B-Sides On-Air is broadcast on KBCW-44/cable 12 in the San Francisco Bay Area every Saturday night after SNL at 1a. We know it may be a time when either making out or passing out. So, make sure to DVR us every week and check out some highlights from the show here! This past weekend, The Chainsmokers joined us for a chat with B-Sides host, Pete Mar. You may have heard their breakout viral hit, “SELFIE”. The duo of Alex Pall and Drew Taggart talked about the origins of creating the track, how they got David Hasselhoff to appear in the video and what their connection with James Franco is. We Are The In Crowd recently performed at Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco and performed “Best Thing (That Never Happened” for us. Jordan from the band took a moment to talk about the band’s new album, “Weird Kids”, what the band has been up to the last three years and more! Big Data at the top spot on our top 10 countdown for the second week; check out the list and the vids on this page on the right side!
The guys from The Chainsmokers have making music together since 2012 and it didn’t take them long to get noticed. The track “SELFIE” is something that everyone can relate to, even the President of the United States, Barack Obama (remember what happened during the memorial for Nelson Mandela?). The duo comprised of Alex Pall and Drew Taggart have made all the right connections starting with Steve Aoki of Dim Mak Records and are working hard to leverage their new-found success to take things to the next level.

After a three year hiatus, We Are The In Crowd have released their newest album, “Weird Kids”. Although it was quite some time between recorded material, the band was quite busy with touring, having performed at the Leeds and Reading festivals. Finally hitting the studio, We Are The In Crowd completed the new material within 22 days and are back on the road. The band will perform at the Warped Tour 2014 after their own headlining tour that they’re currently on. Check out We Are The In Crowd as they perform “The Best Thing (That Never Happened)” for B-Sides live from Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco!
