Paula Frazer (formerly Tarnation) sings songs from her new album, Leave the Sad Things Behind; plus, Karen Penley and cast members and musicians of the Not the More Lovely: A Circus Sideshow perform excerpts of their original part-circus, part-magic new theater piece.
The Hear and Now
10:00 PM Pacific Time: Thursdays
A freeform mix of music, ranging from singer-songwriter folk and surprising back-catalog rock ’n’ roll to avant-garde jazz and improvisation, with unexpected forays into everything in between and beyond. Bits of comedy, international sounds, and contemporary and postmodern classical composition crop up now and then, and local and touring musicians stop by frequently for conversations and fully produced in-studio concerts. Hosted by Derk Richardson.
Banjo wiz Bill Evans talks to Derk Richardson about "traditionally progressive" bluegrass, his band Due West, the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, and his project with Jody Stecher, "The Secret Life of Banjos." — Thurs., Sept. 22, 10 p.m., The Hear & Now.
Karen Penley and other cast members and musicians perform excerpts of Not the More Lovely: A Circus Sideshow, original "physical theater" that is part circus, part magic, using Pandora’s Box as a metaphor for the self.
