On September 26th, 2012, much earlier in the day than any rock band should, we headed to the KEXP studios to do a live performance on Cheryl Water’s Midday Show. Inconspicuously roaming amongst us were a few folks with cameras. This is what they shot:
“As the Clouds Drift By”
“Ever Feel So Down”
“Free to Go Back Home”
Host: Cheryl Waters
Engineer: Kevin Suggs
Cameras: Jim Beckmann & Scott Holpainen
Editing: Luke Knecht
Song Sparrow Research live at the Tractor Tavern. 23 September 2012.

We’re excited and honored to be playing Seattle’s City Arts Fest 2012 alongside a huge lineup of really incredible artists. Our show is Thursday October 18th with Dusty 45s, Vince Mira Band, and Legendary Oaks at Barboza. Start time is 7pm and we’re up first so if you plan on coming out make sure not to miss our set.
Tune in today for a live performance on KEXP. We’ll be playing a few songs off our new, second album plus a new, as-yet-unreleased song and speaking with Cheryl Waters during her Midday Show. 90.3 on your radio dial if you’re in Seattle or anywhere around the world at KEXP.org.
Be sure to RSVP to our Facebook event as part of the online listening party.
