The Deer Live on KDNK

19 hours ago

"I'm drinking up morphine/Straight from the vial/Me in my darkness/You in my mind."

The Deer, Austin's answer to Elephant Revival, has an elliptical way with a lyric and delicate but complex melodies that surround and suffuse the words, and it adds up to something psychedelic and irresistable. They were in town to play at Steve's Guitars and they dropped by KDNK to say hello and play Winter to Pry and Up Into Roses from their recent CD Tempest and Rapture. They also played an older song, Shades of Tiffany

KDNK's local newscast airs weekday mornings at 6:41 and 7:41, and again at 5:34 PM.

Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords has a message for members of Congress who are citing the possibility of protests as a reason not to hold town meetings: "Have some courage."

Giffords, wounded in a 2011 shooting outside a Tucson supermarket where she was meeting with constituents, was responding to a statement by Republican Congressman Louis Gohmert of Texas. Asked why he wasn't holding public meetings, Gohmert said:

President Trump has promised to build a wall along the 2,000 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border.

A third of that border already has a barrier, thanks to the Secure Fence Act of 2006, which was signed by then-President George W. Bush. That initiative ran into issues with landowners near the Rio Grande. If the wall goes forward as Trump promises, more lawsuits may be coming.

KDNK's local newscast airs weekdays at 6:41 and 7:41 and again at 5:34 PM.
