This past weekend, the WFNX Sapporo House was a haven for bands escaping Coachella's Empire Polo Grounds, doing some radio interviews and dropping a few acoustic "kitchen sets." Friday afternoon, the flash blokes in British rock band KASABIAN dropped by for a chat, then while everyone else was out in the back by the pool or chilling in the living room, vocalist Tom Meighan, guitarist Serge Pizzorno, and drummer Ian Matthews saddled up to the kitchen table for some acoustic numbers.
M83's Anthony Gonzalez
This is where we'll be uploading WFNX's interviews with M83's Anthony Gonzalez, the Vaccines, and AWOLNATION, and live tracks by Casey from the Dear Hunter and Kasabian. We'll update as the audio and video rolls in.
Also: as you can see, Liz Pelly broke our brains by introducing us to Cinemagram, which we've adopted as our own now that Instagram is Facegram.
For the Anglophile rock fan there's always something slightly depressing about seeing one of your favorite UK bands play in Boston at a venue that's slightly too big for them. It's like watching your little brother running around the yard in hand-me-downs. You can see how they're supposed to grow into them, but for now the sleeves are way too floppy.
