Delgres Live: A Unique Power Trio Connects the Caribbean, the Bayou, The Mississippi Delta and More
Saturday, September 29th, 2018, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

Delgres is a compelling guitar, sousaphone and drum power trio. They're based in Paris, but inspired by leader Pascal Danaë's ancestral roots in Guadalupe, they forge a sort of missing musical link between African diaspora cultures in the French Caribbean and the US. And they really rock out. We're thrilled to have Delgres stop in to perform live in the studio during their fall US tour. (Their NY date is / was Tuesday night Sept 25th at Joe's Pub.) We'll hear Delgres perform music from their excellent new album Mo Jodi and more - include a surprising twist on a blues-inspired British rock classic.

In Real Life with Kimzilla and Emily
Jessica Bruder is a journalist who reports on subcultures and economic justice. In her recent book Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century, she spent months living in a camper van affectionately named “Van Halen”, documenting itinerant Americans who gave up traditional housing and hit the road full time, enabling them to travel from job to job and carve out a place for themselves in our precarious economy. The project spanned three years and more than 15,000 miles of driving—from coast to coast and from Mexico to the Canadian border. Jess Bruder will join Kimzilla and Emily in studio live to talk about her book and her own experiences being on the road.


En Attendant Ana
Tuesday, September 25th, 2018, 9pm - Midnight
on Burn It Down! with Nate K.

French sensations En Attendant Ana have been on the Burn It Down! radar for a couple years now, and we are delighted to welcome the Parisian quintet to the show for a live set. Recalling Unrest at its most infectious, the band also brings to mind the furious strum of the Wedding Present, the gleefully skewed sensibilities of the Clean, and the avant-garde cool of fellow Gauls Stereolab (also, dig that trumpet!). A perfect melding of pure pop precision and old-fashion racket-making, the band is on tour in the States now and will play Alphaville, in Brooklyn, on September 20. Catch them live on Burn It Down! on Tuesday, September 25. And look for them as they take over Gonerfest, in Memphis, Tennessee, September 27-30.

Oh Boland
Monday, September 24th, 2018, Noon - 3pm
on Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

Oh Boland returns to WFMU to deliver another helping of boredom-fueled pop melodies driven by a love of girl group, country music and '70s power pop, enshrouded in the drunken slop of the Irish barroom rock n roll band and the unbridled motion of punk.

Following the release of their fifth LP (and second for Sub Pop), Lithium Zion, Deaf Wish once again burn down the studio with their lightning-strike twin-guitar attack anchored by an unwavering rhythm section.

Check your local listings to see if Deaf Wish is coming to your area; but until that day comes, we've got this session (expertly captured by engineer Mario Santana) to whet your whistle and maintain your equilibrium. Tune in next Tuesday to SPIN AGE BLASTERS with Creamo Coyl to catch some lightning in your bottle.

People don’t dance anymore to rock bands, but The Creation Factory is here to change that. Channeling the sounds of 1960s psychedelic beats, the Los Angeles-based five-piece isn't just making music—"we're capturing the sort of sounds that people don’t hear anymore," says front man Shane Stots—it's creating an experience. That experience is captured on their fantastic debut album on Lollipop Records as well as their amazing live shows. Don't miss The Creation Factory on tour at Monty Hall on Friday Sept. 14th and Rough Trade Saturday Sept. 15th.

Wayne Kramer, fabled guitarist of the legendary MC5 chats with Todd-O-Phonic Todd about his new autobiography, "The Hard Stuff" (Da Capo).

Wayne made it through the darkness and can be seen with The 2018 MC50 Tour at Irving Plaza on Monday September 17th.
