Monday, we got invited to see St. Vincent at a intimate location in Santa Monica which we were very excited about. What excited us even more was the unexpected opener once we got there. Attendees to the Santa Monica show were greeted with the opportunity to test drive their revolutionary, new KCRW Music Mine iPad App! The KCRW Music Mine App gives users the ability to test out new music hand picked by the station's DJs and explore the archives with much more ease than one would imagine. After playing with it for a while, we couldn't wait to download it for ourselves and have others check it out because it's easier to show music fans how awesome it is than describing it in detail to them.
As of today, Wednesday, Sept. 14, the iPadApp is available as a FREE download to the public so you can test it out yourself! If you have an iPad, we fully recommend you get it and enjoy the music discovered by one of Los Angeles' (and the Nation's) most influencial radio stations, KCRW. Enjoy Scenestar iPad users! Check out the brief YouTube video by actor and playwright Mike O'Malley at the jump to see to believe:
