This Friday in NYC: another JUICEBOXXX
DJ set. This time it is at what might just be the best sports bar in Brooklyn, a place by the name of the CALL BOX LOUNGE
. The party is called Dial In At The Call Box Lounge
and it features my friends BIG SOFT
plus the DJ debut of the great, sick artist Borna Sammak AKA DJ DJ CARRER
So come out… It is free and I heard you can get a bucket of Bud for like 20 bux or some shit. I can guarantee dance music but sadly can’t get much more specific than that. Just come out! I’ll be hiding in the secret DJ booth that actually doesn’t get used, but maybe we will use it on Friday! Regardless, I will be chilling out there… Getting Sick Wit It.
This Friday, Halloween night, I will be raging at BABYCASTLES, a video arcade in Manhattan, backed by the Thunder Zone Band (rumor has it, “Fred Durst” will on the drums and “Santa” will be playing guitar). Also on the bill is sick rapper JUNGLEPUSSY and a bunch of other shit. Should be fun, I might even dress up as Soy Bomb, who the fuck knows. I need to rock and roll so badly man, this Thunder Zone shit is a fucked up lifestyle and who knows where it begins or ends, you feel me?
Tonight in NEW YORK CITY
I will be doing a DJ set at the Artists Space
bookstore for the launch of Cecilia Corrigan
‘s new book Titanic
. There will be performances, readings… All sorts of shit! Plus some brews 2 drink I’m sure no doubt so come by and kick it… You KNOW I’ll be playing some Schwarz
remixes! Boxxx in Tribeca? THE THUNDER ZONE IS ALIVE AND WELL PEOPLE!
That’s right people, it’s that time of month again… THE THUNDER ZONE KICKBACK
is here and for this edition I’m bringing along my… Roomates? That’s right, Boxxx’s got roomies! Who da fuck knows how long this crazy thing called “life” will last but for now, fuck it. Let’s celebrate friendship in a very mellow “pub-style” situation. Free THUNDER ZONE
giveaways all night long, “dope visuals” and four unforgettable DJ sets… from the roommates.
DJ SETS FOR THE NIGHT:
JONATHAN COWARD (AKA SHAMS)
MATT KALLMAN (FROM THE BAND “REAL ESTATE”)
THE THUNDER ZONE KICKBACK – EVERY THIRD WEDNESDAY AT HAPPY FUN HIDEAWAY 1211 MYRTLE AVE BROOKLYN NEW YORK CITY FREE
This Monday in New York City I will be jamming at Santos Party House
with two of the best Rock And Roll bands in the game, both from Nashville. I’m talking about JEFF THE BROTHERHOOD
and DIARRHEA PLANET
. Jeff The Brotherhood
are old friends, we’ve gone on tour together and they even put out one of my records on LP on their label Infinity Cat
. I’m excited to see Diarrhea Planet live, these ragers have four guitars “in the mix” and are on a tip somewhere between sick Pop Punk and that ANDREW WK-style party rock insanity, so it’s fitting that the show is happening at a club owned by AWK himself. Come join me (and THE THUNDER ZONE BAND
) for a monday night full of mosh pits and American Rock And Roll intensity.
Brand new video from NU AMERICANA
force of nature DJ DOG DICK
for his song “Why’s A Dog?” Easily my favorite Dog Dick video yet, this one was supposedly influenced by the classic Phil Collins clip for “In The Air Tonight,” but obviously things got taken into a new arena. The end result is the kind of next level Americana that Dog Dick is infamous for and some American freakout insanity that the kids can believe in. Respect to the director Joe Skinner, respect to Dog Dick. You gotta be yourself! Just be yourself! The Life Stains is out now on HOSS
STATE OF THE THUNDER ZONE
is back for this Fall 2K14 “one off” and damn it feels good to just yell into a smartphone again. Talking about life, talking about THE THUNDER ZONE
– you know the drill. This is it, there is no turning back man. New things this Fall include a Japanese-only LIL UGLY MANE
jacket and the SCHWARZ
sample pack for all of your club music/prank call needs. 2015 will see a new JUICEBOXXX
mixtape and “proper” full length plus all sorts of stuff.
And also! The “Big Reveal” — My friend Leon Neyfakh wrote a book about me, to be published next fall by Melville House. Someone wrote a book about Juiceboy? I’m still processing it too. More info soon. I wish I could stop, I really do. I would probably live a happier life but I am on a mission to just keep doing the sick shit no matter what. Somebody, anybody… Buy a THUNDER ZONE HACKY SACK. It is worth the money. Never Surrender.
Last Saturday I played a show at PS1 for the New York Art Book Fair. Longstanding YouTube Rock And Roll videographer unARTigNYC was there to capture my full set and you can watch it above. That’s whatsup! It was a cool day of music, Todd P did a great job with the lineup on this one – everything from rap to metal to performance art. In other words… Nu Americana 101. Enter The Thunder Zone.

TUNNEL OF LOVE
were an awesome Rock And Roll band from Boston, maybe they are still around but somehow I doubt it. I first heard about these ragers through Ian from JAPANTHER
; he put out a 7″ for them on his label TAPES RECORDS
that I picked up one night in 2K4 while jamming in Green Bay with the legendary band LOST SOUNDS
. I eyed the record flipping through some sort of “distro box” and remembered a few sick videos I saw online of three shirtless dudes in striped tights and capes flipping out playing sick totally unhinged R N’R. I bought the 7″ and of course it was great, totally blown out rock action not unlike another favorite band, THE HOSPITALS
, but with more oldies covers.
Flash forward spring 2009. I’m in New York City playing at the final show of rock gods THEUSAISAMONSTER and TUNNEL OF LOVE are on the bill. If I remember correctly, they played right after THE MONSTER (who played in the middle of the show), set up on the floor and just fucking raged. They covered “Wild Thing” twice. They played “Paint It Black.” There were Christmas lights “in the mix.” This band is pure guts and American energy. I’ll never forget that show. Video of TUNNEL OF LOVE jamming below.
This Saturday, JUICEBOXXX AND THE THUNDER ZONE BAND invade MoMa PS1 in Long Island City for a performance at The New York Art Book Fair. I’m excited to get in the mix with a bunch of NYC ragers including RATKING, DARK SISTER and JUNGLEPUSSY and perform Modern American Music in a museum setting. Man sometimes I don’t know what the fuck I’m doing in this life but when I’m playing music things come together, if only for a second.
THIS IS IT PEOPLE. ROCK AND ROLL WILL NEVER DIE.
