My KUTX: Nina Diaz

Artist of the Month

My KUTX: Nina Diaz

Posted by on Oct 21, 2016

Nina Diaz is the KUTX Artist of the Month for October.

Nina Diaz has been a leading light for Texas music thanks to her barnstorming band Girl In A Coma. But on October 28, she’s making her solo debut with The Beat Is Dead, an eclectic record that chronicles her sobriety and tries out some new sounds along the way. Diaz effortlessly combines hard rock, punk, and dance elements, and she’s still a force of nature onstage. Catch her live in Studio 1A on Tuesday, October 25 at 8:30 p.m. and at 3TEN at ACL Live on Thursday, October 27.

This week on My KUTX, Diaz is our guest DJ, playing a selection of songs that have influenced her throughout her life. She also talks about touring with Morrissey, performing with Selena’s family, and fighting back against misogyny in the music industry. Tune in Saturday, October 22 at 6 p.m. or listen anytime at the bottom of the page.

Andrew W.K. is responsible for one of the greatest album covers and party anthems in music history. He is also an incredibly nice guy, recently taking time out of his motivational speaking tour (called “The Power Of Partying,” of course) to come party as our guest DJ. His set ranges from avant-garde and disco to piano-driven rock-and-roll and memorable soundtrack moments.

Over the past few years, Dripping Springs’ Israel Nash has tapped back into the Hill Country’s cosmic country past. His most recent albums–2015’s Silver Season and 2014’s Rain Plans–are psychedelic Americana gems, full of Nash’s yearning melodies and guitar freakouts.

Nash and his band brought this widescreen sound to ACL Fest and KUTX Live at the Four Seasons (which you can relive here). This week on My KUTX, Nash also digs deep into his record collection to play some of his influences and favorite artists. Hear his guest DJ set on Saturday, October 8 at 6 p.m. or listen now at the bottom of the page.
