Bryk on Definitely Not The Opera!

Dan Bryk will be appearing on CBC Radio One’s Definitely Not The Opera this Saturday Sept 15th.

Bryk will be interviewed by host Sook-Yin Lee, and has been asked to perform an acoustic version of Discount Store.

DNTO airs Saturday afternoons across Canada at 1:00 p.m. (1:30 in Newfoundland) on CBC Radio One.

You can also catch the show on Sirius Satellite Radio channel 137 – Saturdays at 11:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m.

And if you’re in Chicago or Seattle, you can catch the show on public radio: WBEZ in Chicago Sunday at midnight, and on KXOT in Seattle Saturday at 9:00 a.m.

UPDATE: We managed to record the interview from WBEZ, and we’ve archived it here.

Bryk on CBC, Lovers Leap Reviews

Bryk’s interview with Shelagh Rogers will actually be on the air the morning of Labour Day Monday, Sept. 3rd, not Friday 31st as previously noted here.

Bryk has a nice little article in this week’s Toronto Eye Weekly.

Review of Discount Store (and a stream) in last week’s Indy

A Discount Store review, this one from the Daily Tar Heel’s Diversions Blog. (Dan will be playing the Diversions Party at Local 506 with Schooner and Red Collar September 29th.)

Corey and Dan on the Radio this week…

Some more cool radio interviews this week:

Dan and Corey will be live on Toronto’s Commercial Alternative Powerhouse 102.1 The Edge (us old timers still call it CFNY) this Friday around 6:15 PM to talk about their alleged careers and their “big Toronto show” at C’est What? (also this Friday, starting around 10 PM, with Noyan Hilmi of Five Blank Pages representing for the 905).

This is been a serious life-long dream of Bryk’s, as they will chat with Toronto indie music icon Dave Bookman, and have promised not to swear as much as they do on their records. CFNY has a live stream for you out-of-towners.

Dan will also be the interview guest of Shelagh Rogers(!) on CBC Radio One’s Sounds Like Canada this Friday morning at 10 AM EST. Tune in across Canada on CBC Radio One, or listen on the internets.

Through the elfin magic of ISDN (we prefer to think it’s “the pixies”), Dan sat down at WUNC’s studios in Chapel Hill and had a nice chat with Shelagh, who’s in Vancouver. How cool is that?

Bull City Rock WXDU

Today at 5 PM EST Bull City are going to be playing a full-on rock show live on the air on 88.7 FM WXDU Durham. Those of you outside of the Durham/Chapel Hill area can listen live on the WXDU.org website.

We realize that this notice is a little late (our bad!) but please tune in if you can! And thanks to host (and Triangle rock guru) Ross Grady for having both Bryk and Bull City on this summer.

Sunday, 8/26 @ 5 PM

Lee on WFMU

lee_rooftop

Lee Feldman marks his return to the venerable studio of New Joisey’s mighty freeform station WFMU this coming Monday.

Lee live on WFMU (91.1 FM)
Irene Trudel’s show
Monday, March 19th
3 – 6 pm
Interwebcast live at www.wfmu.org  

WFMU’s website says: Evoking platitudes from reviewers such as, “Harry Nilsson meets Fats Waller,” and “Randy Newman by way of Lou Reed and Paul Simon,” Lee Feldman is a very entertaining singer, pianist, and songwriter. His third album, “I’ve Forgotten Everything” is, according to Stereophile Magazine, “unlike anything else in contemporary pop.” Lee is also the creator of STARBOY, an animated musical about a 2-dimensional superhero who lives with his uncle, a Mathematician. Lee brings his trio to WFMU.

Hell, if we were to write a press release, it would probably go something like that!

(FYI, Dan Bryk’s recent WFMU appearance (on Pseu Braun’s show) has been archived for your listening plaisir here).

Lee on NPR’s New Sounds

Lee Feldman was featured alongside Antony, Ed Pastorini, Bjork, Susanne Abbeuhl and Peter Gabriel(!) in a recent WNYC New Sounds program entitled Piano and Voice.

“Not So Simple Songs: This New Sounds highlights evocative but enigmatic songs for that apparently simplest of combinations – piano and voice.”
