"480 Minutes" - new Phantogram, Surfer Blood

Hello and happy Friday to BAGeL Radio listeners everywhere.

We got to see Phantogram this week -- highly recommended.  Even better than the first time we saw them, and the new record is quite good, too.  We'll be debuting a couple of songs from it today, along with new music by Apparat (Berlin, Germany), Atlas Sound (Atlanta, GA), The Beets (Queens, NY), Buraka Soms Sistema (Amadora, Portugal), Carter Tanton (Boston, MA), Ed Hale And The Trancendence (New York, NY), Goodbyemotel (Melbourne, Australia), Hunters (Brooklyn, NY), Jane's Addiction (Los Angeles, CA), M83 (Antibes, France), Particle Wave (Los Angeles, CA), Phantogram (Saratoga Springs, NY), S.C.U.M. (London, England), Ski Lodge (Brooklyn, NY), Surfer Blood (West Palm Beach, FL), This Town Needs Guitars (Oxford, England), Tom Waits (Pomona, CA), Wavves (San Diego, CA), Wise Blood (Pittsburgh, PA), and Zun Zun Egui (Bristol, England).

Today is a good day to get in touch if you are in the Bay Area -- we will have a pair of tickets to give away for tonight's show at The Rickshaw Stop featuring three BAGeL Radio bands: Still Corners, Ganglians, and Silver Swans.  I'm going to be there and it's going to be a good show, so when you hear a Still Corners song on BAGeL Radio during 480 Minutes tomorrow, get in touch for a chance to win yourself a free pair of tickets to the show (even if you are under 21 -- this show is All Ages!).  Alternately you can buy advance tickets here.

(We may have tickets to give away for other shows as well, but we are waiting for confirmation).

To see the album art and song titles while listening on your smartphone or tablet, try one of the TuneIn Radio apps.

If you are listening with good headphones or speakers, access our high fidelity stream provided by SomaFM here.  You can also try their most excellent pop-up player here, or buy the SomaFM Radio Player desktop app.
