Echo and the Bunnymen and the Orioles?

Share this post

I went to an Orioles game last night. It’s been a while since I’ve seen the O’s play and some things have changed- like the music. It was weird and cool to hear Echo and the Bunnymen’s “Do it Clean” in between innings.

I saw the band in the states in 2008 play “Ocean Rain” in its entirety with an orchestra at Radio City, and it was one of the best shows I’ve ever seen. If you’re up for a road trip, they’re repeating that premise by playing “Crocodiles” and “Heaven Up Here” this December in the UK.

Pat Ferrise grew up loving ”the punk rock” and “new wave.” His years at one of the nation’s top college radio stations ultimately led him to a 15-year run as music director of alternative music icon WHFS Washington/Baltimore. Rolling Stone magazine named him of the most influential programmers of the 90s. He’s recorded two albums under the moniker Trampoline for the now defunct SpinArt label. He lives in Baltimore and takes no credit for writing this bio.
