NPR Plugs the Kamikaze Hearts Reunion at Rest Fest
If you’re about to reunite your old band to play your first show in five years, wouldn’t it be nice to get some publicity?
No, I mean some really cool publicity.
Like maybe a shout-out and a spin on National Public Radio’s “All Songs Considered”…
Yeah, now that would be cool.
And that’s exactly what happened to the Kamikaze Hearts, who are featured on this week’s edition of “All Songs Considered.” The episode is titled “The Most Important Band Of Your College Years,” and co-hosts Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton chat with a KHearts fan and spin the band’s “Beverly Hills” to kick off the show, most of which features such high-powered, major-label hitmakers as R.E.M., U2, Neil Young and others. Listen to the show here…
Of course, if you want to see Kamikaze Hearts’ big reunion show, just head down to the Restoration Festival at the former St. Joseph’s Church in Albany on Friday night. The show gets underway with Better Pills (7pm), followed by Common Prayer (8:15pm) before the KHearts kick off their headlining set at 9pm. Tix are $20 in advance; $25 at the door. Or you can buy a three-day, all-fest ticket for $40 in advance; $50 at the door.
