This Week: Microscopic Giant

Microscopic Giant is a quirky Bellingham band with three members who, at least, look like they’ve been around the block a time or two. The goup released an EP last November and sent me a copy a couple of months ago. I can’t find a lot of info on the band and only know what I’ve heard, so we’ll meet the guys and find out more about the band on this week’s edition of Locals Only.

December 22nd – Dino Dinicolo

Dino Dinicolo has made several appearances on the program in the past. His first appearance was with a good Vancouver band called Supertonic. After the demise of the band, Dino came up with an unusual musical decision. He decided to go on the road with just his bass, his voice and a percussive device called a stompbox. The stompbox has been replaced with a more contemporary version, but Dino remains solo. It seems to be working out. We’ll find how Dino is doing and listen to cuts from his latest CD on this week’s edition of Locals Only.
