KALX Live will host San Francisco's Luke Sweeney on Saturday, February 4th. Luke first appeared on KALX Live in the ancient age of 2015 giving us a solo set of music from his record Adventure: Us. He's back two albums later with a full band who will need to be packed like a Tetris brink into the studio. - https://www.lukesweeney.com

On Friday, January 21, the first night of the Homesick Festival took place at the UC Theatre. Boasting a lineup of six artists, attendees were able to enjoy everything from angsty hardcore to soft sadgirl indie.
This Saturday, January 28th on KALX Live, Hot Laundry is hosted in-studio by Renée Black. Tune in around 9:30 PM to hear Hot Laundry take over the KALX studios with a live performance + interview. Sending you back to the 1960s bad girl garage band days, Hot Laundry is a San Francisco outfit kicking out a fresh new take on hi-octane rock-n-roll. With hints of Motown, revved up guitars in the vein of MC5, and a heavy dash of delta boogie.

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.
