Our Week In Music: Washington State Playlist, Exclusive Video Performances, & Music/Comedy Combos

In case you couldn’t keep up with the musicians, bands, and artists we’ve been throwing at you all week, here’s a quick recap …


This week, on The Music Meetup, host Elena Childers chatted with Night Beats frontman Danny Lee Blackwell about life, old-school twang, and the brand new album Outlaw R&B—which you can also hear here!


We also had a new episode of Spotlight On the City—this time featuring local acts from Tacoma, Washington.


For BTR Live Studio (at Home), host Jen Meller chatted with Brooklyn-based Golden Alphabet (core members Tommy Cormier and Kendra Kovarik) about the release of their new album Removable Baby Jesus, the songwriting process, and life in quarantine—along with an exclusive performance.


Plus, on another new BTR Live Studio (At-Home), host Meller also chatted with Ian and Rachel of the Brooklyn-based rock duo Phantom Wave. They discussed the songwriting process, the release of their newest album Wilds, and pandemic life.
