2 Assholes Talking Music #83

We'll be taking a few weeks off so we thought we'd just get back to basics for a night with just Jim and Ryan roasting the week in music news. We kick things off with a little public service announcement regarding our buddies in Mungion and their gear heist in Detroit. The band was recently robbed of all their gear, van, and trailer during a stop over in Michigan. Search "Mungion" on Go Fund Me if you'd like to donate to their cause and help them get back on their feet. Or you could catch...

Our special guest tonight is J.B. Bartlett from Chicago's patrons of groove, Waxworks!! J.B. was nice enough to stop by the lab to talk about everything from the upcoming album to Game of Thrones. No spoilers. It's hard to put a finger on Waxworks considering the rotating line-up of talented players. One night they might have a horn section and one night they might have someone on keys. The one constant that remains is their incredible sound be it Julian's thunderous percussions or Frank's...

We're joined by Chicago jam band Bodhicitta for some beers tonight!! Bodhicitta is the perfect example of what happens when four guys pick up their instruments and can all be on the same page. It's the in the pocket jams from a budding band that will hopefully be making noise on the scene for years to come. The guys stopped by the garage for a little bit to talk shop, do some beer tasting, cover the news, and play White Boy Theater. Turns out Ken is really good at it. If you're in and...

Annihilation Gravy

This is not for the faint of heart. You are about to enter the world of a madman. Annihilation Gravy is the soundtrack of a gun toting psycho that eliminate anything and anyone who gets in his way. Nobody is safe once the gun is cocked and the finger is on the trigger. His blood lust can't be controlled and can only be satisfied once the bullets start flying. Track after track of blistering death metal paves the way to total annihilation. Intro "Ascendance to the Summoning" -...

2 Assholes Talking Music #76: Bridge Interview

This week we're joined by Bridge for a quick jam session and a little interview afterwards. Bridge has been around for many years and has played many shows. A few line up changes later they're back to their core trio and have never sounded better. Like a fine wine, Bridge has aged well and if you take enough of it you'll be left in a blackout trying to find your car keys. The guys were nice enough to let us hang out at their jam spot for the night and record some tunes and screw around....

Today we were on location in the home of Bill Murray's "Groundhog Day" hanging out with Marc Esses & DJ New Vintage, one of the coolest local bands we've had the pleasure to cover in recent months. A DJ-drum duo that is taking the scene by storm and leaving empty bottles and tired dancing feet in their wake. This past weekend they took part in the Shamrocked Fest so we cracked a few beers and a couple of mics before the party started. Well, technically it never stopped from the night...

Considering the blood alcohol level in the room last Friday night we manage to have a pretty decent show. We've been having lots of bands so far this year but we decided to get back to normal and roast the week in music news and drink beer. Lots of it. Chris from the Stone Rollin' Devils stops by to talk about the Super Bowl halftime show, Arnold Shwarzeneger beefing with Nickelback on Twitter, the science of music, an onstage enema goes wrong, Australia's favorite song to have sex to,...

2 Assholes Talking Music #67

This is our official last show of 2016. In years past we've tried and failed to do a full on wrap up of the year in music so this year we decided to just kind of half ass it.
