Although radio broadcast is our first love, bringing live music to campus is one of KSPC’s favorite off-the-air activities. Experience the beauty of FREE, LIVE, LOCAL MUSIC for yourself by coming out to our next show (on FRIDAY at 9PM) and reading this review of our first live music event of the semester!
Volunteer Emily Macune walks us through that first Art After Hours, a late-night art museum event where KSPC regularly hosts free live music, with a delightful play-by-play accompanied by photos. To set the stage: It was a crisp January night outside the art museum as the bands prepared to perform…
First up to the stage was Party Cuts. Having just recorded a new EP: “Wanting”, Party Cuts came out strong for the last show of their winter break, and the first of our spring semester.
After recommending the new Haitian art exhibit at the Pomona Museum of Art, the band rocked out so hard that Mark,the leader singer and guitarist, broke one of his guitar strings.
Second up to the stage was Whesli. Taking things down a notch, Whesli started things off with a soulful cover of Amy Winehouse’s “You Know I’m No Good.”
Whesli got the crowd involved by singing covers of popular catchy songs while her singing her own original songs including her new single, “divorce.”
Both Party Cuts and Whesli caught my attention as new and upcoming performers. Whether you are into punk rock or folky jazz, both of these bands have a great sound and amazing potential. Be sure to check them out on Bandcamp!
For more free shows, be sure to come to Art After Hours every other Thursday (the next being on March 10th) at the Pomona College Museum of Art, with live music starting at 9 PM!
