Listen To Live In-Studios From Amanda X And The Spirit Of The Beehive At 12PM Today, 8/17

WVFS Tallahassee is excited to announce that today, August 17th, 2015, we will be hosting two live bands in our studio for special performances on our 12 O’Clock Takeover program: Amanda X and The Spirit Of The Beehive. Both have been recent favorites in our rotation at V89, and will be stopping by on their way out of Tallahassee after playing a show at the Midtown Speakeasy with Ex-Breathers and Buffalo Buffalo.

Formed in 2012, Amanda X is a trio from Philadelphia, who released their debut album Amnesia in 2014 to much acclaim from the national and international DIY rock community. Their sound consists of driving melodies, gauzy guitars, and plenty of vocal harmonies in a post-punk context. They are signed to Siltbreeze Records.

The Spirit Of The Beehive is also from Philadelphia, although they are a five-piece group. They play a brand of loose, loud, and unpredictable shoegaze music, and are now touring on the release of their EP, You Are Arrived (But You’ve Been Cheated), out now on Ranch and Ice Age Records.

Amanda X and The Spirit Of The Beehive will be performing in advance of their show in Gainesville on August 17th, which will take place at The Atlantic. To listen to recordings of both bands, check out the Bandcamp links below. To hear them on-air, tune in at noon on August 17th! And for more information on upcoming in-studio performances and other special events on WVFS Tallahassee, check out the News section of our website.
