"480 Minutes" - including a visit from Tuscon's Mostly Bears

Today's show will feature a visit from Mostly Bears (Tucson, AZ), whose album The Ed Mitchell Clinic hit #7 on the BAGeL Radio Airplay Chart this Spring, and whose Only Child EP cracked the BAGeL Radio playlists last summer.

Today's program will contain never-before-heard on BAGeL Radio music including new Feral Children (Maple Valley, WA) (this band is like Arcade Fire meets Animal Collective meets Arcade Fire meets Wolf Parade), The Lost Satellites (Petersburg, VA), Forward Russia (Leeds, UK), Boy Genius (Brooklyn, NY), The Curse Of Company (Sydney, Australia), Elephone (San Francisco, CA), Pop Levi (Los Angeles, CA), The Bug (London, England), mrandmrsmays (Austin, TX), and Passenger (Brighton, England).

Today listeners will win pairs of tickets for the fast-approaching Download Festival at the Shoreline Amphitheatre. The July 19th lineup (that's a week from tomorrow!) includes The Jesus & Mary Chain, Gang Of Four, Atmosphere & Brother Ali, Brand New, Mute Math, Yeasayer, Sia, M83, Mates of State, The Whigs, William Fitzsimmons, Cut Copy, Datarock, Flosstradamus, RJD2, Duke Spirit, Tapes n Tapes, Blitzen Trapper, Louis XIV, Airborne Toxic Event, and De Novo Dahl, amongst others. Tune in and when you hear a song by one of those bands, get in touch and you might just win yourself a pair of free tickets. Or stop leaving your life up to chance -- take charge and buy tickets here for just $20.

If you are looking to see live music in the Bay Area tonight, head on over to Thee Parkside to see today's "480 Minutes' guests, Mostly Bears perform on a bill with Nylon Heart Attack for only $6. Another good option is right down the street from Thee Parkside: friends of BAGeL Radio, The Bay Bridged, are putting on a show over at Bottom of the Hill featuring 20 Minute Loop (CD release party), Caves, and Man-Miracle (single release). Sadly we don't have copies of the 20ML album, nor the M-M single, to play for you today, hopefully next week we will.

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.
