This episode features Will Stephen (SNL) and we discussed The Cure's - Pictures of You, waterfalls of chimes and all! It's a fun story of why the song stuck with him, AIM profiles, seeing The Cure live, and going to shows alone. Trevor Bachman was our musical guest and he played a beautiful cover of the song.
Anna Drezen (SNL, Reductress, How May We Hate You?) stopped by to talk about Dave Matthews Band - American Baby. What followed was an enjoyable episode filled with stories of summer romance, mic drops, and lots of goofs. Our musical guest this month was Jessy Tomsko. Check out her site for more of her music and tour dates!
Christian Finnegan (Are We There Yet?, Chapelle's Show, Best Week Ever) joined us for a special holiday-esque episode of Repeater! Musical guests Connor Ratliff and Mikey Erg covered Elvis Costello - All Grown Up and some secular holiday tunes. It just so happens that all three of our guests are HUGE Elvis Costello fans! Christian includes Elvis Costello in his 50 Plus artists (Artists that he loves at least 50 of their songs) and considers this to be one of 'his' songs. We talk about Elvis Costello, high school hair metal bands, where creativity comes from, and Kid Rock.
Bowen Yang (Live On Broadgay, Lake Homo High, Broad City, Pop Roulette) joins us to talk about Beyoncé's "Schoolin' Life". It's an incredible conversation about changing your mind, big life decisions, and doing things that makes you happy (and the Goofy Movie). Keith Rubin (Singer/Songwriter) came by to play the cover and one of his own. Bowen is a fricken delight! Follow him on twitter! This is for them bitter somethings Stop living in regret, baby, it's not over yet
Ivan Anderson joined us to talk about Imagine a Jump (John Lennon / Van Halen mashup) Ivan had a lot of thoughts on this mashup and we talk about everything from Jamiroquai's hats to social media overload.
Nore Davis (Comedian, "Home Game" available on iTunes & Spotify) came by to talk to us about DMX - Intro, from It's Dark and Hell Is Hot. Rap duo Sharkside performed a few songs! Nore was running AND we forgot to hit record! (we've all been there!) This episode picks up during a conversation with our musical guests Sharkside about West Side Story, which is where they got their name! They also unsurprisingly had a ton of thoughts on Hamilton. Enjoy and reach out to us on twitter or facebook! Our next show is Tuesday, October 11th at 7:30pm at QED in Astoria Queens
This one certainly was surprising. We had Annalise Domenighini come in a few months ago and she chose Wheatus' "Teenage Dirtbag" as her song. Turns out Twitter is excellent and we managed to get Wheatus' main man, Brendan B. Brown, come in to talk to us about Steve Winwood's "Valerie."
We talked to Aparna Nancherla (Late Night with Seth Meyers, Inside Amy Schumer, Whiplash at UCB) about Styx's "Show Me The Way (Desert Storm Mix)" and got to discuss growing up outside of DC, making your own decisions about music, and of course, US military propaganda. Aparna is amazing and you should buy her new album "Just Putting It Out There." She was also recently on Conan!
