Liz Warner w/guest author Brian Smith – Alternate Take
All manner of music, features, conversations and explorations.
On this month’s edition of Alternate Take, I welcome Tucson-based author Brian Smith. Brian will read excerpts from his new collection of short stories called “Spent Saints”, an honest look at life on the edge in all its beauty and decay.
Brian Smith has written for many magazines and alt-weeklies, and his fiction has appeared in a variety of literary journals. He’s an award-winning journalist, first as a staff writer and columnist at Phoenix New Times and then as an editor at Detroit’s Metro Times. Before writing full time, Smith was a songwriter who fronted rock & roll bands Beat Angels and, before that, GAD. He has penned tunes with lots of folks, including Alice Cooper. At one point he overcame heady crystal meth and alcohol addictions. As a kid growing up in Tucson, Ariz., Smith was a national class bicycle racer. He now lives back in Tucson and his debut collection of short stories, Spent Saints, is due out spring 2017.
Brian will read from, sign and discuss his book at Book Soup on Sunset Blvd. this Saturday, April 8th at 5:00 pm.

D Tiberio – Patterns of Lorena
Patterns of Lorena focuses on left-leaning movements in dance, ambient, experimental and computer music. Selections are often in the moody realm but there are no set rules. Expect new sounds from artists both local and abroad, upcoming Timetable releases and guest selectors.

CALLIE – CUTS 01
CUTS 01 / a melting pot of dark wave electronic, footwork, bounce, hip hop, jazz and textured instrumentals all linked together by a cacophony of samples which have been cut, chopped, and screwed from vinyls excavated from the depths of dollar bins around Los Angeles and beyond.
6:00pm – 8:00pm
Jeff Weiss – POW Radio
In the grand tradition of spinoffs (“Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead,” “The Simpsons,” “It’s Pat”) POW Radio is the audible extension of the Passion of Weiss website and label. Expect regional rap, psych-rock, dub, grime, house, and a cleansing tonic of misanthropy. Hosted by Jeff Weiss alongside Torii MacAdams, Paul Thompson, and other writers from the website, POW Radio seeks to dig up obscurities that should be popular and bury popular artists that should be obscure.
8:00pm – 10:00pm
Kristine Barilli – Extravagant Negligence
Kristine lovingly shares her affinity for obscure oddities in her record collection whilst peppering in covers from all over the world. Her radio DJ style doesn’t stray to too far from her sets at music venues and parties around the globe. No genre is safe in this radio program. Priding herself on her ability to bridge the gap between genres, no two sets will ever be the same.
