Facebook Twitter

09/28/2016 - 10:32 AM

The indie rock group TABAH takes the stage for the next installment of the 25th season of Monday Night Live. Hailing from Minneapolis, this electric five piece ensemble pushes to break musical barriers and communicate unity through music. 

TABAH will take the stage in the KVSC performance studio at 9 p.m. for a one-hour performance Monday, October 3. You can listen to the live performance by tuning in to KVSC 88.1FM on your radio and watching the show on UTVS.

Although the band's sound is difficult to place, its sound has been associated with experimental rock, jazz and psychedelia. Get a taste of TABAH's music hereTo view the complete fall MNL lineup, visit the MNL page.

Trivia Storm: 50 Hours of Torrential Trivia

       

KVSC’s 38th annual Trivia Weekend will not arrive until after a crisp fall and winter’s blustery blast. However, we love to taunt teams and volunteers in August with our theme announcement, so, pull out your parka, slip on your rain slicker, and charge up your weather radio for…Trivia Storm: 50-Hours of Torrential Trivia.

For three consecutive days next February 17-19, 2017, Your Sound Alternative will create a brain fog with a hailstorm of questions about all things weather related. The subject is a broad as a high pressure system across the Midwest. Who was the first victim in Sharknado 2? How did they come up with the name for mammatus clouds? Why does November 11, 1940 mean so much to so many Minnesotans?

So set your thermostat to trivia climate and if it involves our obsession with inconvenient truths… it’s part of the cyclone of questions for Trivia Storm: 50-Hours of Torrential Trivia.

Trivia Volunteers, prepare for the flood of answers and hop on our phone bank of telemetry stations at KVSC next February.

Prepare to enter the atmosphere that is Trivia Storm: 50-Hours of Torrential Trivia.
