Vapour Trail Live: Slowdive

November 26, 2022

A few months back I took a poll and asked what your favorite Shoegaze album was. The winner was Slowdive. What better band to feature on Vapour Trail Live? Greg Peters, Meagan Masingill and Bret Miller play three hours of Slowdive, Mojave 3 and solo and outside groups as well as a few choice covers.


Vapour Trail Live is at 6pm PST on the second and fourth Fridays.
