Live on Kaleidoscope: The Dirty Socialites

The Dirty Socialites

After branching off from another band, Gretta, Derek and Angie formed the Dirty Socialites to explore their varied musical influences.  They do just that on their debut album Amor or Armor, which was a completely homegrown project from the recording and mastering to the artwork. 

The band visited the WYSO studios to perform live and talk about their process for creating an album - from writing to recording - all in the same room.  The Dirty Socialites will perform at South Park Tavern on April 16th.

Honeymoon Live on Kaleidoscope

The 3 members of Honeymoon haven't been playing together long, but the instant chemistry between the players has made for well-crafted and increasingly complex songwriting.  The band's mutual musical influences have resulted in a poppy sound with a darker edge on their debut EP Xylography. 

Honeymoon visited the WYSO studios for a live set on Kaleidoscope and chatted with host Juliet Fromholt about forming the band, recording and what's to come for the band.

Live on Kaleidoscope: Eric Mahoney, Director of North Dixie Drive

  • Hear the full interview.

North Dixie Drive is the portrait of a neighborhood that's been a long time in the making.  Filmmaker Eric Mahoney was inspired by his in-laws, Israeli immigrants who own a body shop on the title street, and thought about documenting the place for several year before taking the plunge to make the film.  Here Mahoney discusses the process of making the film and the characters he found along the way.

North Dixie Drive premiering at the Neon Movies this weekend. The premier on March 26th is sold out, but addition showings have been added on April 1, 2 and 3 at the Neon Movies.
