The Drunk Rock Show Back when I was a fifteen-year-old music entrepreneur, a member of one of the bands I'd booked told me he didn't want to be famous, just known locally. He wanted to be able to play shows, and then go get a drink with the people who were in the crowd supporting him. He wanted them to know him for more than just his music, and that is the vibe I intend to create on this show.

I sat down with Ryan and Brandon from Place Blame to talk about upcoming shows, Skatopia, new music, and Tony Hawk soundtracks. We read mumble rap lyrics, which is always fun. I learned how to scream (kind of). There are plenty of other spontaneous topics that pop up throughout. It was a good time.Music from this episode:Place Blame: Designed for BetrayalGator Shakes: Traitor to the Cause (getting you ready for that new shit)

Learn about the concept and mission of the event, learn about the people behind it and their ongoing projects, and crack open something from Southern Tier (we sure did).

the Outlaw Hippie Showdown at Mr. Smalls
by Neil Donnelly on 16 Jul 2019 at 12:00 am
I was invited to the Outlaw Hippie Showdown at Mr. Smalls to do some interviews and stuff. I'd never done anything like this, and it was definitely a learning experience. Relegated to the dungeon, I did my best. The result is a fucked up mix of interviews, backstage conversations, and live music clips from the likes of Garage Space, Bad Friend Ben, Playgrounds, and Dayshift. I definitely probably screwed up the editing on this, but I have a headache man.
Everyone Hates Everything
by Neil Donnelly/Paul Lowe Jr. on 19 Jun 2019 at 10:00 am
I sat down with Paul from Everyone Hates Everything to discuss an upcoming local show, tour plans for the summer, their recent signing to Profane Records and ensuing album, and the importance of mental health awareness. The interview is sandwiched between two EHE songs, "Into the Abyss," and "Desolate is a Dark Place."
The Arkadian (Boston)
by Neil Donnelly/Jonathan O'Neal on 12 Jun 2019 at 11:00 am
In this episode, I talked with Jonathan O'Neal of the Arkadian about their tour, and particularly their upcoming show at Howler's on June 17th, the different types of venues where they play, wizard rock, video games, Greece, and their influences in terms of both video games and music. There's a little bit of stuff about serial murderers, because whatever. I think by now we all know I write horror and think serial killers are interesting. Find them on Facebook, BandCamp, and on Spotify.For a Drunk Rock Show t-shirt, send me $20 (includes shipping) on PayPal and your address.

I visited the guys from Neostem to talk about their past and upcoming shows, their view on the music scene, and their album Mr. NoUpside. We also talked about stinkbugs, the saving of the guinea pigs, and other strange things. For the first (and hopefully not the last) time, I recorded during a practice session which will be heard throughout the episode. For more information about the band, check them out on the Facebook, Spotify, and BandCamp.

I interviewed Brian Howe to discuss both of his musical endeavors, Greywalker and Sikes and the New Violence. Apart from conversations concerning upcoming and past shows, the reception of Greywalker's most recent album and the thematic elements/lyrical strategy involved in each project, we talked about beer and Coheed and Cambria (for some reason).Find Greywalker on their website, Facebook, Instagram, and BandCamp.Find Sikes and the New Violence on Facebook, Instagram, BandCamp, and their website.Lastly, I urge you to buy a fucking t-shirt (in the nicest way imaginable).
