A Season in Hell #44: Radio Valencia: In Chinese the Number 4 = Death

June 27, 7pm

A couple of Sundays ago I had the extreme pleasure of attending Songwriters Unplugged over at Yoshi’s SF. Songwriters Unplugged is a weekly show, that features a set from three local singer/songwriters. It’s a great way for a great venue to support local talent. Radio Valencia then plays the recorded performance on the following Saturday, 4-6pm. Tune in, you’ll be glad you did.

Tonight on A Season in Hell, guitarist Jason Cole of Utah Girl came by. I got to see him and his partner Amy MacClain at the Yoshi’s show and was thoroughly impressed.

They have a six song EP CD out right now. They’re completing their first full length, but need your help. Head on over to Kickstarter to donate to the production-cost-cause.

I play three Utah Girl songs tonight. Check out “Percents”.

Here’s the link to the archived show.

Enjoy the show.
