What did you get at the record fair, and how much of your rent money did you spend on it? Hear these questions answered by many WFMU DJs this week, as those of us who attended the annual music-buy-fest engage in a week-long listening party. But also!
Diane Kamikaze talks with Bob Bert, the rock drummer who's been with Sonic Youth, Pussy Galore, Boss Hog, and now Five Dollar Priest (to name a few), and is also the founder of BBGun Zine. Bob stops by as part of Diane's weekly Peer Pressure! segment to give WFMU listeners a taste of his world, which is sure to be loud.
Ken and Andy return to the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater on Wednesday for another live performance of Seven Second Delay. This week's lineup of guests includes comedian Michael Showalter; Andy Borowitz of the Borowitz Report; and musical guest Rebecca Gates. There will also be an Occupy Wall Street drum circle and Radio Sight Gags! If you're in NYC, come to the theater before the performance to buy a ticket -- 307 West 26th Street, admission $5.
Later, Evan "Funk" Davies welcomes Canadian band The Bon. For all the great Canadian rock music Evan's show has brought in the past, The Bon will be the first-ever band from Canada to play a live set thereon! Their new album Static Electricity is out now on the Boppa Do Down label, and their lineup includes former members of the Leather Uppers and Tijuana Bibles.
For the 25 years it has existed, Norton Records has been supplying some of the rawest, noisiest, most bizarre, and best music to its eager public, reissuing and re-recording older rock/R&B artists while discovering a legacy of new ones. This week, to celebrate the label's anniversary, the Norton gang drops by Dave the Spazz's show! Expect lots of raucous 45s and torrid showbiz tales.
As always, there is more: Michael Shelley will interview Nile Rodgers of Chic, who's the author of the new book Le Freak: an Upside-Down Story of Family, Disco and Destiny. Multilingual Polish band Dikanda join Rob Weisberg on Transpacific Sound Paradise. And DJ Ital contributes an exclusive mix to the Scones Radio Podcast with Brad LaBonte and Momo!
