Locals Only CD Release Party - Feb 2nd at Plush

With your help, KXCI will be wrapping up the membership drive early next week, and you can help us celebrate by coming out to the CD release party for the latest Live From Studio 2A Compilation: Locals Only, Volume 4! The event will be held Friday, February 2nd at Plush, and will feature live performances from 10 of the compilation's 16 local artists.

You can kick-start the marathon of music by coming out for the early lounge show by Duo Sonido, as they bring you their beautiful Hawaii-meets-Arizona lounge-jazz from 6-8pm. From there, things move into the back room of Plush, with music starting promptly at 8, as Tesoro will treat you to their fiery fusion of rock and flamenco. Marianne Dissard & Naim Amor will continue the international flavor with some sultry French lounge-pop, and from there we'll segue into the indie rock stylings of Redlands. Singer-songwriter Courtney Robbins will take to the stage next, ready to impress you with material from her new CD, Red Sky In Morning, and she'll be followed by local teen phenom, Andrew Collberg. Next, we shift gears as SKITN gets you moving with their island-reggae beats, and we follow them up with the acoustic pop of Ryanhood. Salvador Duran, Tucson's spanish troubador, will wow the crowd with his boisterous vocal style, animal noises, and stompbox, before Found Dead on the Phone closes out the night with their epic emotive album-oriented rock.

To call it a celebration of local music would be a huge understatement, so we hope that you'll join us on Friday, February 2nd at Plush. It's a celebration of the talent and hard work of local musicians and KXCI, and made possible through the support of KXCI listeners like you! Come early, stay late, and enjoy a wide variety of Tucson's amazingly talented local musicians. $5 will get you in the door for KXCI's own version of a "gem show," but be sure to bring some extra cash to pick up KXCI compilations as well as albums from the performers on the bill.
