The Music & Arts Guild Showcase, Episode 66 :: Mikea LaPierre

Hosted by James McGee 7 September, 2017

From an old converted barbershop inside the area’s largest all-nude strip club comes the seventy-fourth episode of The Music & Arts Guild Showcase with your host, James McGee.

AM1700 is joining forces with The Music & Arts Guild to form a supergroup not seen since The Birthday Party and members of Einsturzende Neubauten and Magazine teamed up to form Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.

Focusing on local music with weekly live, in-studio performances, the Music & Arts Guild Showcase aims to spotlight bands that are making great music in the area. James handcrafts each show by picking out only the best in local music.

Mikea LaPierre is James’ guest this week in the studio. Mikea’s highly personal songs ebb and flow with emotion and loss. She delivers a truly remarkable performance. So much so that James begins to sob a little at the beauty of her lyrics and melodies.
