The MELVINS ruled last weekend at Slim's! Dale Crover did call the show from band practice somewhere in a L.A. bunker. Listen to it on my podcast of the show down below. Thanks alot Dale. Poison Idea and Antiseen tore it up as well at Thee Parkside. The weekend went well and its time for another.

Thursday night Mr. Nick Cave and his new project, GRINDERMAN will be playing at Great American Music Hall (I'll be attending that one) and Friday night at Slim's. Did you see them on Letterman this past Monday? David didn't even mention his name. Weird? Anyway, we here in San Francisco feel privileged because GRINDERMAN is only doing shows here, New York City and Chicago. He'll be back soon because he just finished up the new Bad Seeds album and also finished a script for a now in production movie called "Death of a Ladies' Man". Damn, he's a busy guy. Have you seen the movie, "The Proposition"? Totally sick and bloody! Speaking of Australia, go by THEE PARKSIDE for a Slick Rick Presents: Slick 46 (Melbourne, Australia), The Departed, Broken Oars and Stash Black. I wonder if Slick 46 likes Nick Cave? Uh, probably not. So, if you’re not going too see Mr. Cave and still want that Australia feel, go see SLICK 46 at Thee Parkside for some Punk Rock.

Saturday night is a double shot of shows. First, I'll be at Terrorbird One Year Anniversary Blow Out // Daly City Records Triple Ds Record Release Party! The party is being thrown at The Minna Gallery here in San Francisco. It’s been a year already for the music marketing company that specializes in non-commercial, college, satellite, select commercial specialty, and internet radio promotion that prides itself on a handpicked, amazing roster. Check out TERRORBIRD for more info. The anniversary also adds a release party for Daly City Records. Come on out and meet some of the coolest people in the biz. It’s open to the public so you don't have an excuse not to come.

Right after that party, I'll be heading back to Thee Parkside (yes I'm there all the time) to check out one bad ass band, MIDNITE SNAKE. The Pittsburgh trio includes one of the most under-rated drummers of our time, Paul Quattrone of Modey Lemon and guitar-God to some, Alexei Plotnicov. Midnite Snake gives a "shock & awe" psychedelic metal attack that makes Jimi Hendrix feel uncomfortable. It’s a FREE SHOW!! YES, FREE!! Come out and witness a band that will make sure you won't leave empty handed.

Make sure to check out the Dale Crover (fast forward the show to +11:45 minutes) interview and the rest of my radio show on my podcasts at THE THRASH ATTACK and THE NAKED ROB SHOW. I will not be on the air this week!

Thanks everybody for listening, sending music and supporting KSCU 103.3FM. Please, do not stop! Have your friends in other bands, labels, promo & marketing companies to send more music. As you know, I chart to CMJ every week, send my playlists out on a weekly basis, post everything on both my myspace profiles for the world too see and what's going with me, your bands, labels and the music scene here in the San Francisco Bay Area. Have a great weekend and ROCK OUT! CHEERS!
