IMG_9823

I’m thrilled to welcome The Gotobeds, one of my favorite rock/roll outfits going today, to 103.3 fm WPRB this Wednesday night for a career-spanning (uh, sure!) 10 song live session – including a slew of songs off their forthcoming Sub Pop full-length.

If you don’t own the band’s debut LP for 12XU “Poor People Are Revolting,” you’re missing out on 2014’s best record and I suggest you rectify that horrific oversight presently.

Stream it below.
