Oh, what do we have on the show for you today?  You know, just some BRAND NEW Japandroids, Ty Segall, King Tuff, and Tallest Man on Earth.  Does that sound like your dream concert?  ME TOO.  Good thing BTR knows what’s what and has the sense to bring all this goodness straight to your listening ears.  And don’t forget to check out Facebook and Twitter for all of our latest updates.
TBH, the Rock Show is widely considered to be the hottest show on BTRtoday… It makes hot chocolate look like chocolate ice cream, IHMO. And that’s a fact!
Happy Fashion Friday! On this week’s Sew & Tell, I had the honor of chatting with Penelope Sacorafou of the London-based company Fox & Squirrel. Fox & Squirrel offers a variety of cultural lifestyle walks – tours that take you around London to some of its best fashion, art, and vintage spots. On today’s show, Penelope will talk about how she and co-founder Jojo Provatidou met and started Fox & Squirrel, some of her favorite independent designers in today’s London fashion industry, what “sustainable style” truly means and how they incorporate consumer education into their walks, and potentially detrimental impact that the Olympics could have on local London culture. Plus, new music from a host of great BTR artists, including Dent May, Glen Hansard, The Tallest Man On Earth, The Temper Trap and more. So stick around, and learn how to shop like an Anglophile!
This is the first official Saturday of summer!!  That’s why we’re celebrating on the show with a perfect summer mix.  If you have a barbecue or a drive to the beach, or are just sitting on your roof enjoying the weather, then this is the show for you.  So put on some sunscreen, grab a beer, just sit back and relax, and enjoy the show!
