At our Suburbs Live event, guest Lisa Said joins us in a game of Less Talk More Rock. We each pick three songs. We get 30 seconds to set up our song, then the song is played for 1 minute, then we all get 30 seconds to discuss the song. Plus, Lisa Said performs “Regular Guy” from her new EP “Estranged” at the end of the show. Recorded in front of a live audience at Black Walnut Brewery in Leesburg VA.
Patrick just finished two books and wants to share them with you. The first is “Meet me in the Bathroom,” by Lizzy Goodman, an oral history of the New York music scene in the 2000s, which brought us the Strokes, Vampire Weekend, Interpol, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, LCD Soundsystem and many other cool indie bands. The second book is “You Never Give me Your Money” by Peter Doggett, about the business and legal battles of the Beatles after they broke up.
We talk with Glenn Dicker and Billy Maupin of Yep Roc, an impressive independent label that is celebrating its 20th anniversary. It’s roster includes established artists like Nick Lowe, Chuck Prophet and such emerging artists as Mandolin Orange and the Stray Birds. They discuss the changing music business of the past two decades.
