KVRX Local Live Vol. 11: Assacre to Zookeeper

Time to dive into Austin's musical wealth. And KVRX knows it. In this 11th installment of the college radio frequency's Sunday night program, the glorious (Peter & the Wolf, Possessed by Paul James) and the not-so (Cry Blood Apache, the Moaners, Ghostland Observatory) are caught on disc, while a companion DVD courtesy of Texas Student Television rounds out. See double Tee Double! Performances from 2003 to 2006 revolve around the Hold Steady's prefame jitters, Smog's uneasy ooze, and Paul James' freak-out, repeating only Pompeii's emo-rific "Pythons, Awake!" from CD to DVD. A successful compilation should cover all bases, and after years of experience, KVRX masters the mix. We're gonna go listen to Zookeeper's closer, "Modern Living," on repeat now. "None of the hits all of the time."
