I promised in my first ever blog post, The end of an era, that I would do a tribute to the Monthly Grease 'n Grind shows at Pat's Pub. Well, as we all know, the road to hell is paved with good intentions and a tribute episode dedicated to these hybrid car/rockabilly/psychobilly/garage rock shows was something that I meant to do but put off time and again until the idea fell behind the fridge within my mind. Until recently, when the prospect of the first Grease 'n Grind in 6 months reared its loud head and roared in my ear, shoving the fridge aside and breathing new life into the idea of a tribute show.
This week's episode is a two hour special all about these great events that have provided me with so much, both for my radio show and in my personal life, that I can safely say that my life has been changed forever due to the virtue of their existence.
So, it is with great pleasure that I can announce that this week's show is now online. Check out Psycho Radio's Grease 'n Grind special here. This is all in celebration of the fact that this upcoming Saturday night, Edmonton's Raygun Cowboys will be rocking the heck out of the bar beneath the Hotel Patricia and making the folks who live on Hastings St. wonder what all that old-timey electric racket is. Setting the stage will be Vancouver's The Zip Guns, Tsawassen's Duomatic System, and Victoria's The Stockers
You facebookers can check out the event for the show here with full details.
Myspace also has information on the event here.
Hope to see y'all there!
Oh, and in my haste to talk about Grease 'n Grinds, I forgot to mention another upcoming show on this week's episode. Victoria's Haddonfield will be playing at Bloody Betty and the Deadly Sins' "Fresh Meat Tryouts" going on Sunday night down at the Rickshaw Theatre. If you like psychobilly, semi-nude ladies and lots of blood, this should definitely be an event you won't want to miss. Once again, facebookers can get all the details here.
