CITAY Perform A New, Improved, LIVE Session For TheBayBridged

CITAY were recently featured on the TheBayBridged.com’s new feature, New, Improved, LIVE. The band performed cuts from their self-titled debut and their 2008 Dead Oceans longplayer, Little Kingdon. But the real prize here is the band’s cover of “Set Me Free,” from Sweet’s 1974 album Sweet Fanny Adams. Check out cuts from the session HERE.

CITAY Featured In Performance, Interview With KEXP

Last week, the good people at Seattle’s KEXP took a San Francisco field trip for three days of interviews and performances from the Bay Area’s finest artists. Dead Oceans’ classic rock behemoth Citay was honored to be featured on the program, where they burned through epic cuts from the band’s 2007 release Little Kingdom, such as “Eye on the Dollar.” The band left host Cheryl Waters to say she was “totally blissing out” during the performance.

In KEXP’s Live From San Francisco blog, the station also had these kind words to share about Citay: “Over the course of two full-length records, those inspirations and attention to detailed, 5+ minute songwriting have led to a profound dynamism with songs often spanning the dour and euphoric before reaching their grand conclusions. Following the late 2007 release of Little Kingdom on Dead Oceans, Citay has remained relevant by taking their dynamic sound to the stage, earning them a recent Goldie Award, a yearly prize offered by the San Francisco Bay Guardian that recognizes exceptional performance across the arts.”
