Going Into The Weekend

We had Live Band Karaoke last night at the G St Pub and it was a lot of fun. It was uneventful in the sense that I have nothing to complain about, but I notice our band is improving. We're still not flawless in our execution, but there's definitely a better chemistry building.

Since no one in the crowd did anything drunkenly idiotic, and most of the song went decently well, I don't have many funny stories from the night.

I have another show tonight in Roseville at the Boxing Donkey. It starts up at 9:30pm and the address is 300 Lincoln. If you want some Irish Pub drinking action then you'll definitely want to come out.

In other news, the new FM radio station in Sacramento is off the hook. 94.7 is already my number 1 preset. It plays all 1990s and 2000s rock. The interesting thing here, is that this station is awfully similar to the old KWOD 106.5. That station became "The Buzz" where you risk hearing Nirvana followed by Salt-N-Pepa. You'll rock along to some Stone Temple Pilots, then get ambushed by Boyz II Men. I don't mind the occasional 1990s dance/R&B/rap song, but when it is on the radio when I'm not in the mood to hear it, it's a problem.

94.7 pretty much makes up for The Buzz and plays mostly songs that I really want to hear. I heard The Bloodhound Gang "The Bad Touch" yesterday- when is the last time you heard that song?!

They have their playlist on their website:

Pretty impressive stuff. Have a great weekend, and I'll see you on the flip side.

PS: Julius Peppers to the Bears? Yes, please.

There are 3 Bloodhound Gang songs in my top 25 most played songs on my iPod. Bad Touch is one of them...

I am aware of my maturity level (or lack thereof).

The last time I heard The Bad Touch was a few months ago...when I sang it at a karaoke bar and brought the house down. TBG are freaking awesome.

I hope that you aren't insulting Boyz II Men. They made some solid high school dance music.

Rae- your maturity level is at an excellent level. I worry when someone takes themselves so seriously that they can't enjoy a little Bloodhound Gang.

G$, just because Boyz II Men songs allowed us to slow dance with girls and discover burgeoning sexuality, it doesn't mean I want them showing up on my radio station right after Foo Fighters. It feels like an ambush.

Motown Philly is awesome, though.

The bad touch came out when me and Mary first started dating so it was kind of our first song. and was featured at our wedding. "You and me baby ain't nothin' but mammals
So let's do it like they do on the Discovery Channel."
