If you always dreamed of being a member of Giant Sand, now's your chance. KXCI's fall membership drive party is Friday, Aug. 21, at Mercado San Agustin, 100 S. Convento from 5 to 9 p.m. There will be KXCI shakers on hand to use, as Howe Gelb leads the Giant-est Giant Sand Band ever in one song. Can't wait. Louise Le Hir and Flam Chen will also be on hand for this fun night of supporting our lovely local radio station. For more info, go to the event's Facebook page.
