I was preparing an Instagram post dedicated to the absolutely killer DEEJAY PUNK-ROC album “ChickenEye” (because I’m one of those boring fucks with a feed that’s 98% pictures of his cat or of his record collection when he’s not performing/on tour), and I went to his Discogs page to try to remind myself who he …
It took a very special occasion to get Friendlytown out of it’s normal meeting time, and that special occasion was a fundraiser show for WOZO-FM, Community Powered Radio. Granted, the location was the same (The Pilot Light), but the night, occasion, and audience was mostly different. Our volunteers, Tyler, Beth, and Jared, took calls all…30 minutes (that was our time slot) from a variety of interesting and confused people, to help raise money. Tune in and hear us confuse the hell out a bunch of people for a great cause.
In the run up to my album recording on June 30th (tickets here!), I’ve spent the past few weeks appearing on the podcasts of whoever would have me as a guest, and sitting down with some local bloggers to chat. In case hearing me talk for 45 – 50 minutes next Saturday isn’t enough, buckle …
Our local Pagemaster, Jaxx, takes the reigns for this, the premiere meeting of the Friendlytown Book Club! One by one, we get to chat about some super meaningful books that Jaxx handed to us as we got onstage. In some cases, like that of Dissenting Mayor Pamela, people came prepared with their own insane books to discuss. This was a great night. Enjoy listening to us philosophize our way through this one.
Does anyone in our fair community know who really crimed that murder? Was some lonely hustler hustlin’ that hustle on the side of the hooch swabblers in the ram tam wham bam thank you ma’am? Thankfully, Flint Chumley, voted Friendlytown’s #4 most boozy yet #1 most shadow-drenched detective, is on the case. He’s going to share those seductive tales about the underbelly of our town that THE MAN (Mayor Tyler, probably) doesn’t want you to know. We are through the looking glass, every one is a suspect, and I could swear that Bartending Mayor Todd overcharged me for that last Mickey’s.
This week, my buddies Aaron Chasteen, Boston McCown, and I had the pleasure of being guests on the 3rd episode of the podcast Authors in Abstract on the Southern Fried Radio Network. We got to talk about the writing process with the author-hosts, tell tales from our own “careers,” and then Dungeons-and-Dragons ourselves up …
We recently discovered just how much we were spending monthly for our city’s storage unit, and given some upcoming budget cuts, we’ve decided to go and empty it. With the help of our Mayors and City Council members, we’re going to go through some of our most beloved items and decide which things we just can’t bear to part with. Special appearances by comics from New York and Mobile!
Attention, bearded dudes in flannel shirts rolled up to your elbows! It’s time for Friendlytown to open up our very own craft brewery. Our official Brewmaster Liz Brooks is this week’s host. Not only is she presenting our concepts for the coolest, most trendiest craft beer facility possible, she also brought her very own home brew, which we all had to taste when we got onstage. Budweiser or Coors will be buying us out before we know it!
THE. TRUTH. IS. OUT. THERE. Or so says our city council. We’ve been hearing a whole bunch of strange accounts of extraterrestrials showing up around town, seen out over the Affable Ocean and even around the burnt ruins of the QEDopolis. This week, Detective Donnie Marsh visits us from places unknown (Chattanooga) to get to the bottom of this. He interviews various Friendlytownspeople about their claims. ARE WE ALONE? WHY IS MY CAPS LOCK STUCK
We just assume every town does this, you know, bringing a consultant in to help us set up an agglomerated dating profile at a city council meeting. Fortunately, Friendlytown’s love guru St. Thomas has all the right questions to get us on the path to sweet, sweet romance.
