New Orleans-based indie-rock outfit Rotary Downs recently made a trip to NYC to give New Yawkers a taste of a new sound emerging from the aftermath of The Storm. While in The Big Apple, Rotary Downs was invited to record a show for New York Public Radio’s esteemed show, Studio 360.

The segment will air this weekend – mostly on Saturday (1/27) and Sunday (1/28). Broadcasting times are varied nationwide so check your local station listings here. There is also a podcast and other downloads available here.

Tune in to hear the stories behind the songs of The Big Easy – from drug dealers to marching bands, this is the real New Orleans. Learn how the band saved their brilliant half-recorded album, Chained To The Chariot, from near extinction after The Storm. Listen to live in-studio performances of favorites from the album, "Big Parade" and "False Protection," as well as a special acoustic version of "Sing Like The Sun."

Rotary Downs was JamBase’s "New Favorite Band" of November 2006, now you can find out why! Check them out further at and
