Interview with Martín Perna of Antibalas

Before his trip to Tucson, I had the chance to speak with Martín Perna of Antibalas on the phone. We discussed their current tour with the amazing Zap Mama, a unique take on culture and what gets people dancing, architecture of music, and what's to come for the band.

Trap music is very much a love it or hate it genre. However, if all trap shows were as good as Thursday night’s with RL Grime and Djemba Djemba, then it wouldn’t matter whether you liked the genre or not, because you’d be in for one hell of a show.

SURFER BLOOD at The Flycatcher, February 19

SURFER BLOOD

John Paul Pitts and Kevin Williams interviewed by Melanie Trecha (KAMP) and Caren Badtke (Daily Wildcat)

Caren Badtke: So we’re talking about your new album 1000 Palms and about the two singles, like we heard ‘Dorian’ already, and the other single, and they’re pretty synthy, back to the roots. As far as the album goes, will it be like that?

Location: 
Club Red Tempe

The show was held in the intimate backroom of Club Red in Tempe. Doors opened at 7 and the the music started at 8 with the opening act Noname Gypsy. She was good for an opening act, and although her delivery may need some work the depth of her lyrics provided for an enjoyable performance. She had a good stage presence and was great at getting response from the crowd. Following Noname Gypsy was an artist named Saba Pivot. Saba was wild on stage and his songs ranged from quick spitting rap displays to slower songs heavy on the bass.

Grizfolk, Interviewed by Tatum Schranz

The Pot of Gold Music Festival is coming to Tempe in March, and the DJs from KAMP Radio are bringing you all the best pre-coverage from the artists. Grizfolk is an indie band hailing from all around the world, and their unique blend of styles has earned them somewhat of a cult following among indie rock fans. Three of Grizfolk's five members called into the station on a brisk Tucson morning and I was able to ask them all about where they came from and where they're going.

Folk yeah! Fantastic Show put on by the Avett Brothers and their band. Wether you like folky love songs, political pieces, or rocking hard, this show had something for you.  The Avett brothers played bunch of their classics throughout the night. One thing you would be suprised to learn about the Avett Brothers and band is that they can get down! All band members waltzed around on stage for the listeners delight. They really do have a great set of members. Throughout the night, the Avett Brothers highlighted each band member with incredible solos.
