Chastity Belt Performs, Regrets Nothing

This story originally aired on November 26, 2016. 

Getting a tattoo can certainly be an occasion for regret. Getting a tattoo that has an intentional misspelling in it could potentially lead to more opportunity for regret. Naming your debut album after your intentionally misspelled tattoo pretty much sums up the "no regrets" attitude of the Seattle-based band Chastity Belt.

There certainly could have been moments for regret — from singing songs about "how a guy is hot" to playing in creepy little venues in the middle of nowhere, to making the decision to abandon their fields of study after graduation and go all-in to the uncertain and unstable music industry, but the band collectively agrees that they wouldn't change a thing.

Chastity Belt visited our performance studio to play a couple of songs, including one not available on any album, and to chat with Sound Effect producer Kevin Kniestedt.

Kevin Kniestedt is a journalist, host and producer who began his career at KNKX in 2003. Over his 17 years with the station, he worked as a full time jazz host, a news host and produced the weekly show Sound Effect. Kevin has conducted or produced hundreds of interviews, has won local and national awards for newscasts and commentary.
