Thanks for visiting KXCI’s Locals Only, in Tucson, AZ.
We’re coming at you this week with another live, in-studio performance from one of our local artists. This week, La Cerca is joining us in Studio 2A for an hour of music and conversation. The show is hosted this week by Sophie Gibson-Rush.
La Cerca is here to offer a warm dosage of psychedelic rock from the old pueblo. In some ways, the darker, rock-edged corners of their upcoming album, Night Bloom, come as a surprise when juxtaposed against the shimmering pop of their previous release, 2015’s Sunrise For Everyone. Not only does it make thematic sense, however, but front man Andrew Gardner (vocals, guitar) proves that he can rock harder and louder than he previously had alongside the band’s Bill Oberdick (guitar), Brian Green (bass), and Tom King (drums).
On the album, Gardner says, “Nighttime in the desert can be very beautiful during the summer. That’s when you can find the Cereus Cactus Flower which only blooms in the dark for one night a year.” The flower features on Night Bloom’s cover out on Xemu Records.
This live performance wouldn’t be possible without the volunteers who help us wrangle all of those angry pixies through the wires, tubes, and airwaves! Thanks goes out to:
