bay area live remote 2009

Seattle’s amazing radio station KEXP 90.3FM is doing their first ever remote broadcast from the Bay Area on Jan. 28, 29 and 30. This comes after the Bay Area won their “City-to-City Challenge” during their last fundraising drive. The DJs will be broadcasting from a studio in Berkeley, and bringing the Bay Area some great events and music in the process.

The first exciting event is a series of live in-studio sessions. These sessions are free and open to the public, but you must RSVP on their website and they’re already filling up fast! Sessions that remain available are:

Her Space Holiday (UPDATE – full)
Mi Ami
High Decibels (UPDATE – full)
Odawas and a few more to be announced.

Sessions with John Vanderslice, Amon Tobin, Chuck Prophet and Fruit Bats are already full. If you can’t make it out, definitely tune in to their live stream on their website during these times (full schedule is available here).

Also, KEXP DJs, staff and volunteers will be taking over the Make-Out Room on Thursday, Jan. 29, at 9pm. KEXP DJs Kevin Cole and Cheryl Waters will be spinning, and you’re sure to meet some great people. The show starts at 9pm and is free.
