KDVS – Live In Studio A – in need of Local bands

If you don’t already know, each week KDVS presents an hour-long program featuring different bands from all over California and the world of every style imaginable called Live In Studio A (L.I.S.A.).

It has been brought to our attention that they are currently in need of local bands from the Sacramento and Davis area to come and play!

So if your band, or a band you know are interested in getting in-contact with Studio A to book a date for this year, be sure and send them a message to the following e-mail address:

Booking: Lisa@kdvs.org (Address your message to JOHN)

We cannot express the importance of being persistent because this is an invitation-only program and they only check their e-mails occasionally. If you don’t get a response right away KEEP TRYING.

Also remember to send in a physical copy of your album to KDVS and mark it to the attention of the appropriate DJ. We recently visited the studio and noticed the NEW local music bin was a bit bare, and if they have your music they can play it on air!

For all the information you have ever wanted about Live In Studio A be sure to check out their web-site:

And we’ve got news of a new G. Green record to be release this year as well. What makes this record so exciting is who is recording this album with them, its none other than Chris Woodhouse. Chris has also worked with major recording artist such as Thee Oh Sees, and Ty Segall. Other local notables who have made records with him include Dog Party and Screature. If you have taken a listen to any of Chris’s recordings you likely will agree they are amazing. It’s going to be exciting to hear what Chris does with this promising local Sacramento punk band!
