While I was in college, I had the opportunity to work as DJ and later Program Producer for the college station, KTSW. The music director at the time set up lots of fantastic in-studio performances. In February 2005, Rogue Wave stopped in for a 5 song acoustic set. The band had previously played in the fall of 2004 in the smaller on-air studio.
The band's performance was amazing. Amongst the tracks they played at KTSW was a cover of Nirvana's On A Plain.
The band begins their tour tonight in Portland. For more details on this tour, visit their site or MySpace.
