KEXP has been in Portland, Oregon this week at MusicFestNW, and they are going to be broadcasting a live session from the Doug Fir with The Tallest Man on Earth today, Sept 10th at 2:30 PM Pacific Standard Time. If you live in Portland and you’re reading this, the show at the Doug Fir is free and open to the public! It’s first-come, first-served, though, so you might want to get there early.

His official MusicFestNW performance is tonight at the Doug Fir at 11:55pm on the Toyota Antics and KEXP stage. Perhaps he will play tunes from his new, surprise EP???

I leave you now with this video I found of Kristian playing “King of Spain” in Germany a couple of weeks ago. What the hell, this dude is a star and never ceases to amaze me.
