"480 Minutes" - new Elbow, Frightened Rabbit, Islands, Kills

Man that was a great show, thanks to everyone who came out to see Handsome Furs and Railcars earlier this week. Not only were the performances stellar, there were only two bands, which meant I got to DJ more than usual, which was great fun. I love DJing at Bottom of the Hill.

Speaking of me DJing at the Bottom of the Hill, there are two upcoming BAGeL Radio Presents... shows to tell you about: Magic Bullets/ Lemon Sun/ Rosewood Thieves @ Bottom on 5/8, and The Heavenly States/ Throw Me The Statue/ Siberian @ Bottom on 5/31.

New music featured today during "480 Minutes" will include a massive influx of 40+ new songs by artists including Frightened Rabbit (Selkirk, UK), Calibrated Crematorium (Chicago, IL), Islands (Montreal, Canada), The Kills (London, UK), The Long Blondes (Sheffield, UK), Animal Collective (Philadelphia, PA), Pattern Is Movement (Philadelphia, PA -- yes, two Philly bands in the same week, bizarre, I know), Annuals (Raleigh, NC), Animal Collective (Baltimore, MD), Blue Scholars (Seattle, WA), The Black Angels (Austin, TX), Father Bloopy (Miami Beach, FL), Dimension Zero (not to be confused with the now-defunct Swedish band of the exact same name)(Salt Lake City, UT), DulceSky (Salt Lake City, UT -- yes, two SLC bands in the same week, bizarre, I know), M83 (Antibes, France), Pink Skull (Philadelphia, PA), Gospel Gossip (Northfield, MN), Railcars (San Francisco, CA), Vitamin Party (sounds like if, about 15 years ago, someone had slipped one too many Red Bull & vodkas to Pavement and said, "OK, now go and try and make a record") (SF/Berkeley CA), Skamper (Los Angeles, CA), Love Psychedelico (Japan), Nik Freitas (Los Angeles, CA), You Me & Iowa (Los Angeles, CA), and Elbow (Manchester, UK). Oh, yeah, and Weezer (Los Angeles, CA), too.

Please tune in to "480 Minutes" today and every Friday. The show runs live from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific Time, then is rebroadcast starting at 7 p.m., then twice more on Saturday. On Saturday night at midnight we return to regular BAGeL Radio programming.
