The last two weeks have been crazy busy on “Live From Studio Five!” For two consecutive Wednesdays, the gang put on two live shows featuring six different bands. There was a mix of tragedy and triumph, as the live shows at the Nomad World Pub were great—but unfortunately, a large segment of the first night’s performance two weeks ago went unaired due to some insurmountable technical hiccups.
But Dewglass held down the fort at the studio back on Cedar Riverside and kept each show rolling along. He performed more than admirably considering the live feed kept cutting out! Meanwhile, at the Nomad, Doug the Thug was joined by Nicole Jean Rode and Cher Dial, who MC’d each night’s performances.
Six bands played—six! On Wednesday, April 30, the show featured Hot Cellars, Breakfast Anytime, and Hot Cellars. A week later on May 7, the show featured the Lost Wheels, the Dirt Road Ramblers, and Bouncer Fighter. It was a diverse lineup, and hopefully the recordings of those live shows will make their way to air sometime soon. In the meantime, make sure to check out the above video of Dirt Road Ramblers, not to mention the mountains of photos taken at the shows.
Things are back to Studio Five at KFAI tonight, so be sure to tune in from 10 p.m. to midnight to hear the music of Stacy Lee. And check back here on the blog to find out how the show went later this week. You never know what’s going to happen on “Live From Studio Five!” And that’s what makes it so great.
