California duo Foxygen was back in town Sunday night to get their fans’ week started off right, and to promote their new album Hang. Fans filled up Union Transfer quickly as the night began with Australian-songwriter Gabriella Cohen setting the mood. Cohen came on stage with band mate Kate Dillion to ease everyone in to her opening set with a quiet number. As the first song was wrapping up the rest of her band came out to keep the serenading vibe going while taking it up a notch at times. The whole set was filled with songs which flowed together brilliantly to grab the full attention of the audience.

The stage was then set with lights strung over the pianos, center stage was clear for maximum dancing room, and the crowd anxiously awaited the headliners to take the stage. When Foxygen’s set began, they got the audience intrigued by kicking off with a few old favorites, including “We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic” and “San Francisco.” Continue reading →

The show is all ages, and more information can be found on our XPN Concert Calendar. Continue reading →

The Indie Rock Hit Parade is back tonight with things for you to enjoy and things for you to look forward to. Listen starting at 11pm ET on WXPN (and whaddya know, that’s right after What’s The Frequency??? with John Vettese! for a full two hour show that features the newly released second album from Australian rave-pop trio Jagwar Ma. Seeing how Jagwar Ma’s 2013 debut, Howlin’, was one of my favorite albums of that year (and continues to sound fresh), Every Now & Then is a much-welcome sequel. We’ll hear a few tracks from it on tonight’s IRHP Album Spotlight. Also in the mix tonight are new tracks from Nashville guitar army Diarrhea Planet and Cleveland’s premier bedroom pop project-turned-punk crew Cloud Nothings, who both recently recorded live sessions in our studio to be shared in the coming weeks! Be on the lookout, too, for new things from Foxygen, Mitski, Nicolas Jaar and more…
