KEXP Presents: Ty SegallKEXP

Could there be a better symbol of KEXP's rebirth in our new home than the "Baby Big Man" that is Ty Segall? Donning a creepy torn-up baby mask and wielding an adult-sized umbilical chord, the station favorite christened a new performance space with its first-ever live broadcast session.

To capture the songs from his latest album, Emotional Mugger, Segall was joined by The Muggers, a who's-who of today's psych and garage rockers, including Kyle Thomas of King Tuff, Mikal Cronin, Wand's Cory Hanson and Evan Burrows, and Emmet Kelly of The Cairo Gang. Raw and raucous, the set spilled over with zany passion, as Segall dribbled, drooled, squealed, bawled and threw lyrical tantrums over blistering guitars, squelching keys and pummeling rhythms. Big baby, bad baby, weird baby — if Ty Segall is the first baby born at KEXP's new studio, we can only marvel at the generations to come.
