I am unbelieveably stoked about this weeks show. Yes all my shows are my babies and I love them all but everyone has a kid that’s a little better than the others. The Baldwins have Alec. The Jacksons have Michael. The Lohan’s even have…Nevermind. Point is this show is great. Not only do we have a great band but an amazing contest.
So who and what is it? The band is Columbus, Ohio’s very own Two Cow Garage. These guys are amazingly rocking and (as it turns out) insanely nice. I would recomend them for anyone who likes country, rock or just not sucking. The prizes were donated lovingly by Virgil Dickerson, of Suburban Hom and Vinyl collective. And we gots three of them shits! First Prize: a Speaking in Cursive deluxe pack, which has Two Cow Garage’s latest album Speaking in Cursive on vinyl and CD, a pint glass and a t-shirt! Second place: a copy of Speaking in Cursive on CD and vinyl. Third place: Speaking in Cursive on CD. That’s a metric shit ton of prizes and you just have to enter to learn how to win!
I want to thank Two Cow Garage for taking the time to talk to us, Virgil for setting up the awesome prizes, and you for giving us a reason to do this. You can drop us a line at SoundSceneRevolution[at]gmail[dot]com, on MySpace or in the comments sections. And remember, tea parties are for bitches.
This week we have a very special show. We asked a lot of you to write in and you did (and not just to ask who Ryan from OWTH was talking about). One of the many suggestions we received was that we interview singer/songwriter Frank Turner. Well, we were gonna do it any way but it’s nice to know that people want to hear it.
We sat down with Frank over a lovely (and romantic) dinner at Pizz’a Chicago and then I got good and trashed and made an ass of myself at his show. Frank is a really nice guy and someone you’re going to be hearing a lot more from in the future. This is a good way to act ubber elitist and act like you heard of him first.
Enjoy the show and get stoked for next week, when we’ll be unleashing a new killer contest on your ass. In the meantime, feel free to contact us at SoundSceneRevolution[at]gmail[dot]com, on Myspace or here in our comments section.
We took a break…Sort of. It’s a good news band news situation. The bad news is I’m getting increasingly lazy. Driving 60 miles to interviews, editing and posting shows is just getting to be a lot of work. The good news is we’re planning to post at least 25 shows this year (hopefully more). Sorry if that’s not up to snuff but it’s just getting harder for find bands to get excited about interviewing and all that. We promise not to just up and quit. We’ll burn out in a smoldering ball of mediocrity before we go up in flames.
This week we talk with the fine folks of Off With Their Heads. This was during the Thorns of Life show in Berkeley and I couldn’t avoid throwing a few shots at Blake and Co. Don’t take it personally, I’m sure they’re all do damn busy being flooded by tons of fans to give a damn about what I have to say anyhow. So just enjoy the show. Oh, there are a few “beeps” on this show…They’re there for no good reason and you don’t need to know about it.
