That’s right people! Boxxx is back on the road. It’s a mini-tour! What the fuck do you want me to say? Just trying to keep moving forward despite all the darkness and all the confusion and all the self-hate. To play rock and roll music on the road for strangers, because sometimes that feels like the only thing that makes sense in this fucked up world.
I’m playing with some great bands and I’ll be in a rental mini-van. Got THE THUNDER ZONE BAND behind me so I’m not alone. We are not alone. Fuck it. Enter The Thunder Zone.
I hope to see you at the rock and roll gig.
APRIL 29-DETROIT ST. ANDREW’S HALL (WITH ANDREW WK)
APRIL 30-TORONTO DOUBLE DOUBLE LAND (WITH MAN MADE HILL AND CERAMIC TL)
MAY 1-NYC TRANS PECOS (WITH EXTREME ANIMALS, HARIBO, SEF, AND SEPTIC SUNDAY SOUNDSYSTEM)
Another month… Another THUNDER ZONE KICKBACK. The kickback stays alive and fights on for another edition of chilled out insanity at everyone’s favorite Bushwick bar HAPPY FUN HIDEAWAY. Tonight we are kicking it Spring Break style with special guest Alex Drewchin aka EARTHEATER aka KING CONCUBINE aka member of unstoppable force GUARDIAN ALIEN… Doing a DJ set. I don’t know what she’s gonna play but I bet it’s gonna be sick! Watch an Eartheater video below.
And, as always custom Thunder Zone visuals. And, as always: ENERGY DRINK GIVEAWAYS. And, as always: stay alive, never surrender, fuck all the bullshit. Rock and roll will save your life. There’s no turning back.
I’m really siked to present to you the newest in a long line of freaked out JUICEBOXXX music videos… “Like A Maniac,” shot on 16mm film at a house in Jersey and directed by my friend Guy Kozak. It is off of a new JB record called “Heartland 99″ that comes out June 9th on my own label THUNDER ZONE in collaboration with the great label VINYL INTERNATIONAL. I can’t wait for you to hear it. I can’t wait to make more records and just keep doing this for whatever fucked up reason.
In this life, it’s hard to know what the fuck to do. I’ve been running for a long time and I see no end in sight. Stay positive and stay alive. Get out of the darkness and try again. Eat some shitty fast food if you need to. Fuck it, ENTER THE THUNDER ZONE.
This Friday in New York City, I will be doing a real boy DJ SET at the esteemed BROKE CITY party alongside some friends and real boy djs… I’m talking TEENGIRL FANTASY and DUBBEL DUTCH! Plus the Broke City residents, no doubt. Should be a good night of underground EDM in colonial Bushwick! Come out to the rave. FACEBOOK EVENT.
Also, I got a new video “dropping” on Thursday that I’m really excited about. Fuck it, check out a screenshot below and stay so deep in the THUNDER ZONE that you have no choice but to keep going and going and going until you find that light in the night. Respect is due to all the American musicians who blazed this fucked up path. Keep running.
The final chapter in the LIL UGLY MANE/THUNDER ZONE saga is here and it is sick. Really sick. Super “inside baseball” goofy graphix design from Brian Blomerth, if you know you know. If you don’t? Just enjoy it for what it: an amazing graphic that serves as an icon for all you ragers out there. Wear it loud and proud and represent for UGLY MANE and THUNDER ZONE as you fuckin’ pound the pavement and go on a Slurpee run at your local 7-11. Freaked out American culture for all the losers and weirdos… This is Thunder Zone. No rules, no limits. No fear.
This Wednesday it is going down once again at HAPPYFUN HIDEAWAY in NEW YORK CITY. I’m talking about THE THUNDER ZONE KICKBACK and my man, if there is one goddamn thing I have learned, it is that you can’t kill the kickback… At least just not yet.
This month our guests are WFMU legend NAT ROE and a late night dancehall set from D. GOOKIN. Plus me playing rap music and THUNDER ZONE visuals and maybe even some fucking energy drinks if the shipment comes in on time but who really knows in this life? No one. No one knows. That is why this whole thing is exciting! Because no one really knows. Rock and Roll will never die.
Check it out my dude, it’s the THUNDER ZONE KICKBACK!!!
In the spirit of records like “Alien Lanes” by Guided By Voices, “Stereopathetic Soulmanure” by Beck, and anything by Lil B… In the spirit of trying to stay positive even though you don’t know what the fuck you are doing with your goddamn life… In the spirit of AMERICAN MUSIC and THE THUNDER ZONE…
Here it is… “Highway To The Heartland,” the new JUICEBOXXX mixtape. 28 tracks of blown out anything goes dirtstyle insanity about life and rock and roll. Out now on Thunder Zone. Featuring collaborations with Dan Deacon, D/P/I, Vice Cooler, Sweet Valley, Issue, DJ Douggpound, Shawn Kemp, Fat Tony, Schwarz, White Rainbow, DJ Lucas, 333 Boyz, TV Girl, and fuck? Am I missing anyone?
Either way, like I said, DOWNLOAD IT RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW and stay positive, keep fighting for your dreams even if you have no clue what you are doing. Listen to some songs from the tape below. My new “proper LP” HEARTLAND 99 comes out in June and a book about me THE NEXT NEXT LEVEL by Leon Neyfakh comes out in July.
Damn, we got a sick kickback tonight! I’m really excited that the Septic Sunday Sound System AKA Far Rockaway legends YELLOW TEARS are going to be “in the mix,” doing a group DJ set and representing SEPTIC WORLD INTERNATIONAL. These guys are the shit! Check out a classic Yellow Tears cable access video below to get siked.
Plus we got a few energy drinks left so fuck it, let’s give those things away too. All of this and more (YELLOW TEARS/SEPTIC WORLD INTERNATIONAL/THUNDER ZONE/JUICEBOXXX VIDEOS) at Happy Fun Hideaway in New York City. Kick back, my dude. The saga never ends. What the fuck am I doing with my life? Welcome to the THUNDER ZONE.
New BOXXX for 2K15, from the upcoming 28 track mixtape “Highway To The Heartland,” coming out March 3rd on THUNDER ZONE. I want you to know that I’m not fucking around when I say that this new mixtape is loose and wild and inspired by ALIEN LANES and ILL COMMUNICATION in equal doses. Pretty much the opposite of the airtight anthems of my upcoming “proper LP” HEARTLAND 99, but an equally important piece in the fucked up American pop music saga that is JUICEBOXXX.
Oh yeah, and this track was produced by legendary WHITE RAINBOW, so you know it’s gonna be slamming. Stream it above with a video straight from the archives (JAPAN 2K11), and fucking get in the Thunder Zone 4 real.
If you thought The Thunder Zone Kickback was over, you are out of your goddamn mind! We are back for the month of January 2K15 and we are giving away ALL THE ENERGY DRINKS WE HAVE LEFT IN STOCK. This is not a joke, this is not a game, this is real life. Also, special guest JX CANNON is gonna be “throwing down” a sick set of whatever the “f” he feels like. Fuck it, drink an energy drink. Get zooted. The Thunder Zone Kickback January 2K15: real life.
