Chicano Batman performing “Freedom Is Free”

Recorded live on KEXP.

May 9, 2017

While everyone else in Seattle was decked out in rain boots and all-weather jackets, the dapper Los Angeles quartet Chicano Batman performed at the KEXP studio dressed to the nines, bringing a bit of psychedelic sunshine to one of the wettest Seattle winters in recent memory. The band’s ebullient tropicalia- and psychedelia-tinged rock has only grown sharper on their latest album, Freedom is Free, which shines through in this contagiously bright session with Troy Nelson. See the performance recorded live on February 23, 2017.

Host: Troy Nelson
Audio Engineer: Jose Cruz & Kevin Suggs
Cameras: Jim Beckmann, Scott Holpainen & Kendall Rock
Editor: Justin Wilmore
