Lisa Brown was on the Zone today for My Turn.

She did a great job, and just before go home time at 5PM, she let it be known that she plays a mean acoustic cover of MGMT‘s “Electric Feel.”

SWA?

4 minutes later, she is going live… and you know what? it sounded pretty darn good.

Go with yourself.

I enjoyed an amazing BC Day weekend.  Saturday, my fiancee Coral and I took Madelyn to Beacon Hill Park to feed the ducks then off to Bear Mountain Stadium to watch the Victoria Rebels defeat the Okanagan Sun 34-21 in their football season opener.  Sunday we trucked off to Lake Cowichan for a day of swimming, beach, boating and sun.  I am a little sun burned.  The playlist for the drive up included Coral’s current fave, Yeah Yeah Yeah’s “Zero,” some Cage the Elephant, Phoenix, Interpol, Japandroids and The Rural Alberta Advantage.  Plus some electro sounding Hadoukan!

Monday, back to it broadcasting a BC Day holiday program.

Holidays are always a little slow on the Zone Phone (250-475-0913) but my-oh-my, the first three phone calls set up a “one of those” type of days moment.

The first call was some champion trying to be funny, “why do all radio DJs sound the same?

Then someone wanted to know if it was true that Lady Gaga is of The Third Sex?

and finally, Hep C outbreak at Thetis Lake.

Those were my first three calls sitting down for a BC Day afternoon… ahhh good times.

The above picture has very little to do with what’s about to happen in this post, I just thought it was a pretty album cover.  The band is called The Rural Alberta Advantage and their record is new and mega-hyped by the internets.  I am sure I’ll buy it sometime over the next couple weeks, so I’ll let you know what I think about it then…

The point of this post is simple really.  Madelyn got her tiny little baby hands on Coral’s phone today and somehow managed to call me during my show.  if you want to hear cute baby banter; you can by…

DJ Notes

01) Doc Currie – “Eastern Shore”
02) Aegis Fang – “Ghetto Man”
03) Saul – “Too Quick To Judge”
04) The Racoons – “Secret Song”

I met the boys in Doc Currie last week at Logan’s opening for The CFC (not to be confused with the Couples for Christ). DC is just two just guys doing the drums and guitar thing.  Lots of audio weirdness.  Two was thinking they sounded like Modest Mouse, I disagreed and pulled some threads of Japanadroids out.  But listening to “Eastern Shore” again on Capital Rock City… it is a little more noisy and experimental.

Aegis Fang!  Lets do it, this Thursday at Sugar for Beats and Babes 2!

BeatsandBabes2

The good kids in Saul asked me a couple weeks ago if they could use a clip form the Zone Afternoon Show in an intro to a song on their new record.  I said, “yuppers!”  And now you’re hearing it on Capital Rock City.  man, those were some good oranges.  I still remember them.  And to tie CRC 57 in to The Paper Cranes, Miranda went to Save-On and bought some oranges too.

The Racoons are on tour right now… Ontario maybe?  They’ll be back in Victoria for a show at Sugar on June 12th.  new ep, “Islomania” is out in Early June as well.

The “secret song” at the end of the “I’d Rather Be Sailing with” ep is a song that lead singer Matt describes as their “National sounding song.”  The National are taking FOREVER to follow up Boxer, so the Racoons will have to scratch that itch for me.

That’s all I got.  Thank you for downloading Capital Rock City.  If you like the show, please share the fine music of Victoria with your friends and pass the link on your social networks.

Go with yourself.

USS or the Ubiquitous Synergy Seeker were in Victoria last night for another Zone Show.  Before the rock was brought to a sold out Lucky Bar, the boys came on the Zone Afternoon Show for a live performance.  have a listen.

Song: “2 and 15/16th”
Song: “Hollow Point Sniper Hyperbole”
Song: “Laces Out”
Song: “Anti-Venom”

Interview and complete Performance: USS on The Radio

It was nice, Ash (the lead singer guy) was into my scooter, so I let him rip around after the set.  He mentioned that today he would pull the ultimate tourist move and rent one from that place downtown.  We shared a moment indeed.

I feel like a piece of ass because I flaked on the show last night.  I went home after my show to watch some hockey.  I ordered a pizza, cracked a beer.  One turned into almost a six-pack, Nucks win… and I just wanted to cuddle a pillow on my couch.  That and I was in no condition to drive, so no USS at Lucky Bar for me… bad radio DJ, bad.  Next time.

Go with yourself.
