Poe

We've entered the October Country, described by Ray Bradbury as,

"...that country where it is always turning late in the year. That country where the hills are fog and the rivers are mist; where noons go quickly, dusks and twilights linger, and midnights stay. That country composed in the main of cellars, sub-cellars, coal bins, closets, attics, and pantries faced away from the sun. That country whose people are autumn people, thinking only autumn thoughts. Whose people passing at night on the empty walks sound like rain..."

Hallie Pritts with Boca Chica It's double dose of musical goodness on Lyrical Venus this week! 

First off we'll talk with Hallie Pritts, frontwoman of the indie-folk group Boca Chica from Pittsburgh.  Their second full-length CD, Lace Up Your Workboots, finds the band expanding to add more lush layers of sound while maintaining that hip-yet-vintage flavor so unique to Boca Chica. 

Dejha ColantuonoNext we'll talk to New York rocker Dejha Colantuono about her first solo album, Tea and Vodka.  No stranger to the music scene, Dejha has fronted a number of Seattle bands, including 3DS&M, the Pin-Ups, Rotten Apples, and Ragazza.  Her solo album is informed by a variety of influences, but is all tied together with her amazing voice. 

Tune in Tues 10/6 from 9-10 am for the interviews with Hallie Pritts and Dejha Colantuono!

As stated above. Sunday at 10:30 am and Monday at 1:30 pm.

New shows coming soon!
