Bo Bo Jo Jamaican Albino Podcast - Episode #3 - "Dream Bands"

podcatfeed.jpg

Episode 3 of the Bo Bo Jo Jamaican Albino Podcast find Andrew and I assembling our "Dream Band" one musician at a time. It's the kind of debate where points are made vehemently and argued without a single shred of rational evidence. The kind of hypothetical discussion that could end friendships under the right circumstances. Normally these kind of conversations take place in bars, late at night, and end with someone storming out of the room, but the friendly confines of the Podcast seem to be an adequate alternative arena for it to take place. So check out both of our "Dream Bands", where we play a song from each musician, and then play a crazy amalgamation of what the band might sound like if they came together in the studio.

Our Dream Bands consist of the following musicians:


Fred Thomas
Django Reinhardt
Michael Shrieve
Bill Stevenson
Freddie Mercury
Phil Lesh
Jeff Mangum
Robert Johnson
Marc Ribot
Bob Marley

Who picked who? What will these musical superstars assembled sound like? Who the hell is Michael Shrieve? Tune into the Bo Bo Jo Jamaican Albino Podcast to find out!

A fortunate afterthought...

We have received confirmation that Joe Callahan's shades were not injured in the unpleasantness during Tool's Set at the Street Scene.

Like a storm rolling away, the clouds of cover and tribute bands have parted leaving only the bright, bright sunshine of some of San Diego's best local bands. Fifty On Their Heels and Grand Ole Party play Wednesday night, fresh off a shared gig a week or so back at the Sports Club. Canes bartenders likely have little going for them in the way of personality, but their is NO FEASIBLE WAY on Earth that they could be more obnoxious or unpleasent than the bartender at the Sports Club. Imagine a morbidly obese Zippy The Pinhead, shrieking your drink order obnoxiously at top volume. Seriously, this guy could bartend in the depths of hell, hands down.

But the music is great. Fifty On Their Heels rocks the house with an energetic performance from singer Junior Metro the likes of which we haven't seen since Iggy Pop was rolling around on broken glass for some reason back in the day, and Grand Ole Party, once you get by the Britney/NSynch style customer service agent microphones deliver sleazily rockin' set. At the Sports Club I observed that the guitarist of Grand Ole Party is definitely the bands secret weapon. The singer may get all the press for doing what she does best while playing the drums, but the guitarist has a vast array of licks stored away for use at a proper time.

Both bands draw crowds, I was personally shocked to see how many people came out to see Grand Ole Party last time, and after extensive press coverage written by myself in such widely read periodicals such as the Reader, that's sure to increase on Wednesday. Fortunately, I've got yer tickets right here, for absolutely zero dollars. So if you want to go check out the bands on Wednesday night at Canes, email me at conorATsandiegoserenade.com. I highly recommend both, and am happy that my recommendation doesn't have to have any costs incurred to you, the reader, because that takes me off the hook for even the minimal amount that I was on the hook. Booya.

New Bo Bo Jo Jamaican Albino Podcast hopefully coming tomorrow night.
