DJ Highlights

Local Beat recap 5/15/09

We packed quite a bit into an hour and half last Friday on the Local Beat.

At 5:00, Kim Gray brought a rather large posse with her, including Megan and Ian from Pistil, Paul and Junko from Scientific Superstar, Teresa from The Virgo 9, and Shirle from Free Electric State.  We chatted about the upcoming Pick n Bitch Festival at the Pinhook in Durham.  Our topics of discussion ranged from Durham’s (undue?) status as official “underdog of the triangle” to the word bitch and its connotation.

Then at 6:00, Liza Kate and Jenks Miller (Mount Moriah, In the Year of the Pig, un deux trois, Horseback) of Holidays for Quince Records joined us.  Liza had her release show that night for her new album, Don’t Let the Dogs.  We chatted a bit about the label and the weekend-long Holidays for Quince block party, and she was kind enough to play a few songs in studio for us.  Check it out below.
