Tuesday night musings...

Watching American Psycho. In my opinion, Bale's FINEST role. If only he had played Batman like "Patrick Bateman"....would have been a far more interesting move. Patrick Bateman would NOT have had a movie stolen from him by the likes of Ledger's The Joker, that's for sure. I think Huey Lewis would have done wonders for the soundtrack. Ah well. Let's move on.
I've got some great music coming up on the shows this week. (http://www.HoundstoothRadio.com)
I am lucky enough to be debuting brand new music from one of my all time favorite SoCal punk bands Big Drill Car. They reunited last year for some shows after many many years off...I was lucky enough to see one of the first shows back in Huntington Beach. The reunion was so successful they ended up playing some of the Warped Tour dates and decided that maybe a rareties & unreleased cd was worth thinking about. After getting together to see if they might want to write a new tune for the compilation, they ended up with FIVE!!! Signed, sealed, and soon to be delivered to an on-line venue near YOU!
The CD will be called "A Never Ending Endeavor" and will be sold thru various online outlets including at their lives shows playing with All! on their mini House of Blues tour thru So Cal this July.
The single is called "Eye A Door" and I will be playing it this Friday on my show.
Also on the bill this week? New music from The Reigning Monarchs. Excellent surf/ska fare with a song title that kept me in stiches, "Short Pants for Fatty". I mean, come ON...what's not to love?
So just a little sneaky peek of what's coming up in the next few days.(1pm Pacific/4pm Eastern)
As always, thanks for taking the time to read my blog, listen to my show, and support Houndstooth Radio. It's greatly appreciated.

Happy Father's Day! and some updates...

Hey all, sorry I've been so silent on the Blog front. Moving has pretty much taken the wind out of my sails. Came down with a nasty head cold just as we finished moving all of our belongings to the lovely Studio City. Should be right as rain in a day or two. Awesome things cooking over at Houndstooth Radio...including some new music from one of my most beloved bands Big Drill Car! They are doing a House of Blues mini-tour in July with All! and rehearsals went so well that new music was written, recorded, mixed...and is ready for the world! I have heard the first single "Eye A Door" and it is STELLAR!! More info on the song and their upcoming cd release on Houndstooth VERY VERY soon!!!
Happy Father's Day to all the cool dads out there! Including my dad Mike and my husband Trevor...the two best dads I know!!
