The final Friday in February ended-up being a snow day for many of us in Southern New England as a Nor'easter swept through the area making it a perfect day to brew up some coffee and listen to new and timeless tunes on BumbleBee Brunch.
Alternative heavy hitters dropped new tunes over the past week including Florence + The Machine and The Afghan Whigs. We also heard new music from Los Angeles acts Momma and Drool Brothers and popped-into London for a slice of post-rock/jazz from Modern Nature. Boston was well represented on the Friday show with songs from Aaron And The Lord, Crow Follow, We Broke The Weather, J Prozac, Avi Jacob, Mission To Sleep, Sebadoh, Constellation Myths, and Blue Hyenas. Blue Hyenas have a show on March 18th at Union Tavern in Somerville and will be back there again on April 9th as part of the New England Music Awards: Last Band Standing Competition. BumbleBee Radio is a sponsor for this year's event!
There are a bunch of great shows coming up as we get into Spring and Friday's Brunch featured some the artists playing LIVE at the end of March and early April...
This is going to be a wonderfully FUN night on Saturday 3/26/22 at Midway Cafe in Jamaica Plain with the insanely awesome Little Billy Lost, The Shang Hi Los, Modern Day Idols, and Lonely Leesa & The Lost Cowboys. I am your special guest hostess for the evening! Click HERE for more info.
If you love electronic music this is the show for you on Friday 4/8/22 at O'Brien's Pub in Allston featuring BumbleBee Radio favorites Violet Nox, Ex-Hyena, and Andre Obin along with J. Bagist, Christina Shivers, and JSanterelli. I am the special guest host for this evening as well. More info HERE.
We played a new tune from Boston band Bird Language on the Friday show and they have a LIVE event coming-up on Sunday 3/20/22 at ONCE at The Rockwell in Davis Square, Somerville along with Adi Sun and Little Fuss (two artists I adore.) I am not the special guest host for this but I am going nonetheless. Hope to see you there! Click HERE for more info. This week was packed with album anniversaries highlighted by the 50th anniversary of Nick Drake's melancholy masterpiece "Pink Moon" and the 30th anniversary of the groundbreaking debut album from Tori Amos: "Little Earthquakes."
