Lily Allen (Episode #803H)

KQED Plus: Sun, Sep 14, 2014 -- 11:00 PM

London-born pop artist Lily Allen was one of the first musicians to launch her career through social media. After dropping out of school at the age of 15, she signed with Regal Recordings and, in 2005, began posting demos on her MySpace page. Her cheeky lyrics and mash-up of reggae, hip-hop, and ska garnered massive fan and media attention. Allen's debut album, Alright, Still, was released in 2006, led by its single, "Smile." The album received a Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Music Album and was named one of the best albums of the year by Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, and Entertainment Weekly. In 2009, Allen released her second album, the more electropop-inspired It's Not Me, It's You. The album debuted at the top of the charts in the UK, Canada, and Australia, and in the Top 5 in the US. After two years of intense touring, Allen went on hiatus to focus on starting a family. She returned in 2014 with the release of her third album, Sheezus. The album has produced two top 10 hits in the UK, "Hard Out Here" and "Air Balloon." Allen performs at the Manhattan Center's Grand Ballroom.

Rodrigo Y Gabriela (Episode #802H)

KQED Plus: Sun, Sep 7, 2014 -- 11:00 PM

On the eve of the release of their new album, 9 Dead Alive, the incomparable Mexican guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela performed at Upper Manhattan's Hispanic Society of America. The two virtuoso musicians played a dazzling 12-song set in the century-old museum's Sorolla Gallery, surrounded by the 14 paintings that make up Joaquin Sorolla y Bastida's masterwork "Vision of Spain," a celebration of the country's diverse customs. It was a breathtaking setting for Rodrigo y Gabriela's unique fusion of musical genres, a mix of melodic beauty and percussive fury which drove the 300 invited guests into clapping, stomping glee.
