It’s finally time to tackle our first EP, an original work by Walk off the Earth called R.E.V.O., which we discuss alongside a selection of self-released covers. This rare combo-review comes courtesy of our guest, the enterprising thespian known as “Joe Rude” of The Kings of Karaoke and of The Society of American Fight Directors. He tells us a bit about Karaoke as a business, and also as a haven for quelling inhibitions, one show at a time. Stick around at the end for a treat performance!
Welcome, welcome… or should I say, “thank ya, thank ya,” because this week we’re traveling to the bygone days of Lawrence Welk with his 1960s compilation album, The Champagne Music of Lawrence Welk. This review is brought to us by today’s guest, the lovely Hazel Honeysuckle, a talented NYC-based burlesque performer who enlightens us with her unique perspective on music as an on-stage tool, as well as a brief history of burlesque and its resurgence as a popular performance art.
Tonight we’re joined by returning guests, the Wall Street Playaz, who come to us with a special choice album suggestion for this week’s review: Hide the Kitchen Knives by The Paper Chase. Then we get some insight into WSP’s latest work, as well as a sneak preview track from their upcoming LP, so stick around!
This week we are without Jon, but we do have our featured guest: Nelson Lugo, of Epic Win Burlesque, The Sharkbite Sideshow, and The Epic Piecast. We also review Until the Quiet Comes, the latest from Flying Lotus, as well as talk with Nelson about all things Nelson.
Billie Joe Armstrong’s recent hospitalization, we review Hoobastank’s latest album, Fight or Flight, and talk with our guest Tyler Parker about his Shadow Play Project and his singing talent.

This week we talk about the world’s largest drumsticks, a review of Cage The Elephant’s latest, Thank You, Happy Birthday, and then get up close and personal with the Wall Street Playaz. Enjoy!
I had the wonderful pleasure of sitting down with Schäffer the Darklord recently for an interview. He is truly a sweet, nerdy, and down to earth guy and we got to talk for quite some time about many different things and I discover as a fan myself that we had a lot in common from music to video game to movies and more. I am very thankful that he took the time out to meet with me and talk. I hope you guys enjoy reading this at much as I did doing it. Enjoy!
I recently had the wonderful pleasure of interviewing Marian Call. I first discovered her awesome music when I saw w00tstock back on October 29th, 2010. She was super nice and I had a blast talking to her!
I had the pleasure of speaking with the lovely, talented, and and super-sweet Kelly-O from The Dollyrots. We chatted about everything from their latest album; which drops this August, to cooking vegetables! Here it is! I hope you enjoy it!
