K.Flay kicks off SOL REPUBLIC and DeliRadio Concert Series
Transmissions-LIVE, a live music and interview show based in the San Francisco Bay Area, is proud to announce our second season and the next show will be filmed on November 6th at The Brick & Mortar Music Hall in San Francisco, featuring the artist K.Flay. for a live performance and interview, with special guest Trishes.
This is a FREE show presented by SOL Republic, Brick & Mortar Music Hall and DeliRadio.
An artist who quickly evolved from parody to indie, Chicago-born rapper K. Flay first grabbed the mike while a student at Stanford University in California. It was the frivolous topics and misogynistic lyrics she saw in mainstream rap that first drove her to record a parody of the genre, but she was surprised by both her talent and how much she enjoyed recording. She spent the rest of the year recording and writing, spent her sophomore year performing, and in her junior year, she dropped her debut album, 2004’s Suburban Rap Queen. Five years later, her second effort, Mashed Potatoes, appeared with backing tracks that were more electro and indie-oriented, a style that remained in place for 2011’s I Stopped Caring in ’96. In 2013, she made her major-label debut with the What If It Is EP on RCA.
The crowdfunded and self released album, “Life As A Dog” debuted at No. 14 on the Billboard rap charts, as well as hitting No. 2 in the Heatseekers category.
Transmissions-LIVE is partnering with DeliRadio for ongoing episodes featuring musical acts in the San Francisco Bay Area. The Transmissions-LIVE concert series will be an ongoing showcase of new and exciting acts at the following venues of The Brick & Mortar Music Hall, The New Parish and Leo’s Music Club.

More about DeliRadio:
Launched in 2011, DeliRadio is a 21st century rethink of what “local radio” means. Rather than play the same handful of mainstream acts, DeliRadio starts by letting you select a nearby club or festival, or simply your general vicinity. It then plays you only artists with upcoming shows, filtered by genres you select, as a station. Stations can be freely shared with anyone. And when you follow an artist, DeliRadio will automatically alert you when said artist posts new music or adds nearby concert dates in the future.
