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.
That’s right people, got some gigs coming up in New York City, where I guess I live, for the moment. Some good ones no doubt, with some great bands. Honestly I’m really siked about all four of these shows, they represent a nice cross-section of East Coast insanity activities. And this is not even to begin to mention my lil SXSW (god help us all) tour popping off in March… Stay tuned for more info on that. They are going to shit on all of your dreams but you gotta keep running.

This week I will be jamming in the Heartland and the Big City all in the name of that thing that I can never put my finger on but haunts me every night… Rock And Roll
, my dude. Firstly, see above. Big gig in New York City – namely Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Juiceboxxx, Pictureplane, Shams, DJ Big Black Poodle
. Always fun to jam with some day 1’s (also excited to see DJ Big Black Poodle for the first time) and just fucking rip it up on a Wednesday. FACEBOOK EVENT
Then I get on some sort of thing that moves me from point A to point B and end up in fucking Milwaukee, Wisconsin, a city I have a longstanding complex relationship with, but fuck it. I’m siked to still be “in the mix” after all these years. Do things get less confusing? No, they do not. Things are fucked up my dude!
Regardless, I’ll be bringing my lifestyle brand entertainment franchise THE THUNDER ZONE KICKBACK to the bar Fink’s for one night only on Friday, June 19. What has already become a legendary night for 4 people in New York City is about to change the game for a bunch of unsuspecting weekend bar hoppers. You know the drill… I’m djing all night. Free Thunder Zone Energy Drinks. You know we got that fucking “Thunder Zone Video Mix Tape” popping off… All that and more and it’s free… FACEBOOK EVENT.
Then Saturday June 20 I’m throwing down a live set at DUMMERFEST happening at THE METAL GRILL in CUDAHY WISCONSIN. Juiceboxxx at what some might call a Pop Punk Festie? You better believe there are no limits to the kind of freaked out music and culture JUICEBOXXX and THUNDER ZONE penetrates. I for one am excited to see Wisconsin glory boys TENEMENT get sik wit it, their new record is a next level move and some seriously conceptual and uplifting American Pop. FACEBOOK EVENT.
So there you have it, one week in the demented-yet-positive freaked out American culture vortex that is THE THUNDER ZONE. Check out a gig, do what you gotta do. Stay alive, keep fighting. Fuck it man. “State Of 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.
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.
CHECK OUT THIS VIDEO BELOW IF YOU REALLY WANNA UNDERSTAND WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT…
New York City has a lot of awful rock bands and that is a gooddamn fact. The ratio between good bands and bad bands in this city is probably as bad as it’s ever been, and don’t even get me started about “Brooklyn.” But fuck it, there is still some good shit kicking around. Not everyone is doing the “Robert Hood Thru A Fuzz Pedal” thing, some motherfuckers are still using guitars! Check it out.
Haribo are a fully singular power trio that I never get tired of going to see play live. Wasted-style shredder guitar combined with blown-out drum pad insanity, plus Raúl De Nieves freaking out on top of all of that? This band is so sick!
Haribo operate within a classic tradition of NYC performance/art-punk bands but sound like no one else. Bow down!
SHOW ME THE BODY
Show Me The Body are some serious young guns coming into the mix with an ill style all their own. You might look at me like I’m fucking crazy when I say “Lungfish meets Rage Against The Machine with a goddamn banjo” but I’m not playing around!
This is some serious Nu Americana, people! Don’t sleep on these kids, I played with them last Saturday and they got a sick pit going from the jump. Show Me The Body!
You already know about the legendary Extreme Animals, but over the past few years they have morphed from their signature Rainbow Rock style into something tougher. Southern Rap and Nu-Metal come together with some freaked out video projections to create a band that must be reckoned with.
When I call these freaks the NEGATIVLAND FOR THE ENERGY DRINK GENERATION, I am not playing around. Insanely underrated band, for fans of shredding guitars and relevant kulture jamming.
HANK WOOD & THE HAMMERHEADS
Hank Wood & The Hammerheads are a Punk Rock band that I can believe in. Garage’d out farfisa action whips head-on with some seriously driving “Capitol P Punk” but that’s not it. Yeah man, you ARE hearing some insanely twisted “aux percussion” sitting sick “in the mix,” taking everything to the next level.
This band is so banging! Something to unite a lot of different tribes and just an overall “great punk band” suitable for listening in the past, present and future.
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!
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.
THE THUNDER ZONE KICKBACK
is a new night in New York City brought to you by THUNDER ZONE ENTERTAINMENT
. Every third Wednesday this fall, THE HAPPY FUN HIDEAWAY
in Bushwick will be the place to chill out, kick back and enjoy some of your favorite THUNDER ZONE PRODUCTS
in a relaxing environment. You can even play Jenga… What more do you people want?!?!?!?
I will be the “resident DJ” and Monica Mirabile will be “in the cocktail mix” plus guests and hosts every month. For September we got the mighty DJ LUCAS from the dope DARK WORLD crew rolling through. This guy is sick! So come out, because of course it is FREE and about as low key as an event where the shotgunning of THUNDER ZONE ENERGY DRINKS is encouraged can be.
“Kick Back, My Dude”
