Bill Esparza, also known as Street Gourmet LA, joins us in the studio to talk about winning the James Beard Award for food coverage, Latin American cuisine, and how it all comes together in Los Angeles.
In the second half of the show, the band Huh delivers a live in-studio performance. Huh are a heady, shreddy new rock band from New York City with a new EP and a new video. The four-piece creates thick, melodic sounds with whiffs of mid-'90s nostalgia and the occasional nod to Dad Rock. Onstage, their energetic set flows effortlessly from fast-paced, danceable tunes to dark, alluring ballads.
Friends from around town, guitarist/vocalist Tia Vincent-Clark (The Fugue; Queening; Pygmy Shrews) singer Carrie-Anne Murphy (Bad Credit No Credit; Clapperclaw), and drummer Ryann Slauson (Sleepy Vikings; Loins; Giddy-Up, Helicopter!) played their first show in September of 2015. Bassist Molly Jean Schoen, fresh to NYC from Detroit, joined in early 2016.
