* Featuring an interview with Kris and Shannon from Vancouver band Blackberry Wood*
We kick off the show with the lead track to the self-titled release by Polly, the latest solo project from Vancouver music scene veteran Paul Leahy. I highly recommend catching this guitar hero and brilliant tunesmith in live action! Seminal Melbourne punk band The Meanies are up next, with a play-through of their ‘Just What You Need’ 7″, which I discovered in the CiTR record library. Another 7″ to come for another show.
Gold Fields and Vance Joy are two Australian acts passing through Vancouver in the next month. Stay tuned for ticket giveaway opportunities in upcoming shows.
Our special guests today are frontman Kris and newcomer bassist Shannon, from Vancouver-based alt-country gypsy band Blackberry Wood! Along with some choice cuts from Blackberry Wood’s two official high-energy releases, you’ll hear Kris and Shannon joyfully reveal some fascinating tales of life on the road, including the remarkable series of events that led to the band being invited to play at the Glastonberry Festival in England….
