Stranded podcast #114

June 6, 2012

* Featuring a special on the 2012 Music Waste Festival and an in-studio interview with Vancouver hard rock band Black Sugar *

The start of spring is a wonderful time to be in Vancouver. As the winter damp and grey morphs into hints of summer seductions, the first of the major musical festivals transforms a number of local venues into the weekend of musical creativity and performance that is Music Waste. I feature a few of the bands playing this year’s Music Waste, including CiTR’s own Chrisariffic! To warm up the show I feature a few tracks from Chris’ old band They Shoot Horses Don’t They, before showcasing some local acts that you can catch this weekend.

Fresh alt-country from Australia’s The Yearlings follows, before we come full circle and feature a local band of a completely different style – hard rock. Vancouver’s Black Sugar has 3 track ep out and are gearing up an upcoming gig at the Railway Club on June 15. Vocalist Rob and guitarist Alex of the band pop into the studio to chat and play a couple of acoustic tracks live! Matt G
