OK if I am keeping it 100 with you people this is one of the better lineups I’ve seen in a minute in New York City, so I’m siked to be holding it down on the “1s and 2s” all night long. I got a lot of love for this show, hell I even put out a Gods Wisdom tape on THUNDER ZONE. Beyond anything else, I’m happy to finally get to see Lucy and Mal Devisa live for the first time. So check the flyer, do some research, come out, fight the darkness, don’t be afraid to change your life, eat McDonalds occasionally if it helps you get through the day, the world is fucked up, don’t ask me, I’m an idiot, whatever… Life. See you in the pit.
This month’s episode of THE BOXXX REPORT RADIO on channel 2 of the London-based NTS RADIO is now available to stream whenever you feel like it, and I would say you should go ahead and try that out, because we got some sick special features including the legendary KYLE H MABSON in the mix (he also did that promo image above, if you even had to ask), that DJ GEORGE COSTANZA song of the month and the DOGS IN ECSTASY one-minute mini-mix. Plus a bunch of new and maybe not so new music, done only the way The Boxxx Report Radio can do it.
So check it out right here and try to stay positive in this deeply twisted world.
Next Friday, January 27, I return to Los Angeles for my first show in that city in quite some motherfucking time. It is also an “old school” style solo throwdown, my first in the USA without the band in also… Quite some motherfucking time. Let me set the scene for you: I will be jamming at my old friend Cle’s party CLUB FIST at the legendary CHEETAHS nightclub. Should be one for the ages. Not much more to say at this exact time other than, shit, I know it is extremely hard, but try to stay positive… It is probably not the worst idea in the world. Everything is fucked.
The next JUICEBOXXX gig is the last of 2K16: New Years Eve at Club Garibaldi in Milwaukee. I’m playing with Fat Wreck Chords pop punk kingpinsDIRECT HIT! as well as my old friends Shane and Nathan from CALL ME LIGHTNING‘s new thing BAD GRADES. Also on the bill… The Oi! band ASSAULT & BATTERY. That’s right motherfuckers, Boxxx is playing a punk rock show on New Years Eve. I’ll have the band with me and I’ll also be djing between bands. Oh, and I’ll have a bunch of THUNDER ZONE ENERGY DRINK that expires that night. I’ll be giving that shit away, fuck it. See you there, in the pit.
The confusing BOXXX REPORT micro-empire (OK it is just an internet newsletter and an internet radio show) continues to roll out into the unknown. The radio show is made monthly for the excellent London net station NTS and the December ep is a barnburner. Beyond the usual freaked out blend of high energy rap, punk and whatever, beyond the usual recurring features (the DOGS IN ECSTASY one-min mix, which took things to the next level with “Britpop Breaks Volume One,” and the DJ GEORGE COSTANZA song of the month), we also got an exclusive mini-mix from CUNTRY NOISE of ODWALLA88.
So what are you waiting for, stream it right here and check out the full Boxxx Report Radio archiveright here and while you’re at it why not sign up for the newsletter right here?
Tonight at the legendary PRINTED MATTER in New York City I am doing a DJ set at the launch party for the new SEX MAGAZINE anthology. I’ve seen this book–it’s thick and sick, plus inside there is an interview with myself plus interviews I conducted with other artists I love and admire. All of that and much more, SEX really has been a positive force on the internet so it’s great to see it finally in physical form. Come out to the launch, I’ll play a few cozy rap songs. This one is for all the kids out there trying to stay sane as we finally shut down a fucked up 2K16.
In an insane turn of events I am currently in Innsbruck, Austria, gearing up to play a 6 hour solo set on Saturday in the middle of the mountains. The mysterious superfood company SUPERGOOD flew me in for this very rare, very insane performance situation, part of the Premierentage Festival.
This is a really fucked up moment in time and I must say, I feel fucking crazy. The world is twisted and confusing, and I am just as lost as anyone else. Life keeps going, though. I’m excited to spread whatever insanity I have been developing forever with my music and THUNDER ZONE, and special weird solo freakout sets in Europe are a part of that. There is very little information to spread, if you are in Austria, do some googling, the answer will come to you. Documentation after the fact, no doubt. But if you are doubting, check out this video below. Somehow I was able to break free of the chains of darkness for a three minute very special reunion STATE OF THE THUNDER ZONE in the mountains. For the most part. Who knows. Keep your head up.
The newest release on Thunder Zone is one that I am extremely proud of. A true meeting of the minds. American insanity 2016 style. The beat goes on. Let me lay it down for you: two new songs by LA-via-BMORE duo ODWALLA88 featuring a remix from frequent Zone collaborator and cult rap legend LIL UGLY MANE and art from Max Eisenberg aka DJ DOG DICK.
This is an important release and there is a lot to say (to start, ODWALLA88 are a game changing American punk band, and the remix and artwork are just insane kickers that will blow some minds… only on THUNDER ZONE) but the most important thing of all is that you support the goddamn Thunder Zone and buy a few copies RIGHT HERE. It comes with a sticker insert and is limited to 250 hand numbered copies. Please keep going, kids. The world is a fucked up ball of darkness but we all gotta try our best to stay positive and find some sort of meaning.
Listen, I know the November edition of The Boxxx Report Radio is right up on deck, happening on the same day as the insane and dark United States election… Shit. What does it all mean? Beats me, I’m just seriously trying to stay alive one day at a time style and change my life for the better. It is not easy. Anyways, in case you missed the October Boxxx Report Radio on the great London net station NTS (channel 2), you can check it out right here. It features a mix from Detroit/NYC expert mixmaster Abby plus all the monthly insanity (DJ George Costanza Song Of The Month, Dogs In Ecstasy Mini-Mix) you have come to expect.
NEW YORK CITY. We got a special one cooking up this Saturday night at The Silent Barn in Brooklyn. A rare NYC performance from H-Town’s finest… B L A C K I E… ALL CAPS WITH SPACES, alongside a set from myself (with the East Coast Thunder Zone Band) and Negashi Aramada (AKA BLUNT FANG). Plus a DJing from YUNG MAYNE! Shit, that is a good lineup. If you are unfamiliar with the important work that B L A C K I E has been doing over the past decade plus, may I suggest reading this conversation I had with the man for SEX MAGAZINE?CHECK IT OUT.
Doors open at Midnight, yeah it’s a late night rager, but well worth your time and cash, fucking hit the FB event right here and I’ll see you when I see you. Might just be my only East Coast show of the fall…
