On Monday, February 14th, Santa Barbara indie-rockers Gardens & Villa returned to KCSB for a Valentine’s Day performance, interview, & DJ set on “The Freak Power Ticket.” The appearance marked the release of G&V‘s first 7-inch record, and tonight’s performance at SOhO Restaurant and Nightclub. G&V performed a selection of unreleased songs, sampled other works, and discussed their recent exploits, including the group’s expansion to five members, production of their first album, and the vinyl recording.

Later tonight, Thursday, February 17th, Club Mercy presents an all-ages show with Gardens & Villa, Omar Velasco, and Alixandra. KCSB is a media supporter of this event.

An edited podcast of Monday’s appearance is now available below.
