Hurray for the Riff Raff Live In Studio

Alynda Lee Segarra of Hurray for the Riff Raff is many things: a poet, an artist, a traveler, a feminist, and a musician. When she first started out playing in New Orleans, the only thing she could play was a washboard. Now, she plays guitar, banjo, harmonica, writes her own songs, and recently released her […]

On the Verge: Heathers

When I first heard Heathers – the twin duo of Ellie and Louise Macnamara – sing, I had flashbacks to high school, to the girls who sang the National Anthem games and sang in the hallway to the four chord strumming of the guy who stole your first girlfriend. The teen angst that has never […]

Blitzen Trapper Live In Studio

“Spielberg doesn’t know how to use any ambiguity,” Blitzen Trapper guitarist Brian Koch said on the topic of Steven Spielberg’s Minority Report. “Its like a Scooby Doo ending where they take the bad guy’s mask off and he’s like, ‘ I would have gotten away with it too if it weren’t for you meddling kids!’” Luckily […]

In a delightfully soulful end to this semester’s Live Music Week, WERS had the pleasure of hosting the vocalist, poet, and infinitely charming KaoVanny in studio. The artist plans to release Lov3child, her first full album, in June 2014. The record will be a musical expression of three distinct aspects of her life that have […]

Stone Cold Fox Live In Studio

Stone Cold Fox Live In Studio

88.9 tries to bring in the most up-and-coming artists to the studio and a band that is self-described as a mix of old and new music, Stone Cold Fox is a group that is most definitely on the rise, but also crosses and blends multiple music genres while still staying current with the indie rock […]

Cloud Nothings Live In Studio

Cloud Nothings Live In Studio

“I might get mad and attack this mic, I get into it, I get emotional.” Dylan Baldi, better known as the mind behind Cloud Nothings, gave fair warning to us here at WERS before performing acoustic songs from his new record Here and Nowhere Else for Live Music Week. Despite saying it sarcastically and playfully, […]
