Portland/Seattle band Estocar live set tonight on Back To The Egg!

Join Back To The Egg at midnight as we welcome Portland/Seattle band Estocar to the program. Estocar describes themselves as "underground surf dance happy pop". There are definitely some nods to both the 80's and the 60's in their music.Their new record is called Faux Fiction.

Estocar will be playing live in hour one of the program. After that I will be with you until 3am playing you underground rock, pop, and beats from the last 36 years -- including tracks from Time Zone, The Go-Go's, Black Flag, Cibo Matto, and new music from Django Django and The Dandy Warhols.

Spring Membership Drive is upon us....it's a particularly special occasion as I'm also celebrating 4 years as a late-night KBOO DJ!

I've also done quite a few "theme shows" with my friend Todd Bayles: Beatlesque I & II, Songs About Girls, Songs About Love, Songs About Cities.

This episode of Back To The Egg is a special of specials! I will be playing 3 hours of sets taken from the 4 years of ANODYNE/Back To The Egg specials. Tune in - there'll be something for everyone! Sunday morning May 6 from midnight to 3am.

Johnny Indovina from Human Drama's new disc

I am hoping you'll add a track from the new disc by Johnny Indovina & Sound of the Blue Heart; I think it's a good fit for the show (I'm here in Portland).

Should I send you the cd?

Here's the links to sample some of the tracks:

Hope to hear from you soon,
Laurena
