The Music & Arts Guild Showcase, Episode 84 :: Hardigrade

Hosted by James McGee 8 March, 2018

From an old converted barbershop inside the area’s largest all-nude strip club comes the eighty-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.

In this week’s episode, Stephen Woida Jr. of Luxury Flux fame comes back into the studio with his solo project, Hardigrade. He deftly blends synths and strong vocals into waves and waves of shoegazy perfection.
