal, Explosions in the Sky, M83, The Walkmen, Monotonix, The Pica Beats, Demetri Martin and Tim and Eric. Seriously, this is pretty fly. I have yet to see 60% of this list live…

Sasquatch always provides a pretty sweet ass time and everyone who has gone has had nothing but very good things to say.

The Gorge is amazing, the music is on-going and fantastic and because it’s in May it doesn’t usually get “unbearably-Coachella-I’m-gonna-die-but-I-won’t-buy-a-3-dollar-bottle-of-water” hot. Which is good news bears. That being said, Coachella’s line up is looking good too. Huge as usual which means there are a lot of artists to check out, but a little desperate. Kinda like that second cousin who seeks you out at family gathering’s, sporting American Appearl tights, a “vintage looking” tee, an eyebrow peircing and talks about that great indie band “Death Cab for Cutie” they just discovered  “ON VINYL”.

Ya know?

Lastly, as a gift:

This show is dedicated to the lovely and oh-so-elusive Sasquatch…
