    Brian Aubert and Nikki Monninger of Silversun Pickups recently played a private showcase at the Belly Up in San Diego for Slacker Radio listeners, also visiting Slacker's studios to program and host their own Artist Showcase station. How cool. Customized radio!

    Bringing along their quirky humor and eclectic music tastes, Silversun Pickups' showcase on Slacker Radio features music hand-selected by all the SSPU band members along with commentary by Brian and Nikki on their favorite tracks. Bands and artists on Silversun Pickups Showcase include Prince, My Bloody Valentine, Madonna, Arcade Fire, A Flock of Seagulls, Rod Stewart and Sparklehorse. What eclectic taste.

    When you tune in, you'll hear tidbits of commentary including:

    - The song that made Brian feel nostalgic the first time he heard it
    - The time Nikki "fanned out" on Doug Martsch of Built to Spill
    - The non-SSPU track that Brian sang backup vocals on

    The Silversun Pickups Showcase station can be found in Slacker Radio's "Artist Showcase" station category, which is here.

    Are you going to tune in?
