Since reuniting in 2008, after disbanding in 2001, Toadies have released four albums, played hundreds of shows and festivals, released four signature craft beers and have been featured in an X-Men comic. Enough said.

#275: 311, NateWantsToBattle

By | EJC Show, News, Podcast | No Comments

REALLY, REALLY BIG SHOE…er, show. Eddie Jason & Chris welcome Nick Hexum, lead singer of rock/reggae legends, 311, and YouTube star Nathan Sharp (NateWantsToBattle).

311 are back with their epic 17-song opus, MOSAIC. The band recorded with producing legend John Feldmann, as well as Scotch Ralston (who produced the group’s iconic TransistorSoundsystem, and Stereolithic albums). There’s a lot of excitement around 311’s current single “Too Much To Think,” of which Hexum states, “Musically, it starts out with a signature 311 guitar riff…the song’s been described as an earworm. It sticks in your head.”

NateWantsToBattle has since become synonymous with the joyful consumption of a wide range of media: gaming, anime and, most of all–music. A singer, pianist, guitarist and songwriter, Sharp has written over 200 compositions and renditions that range from parodies of popular hits to English renditions of anime openings to music about video games to his very own rock originals.

Also, Jason and Chris have a battle royale to see who can make each other laugh, Chris goes to a Renaissance fair, the guys have a Harry Potter debate (sigh), Eddie confesses to being a sci-fi geek, Chris with the news.

By | EJC Show, News, Podcast | No Comments

Eddie Jason & Chris with a new episode featuring illusionist from CW TV’s Masters of Illusion, Michael Grandinetti, rapper Juiceboxxx, and Kendall Smith from Denver’s Underground Music Showcase.

Rapper Juiceboxxx might be out of his mind, but in all the best ways—he owns it and commits to this unstoppable onslaught of creative ideas and outbursts. Freaked Out American Loser is a punk rap blast that captures the anarchic, aggressive spirit of Juiceboxxx’s live show.

Michael Grandinetti’s career history includes performances on television series and specials. He was also the first illusionist ever invited to appear in the National Independence Day Parade in Washington DC, where he levitated a girl high above a float as it moved down Constitution Avenue as 250,000 people lined the streets. He will be appearing on the next season of CW TV’s Masters of Illusion, premiering on June 30th at 8 pm.

And, Kendall Smith, Director of The Underground Music Showcase (UMS), the largest indie music festival in the Rocky Mountain region.  This year’s UMS will feature hundreds of performances in 15 venues along a one-half mile section of Denver’s iconic South Broadway.

Next, Josh Scogin of ’68–an American rock duo consisting of Scogin (vox/guitar) and Michael McClellan (drums). With this project, Scogin (who is better known for his work with Norma Jean and The Chariot) is trying to cross even more boundaries than he did with his previous bands by binding genres all across the board including art punk, garage rock, post-hardcore, jazz, and more.

And finally, as part of idobi Warped Radio pre-interview coverage, Nate Hardy of Microwave. Atlanta four-piece Microwave balances frankness with a penchant for wit, allowing personal confessions to make a striking impact.
