Show Notes

Folk-rockers[ Kakagi](http://www.kakagimusic.com/) (well, half of them, anyway) sit down for a conversation about fitting in with the local scene, touring anxiety, their fantastic new EP, and much more! This was an episode long in the making. We tried to set up an interview when their previous EP came out, but (for reasons that are lost to time) it fell through. I'm glad I was finally able to link up with them. Thanks to everyone who has supported the podcast thus far. Thanks to supporters like you, we can keep churning out interviews twice a week! If you like the show, please head down to [patreon.com/witchpolice](http://www.patreon.com/witchpolice), and for as little as $1 a month (less than 12 cents an episode), you can help keep the lights on! This episode is brought to you by our friends at the Park Theatre, who have a whole calendar of great upcoming shows. Check it out on their website for more details! ...and speaking of the Park, be sure to check out the inaugural [Manitoba Podcast Festival](http://www.facebook.com/events/2188824571388548/), happening there Sept. 30!

WR252: Odd Outfit

This week's guests are experimental psychedelic jazz-fusion instrumental (that's already a mouthful, plus they throw 'shoegaze' in there somewhere) group [Odd Outfit](https://oddoutfit.bandcamp.com/releases). We talk about their excellent debut release, Up/Down (Aug. 2017), their experiences as a jazz-rooted band with little connection to the local jazz scene, and much more! This episode is brought to you by the first-annual Winnipeg Weekender; two nights of live music, DJs and comedy presented by (among others) our friend, UMFM DJ Aaron "The Invisible Man" Young. The show happens Oct. 21 and 22 at the Pyramid Cabaret and the Yellow Dog Tavern. ...

WR413: Aaron Bacon

Bassist, music teacher, and YouTuber Aaron Bacon isn't new to the podcast – he's been on Witchpolice Radio before as a member of both [Dizzy Mystics](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/35c82ec809bf42/) and [Aphelion](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/368a3bad6675d2/) – but we've never talked about this project before. [Bacon's Bass Place](http://www.facebook.com/BaconsBassPlace/) is Aaron's all-purpose online presence for teaching bass techniques, vlogging, podcasting, and a lot more. We have a conversation in the food court about the project, where it's going, how it got started, and a lot more. Stay tuned to the end of the episode to [hear an example](http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMUpDt7KCnk) of one of Aaron's bass lessons! This episode is brought to you by our friends at [The Park Theatre](http://myparktheatre.com/), who are presenting this year’s Manitoba Podcast Festival on Sept. 29! You’ll also want to check out a [show Sept. 6 at the Cavern](http://www.facebook.com/events/405665890061421/), featuring a trio of past guests on the podcast – [Joe Curtis Band](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/368d6cb7dccec0/), [Paige Drobot](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/37461d930714ac/), and [Heartsleeve](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/3790b3f76eba1e/). It’s hard to think of a better or more eclectic lineup. ...and go out and grab the debut record by new local metal fusion band [Book of Ghosts](http://www.instagram.com/bookofghostsofficial), which dropped everywhere Aug. 27! ...
