New Parish

Brandon Caffey

Today's local music is by Zion I. This Oakland hip-hop crew says their new album is meant to be "looking inward at the shadow self, and seeking awareness in the darkness of one's own psyche.”

Many people have decided to share their own most personal moments of teenage-hood publicly. In the show, "Mortified," KALW’s Chris Hambrick does just that – but not under her own name.

Today's Local Music: Field Trips

Jan 2, 2013

There’s not much we can tell you about the band called Field Trips, other than that they're an Oakland band. Field Trips claim to be ”running free and sharing their unhinged grooves” throughout the Bay Area. If this sounds appealing, you’ll want to show up at the New Parish in Oakland tomorrow night (January 03), where they’ll be playing. Doors open at 8pm, and music starts about 9pm.
