On Yr Radio: Linus Pauling Quartet, Tonight

You may’ve heard already, but just in case, be warned/psyched/aware that awesome psych/stoner-rocker dudes the Linus Pauling Quartet will be imploding the confines of the KTRU studios tonight as part of the ever-entertaining Local Show.

And because their “press release” for the thing is just too damn nerdishly entertaining (to me, at any rate), I feel compelled to break all kinds of journalistic protocol & post it up here. Enjoy…:

Yes, fans of guitar string frequency oscillation – tonight is your night.
The Linus Pauling Quartet will be playing The KTRU Local Show and we guarantee such exciting fare as:
* 82.41 Hz
* 110.00 Hz
* 146.83 Hz
* 196.00 Hz
* 246.94 Hz
* 329.63 Hz

Yes, hear flat or sharp guitars constantly increasing or decreasing their
oscillations in a vain attempt to reach and maintain these ideal

BONUS DVD features include:
* feel the rush of dirty pots on wah pedals squeaking!!!
* experience Mexican radio through a Vox amp!!!
* marvel at vocal mic feedback!!
* hear such classic catch phrases as “Is this in Drop-D?” and “How does this
song go again?”
* your mind will be blown with erratic tempo shifts, solos in the wrong key,
and epic string breakage!!!

How can you say no to that? Answer: you can’t. Not sure when they’ll be playing, but the Local Show runs from 8-10PM — start your listening early so you don’t miss it…
