Pete Yorn at Apogee Studios
Santa Monica, California
February 23, 2016
Last night I had the privilege of seeing Pete Yorn, with his new touring band, play at Apogee Studios in Santa Monica for Jason Bentley’s hosted KCRW radio show. The interview and 10 song set will play on KCRW, and be featured on their website, on March 11.
March 11 is a special day for Pete Yorn fans, as it marks the release of the long-awaited, sixth solo album, ArrangingTime. You can pre-order the album on Pete’s website – click here – and you can also check-out his tour dates and get yourself a set of tickets – I’ll be going to the San Francisco show in April- which show will you be at?
I don’t want to spoil anything about the KCRW show. I won’t mention the songs performed except to say many of my favorites were played. I will also say that the show was incredible, Pete and the band sounded fantastic, and the venue was phenomenal in terms of acoustics and energy. I encourage you to tune in on March 11 and have a listen – oh, and pick up the album, too.
There were no photos or phones allowed during the show, so the photos included are from two different photographers, and were taken pre and/or post show (you can click on their names and see some of their other great work, too).
While we all wait patiently for March 11, I will leave you with a comprehensive Pete Yorn playlist that includes almost two hours of my favorite songs of Pete’s. Stay tuned for the week of March 11 when I will do a countdown to the album, and, of course, on the day, review the album and the KCRW live show.
