I’ve pulled it off again listeners. Another great interview, despite tripping all over my words. They always say you’re your own worst critic, and as much as I second guess myself, I’d believe it.

Before I introduce today’s episode, I’d just like to thank everyone who came out Monday evening for the show at the Clifton Center. It was a great time, and I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. I really look forward to similar events in the future. I want to thank again my artists, the Clifton Center, and our awesome tech Adam.

Now, today’s episode! Last week I chatted with local musician Clint Ackerman. He has been playing music the majority of his life; as early as young childhood per the family legends. Clint is a musician that doesn’t let production perfection trump the creative merit of his work. Much of his work is about capturing the energy of a particular moment…the spirit of what he’s going for. His debut album, ‘Failing in Love’, definitely has a very bubbly psychedelic feel akin to the music of the late 60’s. The songs he’s been working on since have been much more varied sonically, and he says his next collection may be much more in the vein of ‘Berlin Trilogy’ era David Bowie. If this proves true, I’ll be eagerly awaiting the release date!

To learn more about Clint’s musically output, you can visit his Facebook page. His album from spring of 2012, ‘Failing in Love’, is available in the iTunes store. Give it a listen!

Catch everyone next week…

Monday is only a couple of days away

Monday slowly approaches, listeners. And with it comes the Blind Date sponsored event Glances: an evening of short films and performances. I thought it might be nice to give you a couple of teasers before the show, to get you excited and all that.

Here’s a video clip of Lady Pyramid performing ‘Oranges’

And here is the trailer for the Astral Projects production ‘Never Forever’, featuring Prince Rama.

If this doesn’t incite you, I’m not sure what will. Learn more here.

Just one more piece of FYI worthy material, next Wednesday’s episode will feature an interview I did with local musician Clint Ackerman. A man after my own heart, due mostly to his love of Bowie…haha, I kid, there’s more to it than that. Make sure to keep your ears peeled or subscribe to the podcast, so you never miss a beat.
