Album Review by Mia Call, photos by Addie Briggs.

If this Bay Area winter has taught us anything, it's that when it rains, it pours. Luckily, on December 8th, Berkeley-based indie artist Chammeili released the perfect soundtrack for an overcast East Bay Sunday. Icy Blue distills the hushed, cool quality of singer Kaamya Sharma’s voice with reserved acoustics and unsettling lyrics. Released on El-Cerrito based label Lavasocks, Chammeili’s debut takes a quieter, more haunting approach to youth than any of the band’s previous songs.

Modest Mouse celebrated the 25th anniversary of their album, The Lonesome Crowded West, in Oakland’s Fox Theatre on November 30th. The album was released in 1997, when the members of the band were in their early twenties. Unlike their more recent albums, the tracks themselves have a distinct youthfulness to them, filled with more angst, shouting and confusion.

Steve Lacy at the Fox Theater
Posted on 2/24/2023

On February 16th, alternative R&B artist Steve Lacy brought out a crowd rivaling that of the population of a small nation. Packed like sardines in Oakland’s Fox Theater, this sold-out show attracted fans from far and wide hoping to catch a glimpse of gen-z’s latest prince of indie pop. Following a tour plagued with criticism, Lacy provided not only his signature blend of jazz inspired R&B, but also a candid glimpse into the mind, ego, and personality of the icon himself.

White Reaper
Wednesday, February 22nd - 8:00pm
Posted on 2/28/2023

Last Wednesday, the 22nd of February, I arrived at August Hall for the White Reaper show, with Taipei Houston and Narrow Head opening. This was my first time attending a show as a member of KALX and I wanted to do my due diligence, so I showed up almost an hour early which in retrospect was probably overkill. I had just recently signed up to cover this show, so I prepared myself by listening to a couple of the top songs from each band that was going to perform. I was not disappointed.
