Kirkwood Dellinger Heat Up ASU
ASU's student radio station The Blaze 1330 AM is currently in the midst of their annual Campus Crawl, the station's fall concert series. The first featured local act, Kirkwood Dellinger, took to the stage north of ASU's Memorial Union around lunch time Monday.
Despite midday temperatures creeping to 90, a fiesty sound system and famished college kids scarfing cheap grub, Kirkwood Dellinger plowed through a six-song set. Ringleader Elmo Kirkwood mused that the fuzzed-out speakers made him sound like Kanye West. Set highlights included a classic, not classy, rendition of Jeremih's "Birthday Sex," as well as the KD original "The Attic."
The Tempe-based quartet are currently finishing up recording their new album at Audioconfusion, and will embark on an east coast tour, including a few dates with The Meat Puppets, later this month.
The Blaze's Campus Crawl continues tomorrow with Sister Cities and The Undecided. The Crawl comes to a halt after a local bonanza, a pair-up with When In AZ, at the Downtown Civic Space on Saturday.
Note: Becky Bartowski held a top management position at The Blaze last year.
