Alert Blasternauts! In this live episode Kyle sings and plays an excerpt from a song he wrote for a high school crush and Tig plays the drums with her hands. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Guest and musician, Trevor Anderson, comes on and explains the science behind music and the reasons we love it. Plus Chicago accents, breaking down song lyrics, and the legend of the ninth symphony. Then a game of “What’s Nuts” that happens while Tig and Kyle bang, a music based Q and A with the audience that turns into an explanation of everything, and a great round of “Name That Punky”. Enjoy. It’s a special one! Recorded by Asim Ali at The Abbey Chicago.
