Rob W was interviewed on WYNC’s Soundcheck on April 21, along with fellow bearded Angeleno Zac Holtzman from Dengue Fever. Rob defended his beard as leading the trend of bearded alienated musicians. Listen to the archived show here:

Rob and Paul L took part in the New Songs Swap, with Peter Case and Laura Love at Schoenberg Hall, UCLA, last Saturday, part of the Ash Grove 50th Anniversary Celebration.

Dave Alvin was scheduled host, but couldn’t be there. His best pal and consummate roots rocker Chris Gaffney passed away earlier in the week. See you on the other side, Chris.Peter Case led the charge as host with the most, and dazzling fingerpicking and poignant poetic ultra personal songs. Laura Love was also dazzling, and fearless, playing serious funk bass while belting out her blues folk. The three boys on acoustic guitars backed her up and it was a groove.

Rob and Paul had quite the acts to follow, but we stepped up with some old and new songs. It was quite inspiring to preach to the folkie concerned about the future choir. We’re out there, some of us vote, and we’re not going away. The UCLA campus was crawling with folk energy old and new, and it felt very good.More on the Ash Grove
