Not much going on this weekend for me. Just doing a little more record shopping, watch some flicks and go bike riding but, next week is a total different thing.


Next Tuesday, August 12th at 4PM on my show at Pirate Cat Radio/Cafe, MUMMYSHOTS from San Francisco will be performing live in the café. MUMMYSHOTS is mostly a four-piece mostly-acoustic band from San Francisco and former members of Hammerdown Turpentine. The band uses a wide variety of instruments such as: xylophone, piano, violin, and accordion. You can listen online or come on down to the café at 21st Street @ Florida in the lovely Mission District of San Francisco for some down-home Folk music. See you there!


Right after Mummyshots at 5PM, my interview series continues with poster artists for the BURM MY EYES III poster show on Saturday, August 16th at Bottom of the Hill from 3PM to 8PM and yours truly will be spinning records. I’m privileged to have a rare interview with the sick, twisted and remarkably talented artist, Alan Forbes. If you don’t know who he is or seen his work, you’ve been living on an island all your life. He developed the signature icon of The Black Crowes , as well as posters, symbols and album artworks for many other bands, including Queens of the Stone Age, The Melvins, High On Fire,The Offspring,White Stripes, AFI and The Misfits. The rest of the line-up for the poster art show includes: John Seabury, Alan Forbes, Alan Hynes, Lil Tuffy, David D'Andrea, Wendy Wright, Stainboy, Paul Imagine, Steve Walters (Screwball Press) and the whole show was put together by Justin “SwampViking”McNeal. It should be a great time so, bring your wallet and checkbook so you can get yourself some cool poster art. See you then.

I have a new radio show every Tuesday 4to6PM (PST) at Pirate Cat Radio 87.9 San Francisco/Los Angeles and 104.8FM in Berlin, Germany. You can also check it out online and listen at PIRATE CAT RADIO . Also, you can check out my podcast and download it if you like. Go ahead, you know you want to. HA! The station is also attached to the PCR Café. If you're in San Francisco, come on down to 21st Street @Florida for a coffee, ice tea, Italian soda, free internet or just hangout. Also, I'm taking band submissions right now to play live in the studio. ONLY acoustic sets and no amps whatsoever! Let's say like a living room feel to it (minus the bongs, coke mirrors, porn and booze). C'mon, it's a neighborhood café. Anyway, get a hold of me for submissions.

Also, THE THRASH ATTACK is still every Thursday 4to7PM (PST) at KSCU 103.3FM or 103.3FM in the South Bay. Spread the word and tell all your friends in bands, labels, promoters, bookers or anybody else that deals with bands. Thanks for everything and have a nice weekend and be cool. Cheers!
