the Gritty Birds Podcast is back with a new X-Ray show

The lovely Ms. Jeni Wren Stottrup is bringing her top rated music and industry podcast (a "Top 5 Music Podcast" by the Willamette Week) back for all our ears to enjoy once again. Starting TODAY at 1pm, Stottrup brings the Gritty Birds Podcast to KXRY XRay FM with half hour spurts of intimate discussions involving those in the music scene, profiling newer bands and getting better acquainted with some of the older ones. 

Kicking off the revived podcast right, the first episode features former Portlanders YACHT, who aside from being one of the most enjoyed performances at last month's Treefort Music Festival, also have two sold out shows coming up at the Roseland Theater on April 25th and 26th with M83.

Speaking of Treefort, Gritty Birds will also launch a Treefort series, featuring artists who performed the fest like Burger Records' Sarah Bethe Nelson, our own beloved Radiation City and raw rockers Diarrhea Planet, among others. Film photos of the artists, shot by Ingrid Renan, will accompany the series.

Tune in today at 1pm, and follow the show every Thursday. Episodes will be available on iTunes the following Mondays.

New artist to check out: Zebulon Gone plays Baby's All Right on 04.23

We are not sure if the concept of "sulking while danicing" existed before the introduction of goth music, but we certainly find the paradox amusing. Were you in the mood for it, we recommend you to watch this video, practice at home, get dressed appropriately, and then go showcase to the public your new moves and attire at Baby's All Right on April 23rd, during Zebulon Gone's live performance. This is a very new, local, one man act that blends goth with industrial (which is an electronic version of goth) without venturing in the latter genre's overly clangy tendencies. Check out single 'Get Out, streaming below.
