KEXP Live PerformancesMarch 17: Earlier in the month, we told you about the Music That Matters podcast from Seattle’s great public radio station, KEXP. Another KEXP offering that we thought deserves a mention during Podcasting News’ 31 Days of Free Music is their excellent podcast Live Performances.

The weekly podcast features live sets from a wide range of bands, including up-and-coming acts, like Austin’s freaky Ghostland Observatory and Philly’s Dr. Dog, as well as older indie favorites, like Belle and Sebastian and Billy Bragg. Music is interspersed with talk with the band members.

Most of the weekly podcasts originate from KEXP’s Seattle studios, but several times a year, the KEXP staff travel to New York, Chicago, and events like the South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas, to record batches of live performances.

Now matter where you live, podcast like this let you learn about hot bands that you might not otherwise be exposed to.
