The KXT Local Show: Dali Voodoo, LoveHeist, Bad Lives


This week on the KXT Local Show, we heard new music from Abby Cole, Madeline Elise, and Matthew McNeal. We also had Local Show debuts by Dallas band Bad Lives, and Fort Worth hip hop duo 808 Saints, checked out the song “Daydream” by pop artist Dali Voodoo, and revisited “Ready to Go” by Dallas band LoveHeist.

Check out the full playlist below this week’s show highlights!

(Warning: the songs below may contain explicit language.)


Dali Voodoo 

Dali Voodoo made his Local Show debut a few weeks ago with the song “Country Girl”, his collaboration with rapper Tay Money.  This week, Dali Voodoo is back with his song “Daydream” and a super fun video that goes with it!


Bad Lives 

Bad Lives is a trio from Dallas that strives to meld the energy of modern indie with classic alternative sounds. Check out their song “The Queen.”



We caught up with LoveHeist back in February to talk about how the band came to be and about their single”Ready to Go.” The song is a reminder not to give up when things get difficult.
