NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: BASTILLE - "DOOM DAYS"

Those happy guys in Bastille are back with new tunes in the form of the track “Doom Days.” If you loved “Happier” so much that you endlessly texted LIKE to 55701 when you heard it on ALT 92.3….well…you may not be into this one. That’s not to say it’s bad by any means. It just certainly isn’t “...

THROWBACK THURSDAY: LIT - "ZIP-LOCK"

You ask anybody in any bar ever to name a Lit song, they’re going to yell back “My Own Worst Enemy.” That’s the one that gets all the praise. That’s the one we play. Iconic music video of the guys bowling. I remember first seeing it as a kid and trying to figure out how someone could get their car...

HOW GREAT WERE POP PUNK COVERS?

I was chatting it up with The Maine a couple weeks back and we were joking that I know every word to Akon’s “I Wanna Love You” thanks to them. The Pop-Punk band covered the “Lonely” star’s hit back in 200-something and I, a then impressionable youth, took to it like guy-liner to Hot Topic. This...

KEVAN'S SONG OF THE DAY: "HAZEL" - ROY BLAIR

If you’re a hardcore fan of ALT 92.3, you may remember us playing some Roy Blair last summer. He’s a kid based out of LA that hangs with the BROCKHAMPTON fellas. He’s got this great song “Hazel” which is the color I tell girls my eyes are. I don’t even know what hazel is. Like, my eyes are brown,...

Happy Anniversary Lou Bega, Here's An Alt Cover Of Your Only Hit

Social media is great for a ton of stuff. Instagram gives you a peek into the latest viral dance craze that explains the top 10 hit you’ve never heard of. Facebook shows you how out of touch old people are and Twitter celebrates anniversaries that arguably never had to be acknowledged. One such...

NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: THE DANGEROUS SUMMER - "WAY DOWN"

Little tune I came across today I thought you might dig. Little heavier than some stuff you hear on the station, but it’s got the alternative spirit in my book. Song is called Way Down and the band is called The Dangerous Summer. Cheers to hoping we all enjoy one of those. The guys have a new...

THROWBACK THURSDAY: FINCH - "WHAT IT IS TO BURN"

2002-2003 was a great time for alternative. It's weird thinking how young I was jamming out to music as heavy as my throwback pick this week - Finch's "What It Is To Burn." MTV2 used to play a lot of music back then and their Rock block of videos was always appointment television for me. Hey kids,...

Kevan May Never Have to Pay a Speeding Ticket Ever Again

I filled in for Bryce Wednesday night, after our regular night guy allegedly fled the market to start a farm in Washington. "I want to run with the cows" was apparently the line they heard him say right before making a line for the door. Or at least that’s what one of the sales guys whispered to me...

MUSIC DISCOVERY: HEART ATTACK MAN - "FAKE BLOOD"

Rad band I found, thought I'd pass along. They're from Cleveland, Ohio - a surprisingly great town for alternative music. Their name is Heart Attack man and the songs called "Fake Blood." Ch-ch-ch-ch-check it out holmes. Video of Heart Attack Man - "Fake Blood" (official video)

Kevan Sucked Up To His Boss and All He Got Was This Blog

It was my boss's birthday last week and I just so happened to be in the dog house, so figured this was a great opportunity to earn some much needed brownie points. The Nightcap is on very late, so if this plan doesn't read as well on a full 8 hours compared to whatever state I was in shouldn't be...
