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.

The night of the 21st was exquisite as Thee Sacred Souls’ music acted as a mirror into the hearts of all persons in the crowd.

Momma CD
Posted on 2/23/2023

Each week, KALX gets dozens of new releases to be added to the Features bin in our legendary library. Household Name, the 3rd studio album by Momma, recently became part of this features bin, and has quickly become one of my favorite albums of 2022. For an in-depth review of a sick album, read on!

NoSo at the Rickshaw.
Posted on 2/24/2023

NoSo, Squirrel Flower, and Maria BC put on a bone-chilling and ethereal performance that could only be described as a haunting, warm musical experience where the audience more closely resembled swaying kelp than the typical moshing and frantic imagery associated with indie pop or rock concerts.

Reptaliens at the UC Theatre
Posted on 3/5/2023

On Thursday, February 23rd, Portland-based band Reptalienscaptivated concert-goers at the UC Theatre in Berkeley. Reptaliens created a surreal atmosphere that made everyone in the theatre feel the music throughout their bodies. They opened for  STRFKR and came second in the lineup behind one-man band Das Kope   at one of this year’s Noise Pop Festival concerts.

Christian Kuria performs at Noise Pop
Posted on 2/28/2023

On February 24th, Christian Kuria, an up and coming R&B artist hailing from Vallejo, California, took the stage at the New Parish in Oakland as part of the annual Noise Pop Festival. This sold out show was opened by Malia, an R&B/soul artist and Dash George, a hip hop artist. I remember hearing fans recalling how much they enjoyed the openers.
