On Deck: The Hummingbirds and The Farewell Circuit

Tonight’s show features a live, in-studio performance from Hummingbirds, a local band that calls the Powderhorn neighborhood home.  Hummingbirds specializes in “harmony-filled feel-good flowing music.”  Incorporating ukulele, banjo, and guitar, this all-female trio plays a range of tunes from funky to folksy.

Hummingbirds members Lynn O'Brien, Kestrel Feiner-Homer, and Sarina Yospinrom have honed their sound everywhere from backyard parties to cafés, from front porches to the Fine Line.  Community is as essential to the group as good jams are.

Also on deck is Erica Rivera's interview with Danny O'Brien and DJ House of The Farewell Circuit

The indie musicians discuss everything from their African mission inspiration to the cinematic source of the band's name to dreams of making it to SXSW.

Tune into Live From Studio 5! tonight from 10 PM to Midnight on KFAI: 90.3 FM in Minneapolis, 106.7 in St. Paul, or stream online.
