Liam Finn - Live@5 and KXCI Presents - Thursday
Tune in to Live@5 on The Homestretch Thursday, September 18th, for an in-studio performance with Liam Finn. Liam is touring behind his solo debut "I'll Be Lightning" on Yep Roc Records. I was released in January and has been a favorite down here at KXCI. Liam is the son of Neil Finn (Split Enz, Crowded House) and the knack for hooks and memorable pop songs seems to run in the family. Liam's live show is something to see but it all comes down to the songs and these stand up.
Liam's unique live performances with back up singer E-J Barnes, involve him looping guitar parts, bass lines, even theremin to create bombastic walls of sound. These loops bubble beautifully under his honest songs and reach points of such intensity that Liam even thrashes away on a drumkit like a man possessed.
"No two shows are the same" Liam says. "It has been constantly evolving all year and it's so enjoyable to let the spontaneous moments guide the show... absolutely anything can happen".
Liam Finn and The Veils will be appearing at Plush Thursday night in a KXCI Presents show, doors open at 9pm.
***update*** The Veils will be stopping by for a chat on The Homestretch around 4:45 prior to the Liam Finn Live@5!
