On Monday’s edition of “The Freak Power Ticket” (September 22), your cruise director Ted Coe will be leading you on a two-part musical journey.

First, the program will look ahead to three upcoming Santa Barbara-area concerts:

Clairy Browne & the Bangin’ Rackettes 9/24/14 in Santa Barbara (Publicity: WA Event Management & Consulting) – CLICK TO ENLARGE

This week’s performance by Australian retro-soul group Clairy Browne & The Bangin’ Rackettes, with The Fire Department (from Isla Vista)  and KCSB’s own DJ Darla Bea, at the new downtown venue The Blind Tiger (on Wednesday, September 24, 8pm).

Los Angeles’s own rock’n’soul revivalist Nick Waterhouse with Latin-Soul orchestra Boogaloo Assassins, on Thursday, October 17, 8pm at Velvet Jones nightclub, a concert presented by KCSB-FM during the 6th Annual New Noise Conference & Music Festival.

KCSB’s co-presentation of the “Hello World! Free Isla Vista Concert” on Saturday, October 25, which will feature two LA bands, the Latin psychedelic-fusion quartet Chicano Batman and the Eastside’s mexico68 Afrobeat Orchestra, plus Tijuana’s electronic-music trio Los Macuanos.

After a “retro-revival psych and soul” oriented segment (with a Clairy Browne ticket giveaway!), “The Freak Power Ticket” will then shift gears with a longer set of synth-pop, New Wave, “minimal wave,” post-punk, and the music of Madchester, and more, from the late-1960s-1980s, and today.

Special guest Dusty Ineman of Gardens & Villa will call in from Salt Lake City as Santa Barbara’s most popular indie rock group winds its way east on a fall concert tour. Ineman, G&V’s auxiliary player/percussionist and the co-host of KCSB’s former music program “The Jacuzzi,” will share stories and reflections on his band and their influences.

“The Freak Power Ticket” airs on Mondays during KCSB’s summer schedule from 11am-1pm PDT.
