On this week’s episode of SMI Radio, Naked Giants visit the Critical Sun Radio Studio to chat with host Greg Roth and perform live in-studio. The boys will be performing live at Timber! Outdoor Music Festival (July 16-18 in Carnation, Washington). Naked Giants will be taking the festival’s main stage at 4:40 p.m. on Saturday (7/17). Based on what we heard and saw in the studio, this is a band not to be missed!

Tickets for Timber! are available here.

In the second half of the show, Roth caught up with Rock and Roll Hall of Fame DJ and music curator, Marco Collins, during the  Fisherman’s Village Music Festival in May.  Collins gets personal as he talks about his movie, The Glamour and The Squalor, which made a very successful debut at SIFF to rave reviews.

Collins also shares his insights into the state of the music industry today, and his continued passion for discovering and curating great Northwest artists. He will be the official MC for Chinook Fest Summit 2015 this weekend, July 10- 12. Collins will be the host and DJ for the after-party on Saturday (7/11), right after headliner Allen Stone finishes his headlining set.

Tickets for Chinook Fest are available here.
