Savages live on The Current today, KCRW tomorrow

By Hector on Monday, July 22nd, 2013

Hey Twin Cities, were you doing something last night that caused you to miss out on seeing the band that pretty much owned Pitchfork Festival? Well stop kicking yourself, Sally, because if you listen to The Current tonight at 8:00PM EDT/7:00PM CDT, you can get a taste of what you missed when Jehnny, Gemma, Ayse & Fay rip through what is sure to be a blistering set of songs. Listen at 89.3FM in Minneapolis/St. Paul or online at thecurrent.org.

If you, on the other hand, are the sort who prefers his or her blisters to be a little earlier in the day, you’ll want to give a listen to KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic tomorrow, where Savages will be going live at 2:15PM EDT/11:15AM PDT in advance of their two sold out shows at the El Rey. Tune in at 89.9FM or kcrw.com.
