A Season in Hell #129: Ghosts in the Honeymoon

What a great day. I took the day off because today is the only religious holiday that I celebrate: St. Stupid's Day, brought to you by Bishop Joey and the First Church of the Last Laugh. If you live in the Bay Area, then you have no excuses, you need to join us next year. I love living here.

After a couple of hours parading around the financial district, making fun of the suits, it was time to get ready for the next great event of the afternoon: the wedding of Dominic Trix to his bride-to-be, Alicia.

About a month ago I was asked to officiate their nuptials. Being an ordained minister of the Universal Life Church since 1996, I was only happy to oblige my dear friend from KFJC. I've known the great Dominic since I started their way back in 1988. Trix and Alicia tied the knot at the beautiful Sutro Baths in SF. And what a beautiful afternoon and ceremony it was.

Following the ceremony it was time to get to the studio. Trix and Alicia have a noise duo named Acid Blast. They brought the entire wedding party into the studio, and performed live in the final 20 minutes of the show. It's worth a listen. Turn it up!

In the first hour, Alexis, from The Dark Room Theater, to talk about the upcoming stage adaptation of Ghostbusters Live!. Go here for more information. The Dark Room is known for their colorful performances, from their Twilight Zone episodes, to a great Princess Bride. You'll even catch yours truly co-hosting Bad Movie Night there from time to time. Go to this show!

The music for the first hour is pretty damn funky. Get ready to put your dancing shoes on. 

The second hour features the return to the Radio Valencia studios of my dear friend and talented guitar slinger, Eric McFadden. Eric has a new band, T.E.N., featuring Eric, along with Thomas Pridgen of Mars Volta and Norwood Fisher of Fishbone. They're playing The Independent in SF this Friday. I can tell you where I'll be that night. We played a couple of tunes from the new EP, spoke about the full-length they're about to release, and the upcoming tour. Eric really does need to find some time to sleep. In the meantime, ROCK ON!

In the final 20 minutes or so, the newlywed noise-makers, Acid Blast performed in the studio to a live audience. We had about 20 people hanging out with us. This would have been impossible in our former digs. We love our new home! 

It's almost too much to take.

Don't sell yourself short, celebrate the greatness of this show by streaming it here.
