Buffalo Tom @ KEXP Studios (3/1/18)

Beth and I got up, skipped our showers, skipped our breakfasts, and hustled down the hill while still wearing at least half of the clothes we’d slept in.  Maybe we changed our socks.  So why did two people who are usually hygienic and stuffed with pastries and egg sandwiches in the morning drop their usual routines and hustle down the hill in their pajamas?  Well, we needed to get to KEXP by 7:30 to get free tickets for Buffalo Tom’s 9:00 in-studio performance.

We got tickets #2 and #3.  Woo!

Beth is more hygienic than I am, so she went back home and took a shower once we’d secured the tickets.  I just loitered at KEXP and thought a lot about mocha muffins.

Beth got back down the hill with plenty of time and we were led into the secret studio viewing area at a little before 9:00.  We then spent the next 35 minutes watching Buffalo Tom play a five-song set and talk to a radio personality-type about their new album and upcoming tour.  The whole thing was a lot of fun and a great preview of coming attractions.  That tour I mentioned actually starts tonight at Neumos.  We’ve also got tickets for that.

Here’s what the band played for the radio session:

Buffalo Tom setlist: All Be Gone / Taillights Fade / Kitchen Door / I’m Allowed / Least That We Can Do

The first and last songs are from Quiet and Peace, the new Buffalo Tom album that officially comes out tomorrow.  I’m hoping they’ll have copies available for purchase tonight, though. 

Now for that shower.

    Being part of a radio studio audience is really cool, because it’s always a very small, intimate setting. I went to a radio comedy news show recording and it was great fun.

      This was the first time I’d been to a live radio session. It was a lot of fun and I hope to do it again. I also hope KEXP puts the session online for repeated viewing/listening.
