I’ve got two words for you guys this week: MR Fest. The week is FULL of in-studios from bands on the line-up so let’s get started.

First up this week, Reyna and Stephanie will be talking to Austin’s Wiretree! This four-piece band has an indie-pop sound and has collected numerous praises from different music medias including KLRU and Blurt Magazine. They’ll be on at 4:30!

Charlie and Halie will have Technicolor Hearts in the studio on Wednesday at 4:30! I saw these guys for the first time at a KTSW Lunchbox event last semester and you guys–it was a sight to behold. Utilizing all sorts of random instruments, you can’t help but watch and then there’s the violin. Check them out at MR Fest to see what I mean but tune in this Wednesday to learn more about these guys!


Charlie CB

One of your hosts is going to be the guest this Thursday when Charlie CB stops in to chat with Melissa and Shannon on Other Side Drive as, not a host, but a local and amazing hip-hop talent. Tune in at 4:30 to hear more!

Friday is the final taste of MR Fest for this week with the first in-studio at 4:30 featuring Growl, out of Austin. This is a four-piece that describes their sound as post-punk garage surf pop and it is gooood. Seriously, check their stuff out here and then tune in to find out more about this MR Fest artist!

Last but not least, we’ll have Three Leaf in the studio at 5:30! These guys are also friends of KTSW, having played at our free Third Thursday show back in February. They’ve got some great tracks you can check out here and definitely look out for them during MR Fest!

As always, keep it tuned to the other side of radio!
