07:30 - Thunder & Lightning (Brent Katz from Harlem Shakes) Piano-y existential soul music in 4/4

08:15 - Julie DeLano and Gold (The Leader)

09:00 - Not Waving But Drowning Born in a squalid Brooklyn cabaret and shanghaied by a dilapidated freighter bound for uncharted waters, Not Waving But Drowning's rag and bone style and contagious enthusiasm are on full display on the band's second album, "Processional". Their tales of mystery, adventure, and poisoned love are delivered in dueling boy/girl vocals, glorious three-part harmony and impeccable attire.

09:45 - Flare Acoustic Arts League (LD Beghtol w/ Kendall Jane Meade and assorted other waifs and strays) LD Beghtol, a displaced Southerner currently exiled to the Bushwick sector of Brooklyn, is a musician, writer and art director. He has made music under the guises of Flare/Flare Acoustic Arts League, LD & the New Criticism, moth wranglers and the Three Terrors (with Dudley Klute and Stephin Merritt); he also appeared as guest vocalist/designer on the Magnetic Fields' 69 LOVE SONGS. The latest album by his band Flare Acousic Arts League is called BIG TOP/ENCORE, which features heaps of loud guitars and weird keyboards, liner notes by Daniel Handler and a low (for him) body count; it will be released by Affairs of the Heart on 25 November. Beghtol likes cheap vodka, expensive scotch and bearded men (or women) who feel at home in brocade smoking jackets. When not archiving his collection of Victorian postmortem photography he... oh nevermind.

10:30 - Peels PEELS is a loud pop trio from Brooklyn, NY, consisting of singer-songwriter Justin Lawless, drummer Brian Goodheart, and bassist Bradley Nelson. Drawing comparisons from various genres of pre-internet college radio such as Galaxie 500 and Sebadoh, they are the sonic tidal wave that downed the rock 'n roll surf-punk show.

Hosted by Major Matt Mason USA.
