Lisa Said of Piramid Scheme makes her Perfect Pop pick. It’s a Who song that promotes empathy for adolescent boys.
A special episode! Live outtakes from three bands who previously performed on Rockin’ the Suburbs. Belle Adair plays “Marooned.” Lisa Said plays “Comes and Goes.” And the Paranoid Style takes requests and plays “The Thrill is Back.”
We conclude Suburbs Live with some audience participation. We ask about their first album, first concert, artist their friends would be surprised they like, and favorite new song/album. It’s super fun.
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.
It’s Rockin’ the Suburbs Live! We interview singer-songwriter Lisa Said in front of an audience at Black Walnut Brewery in Leesburg VA. And she plays an original song too. Enjoy a performance of “Peel the Moon,” from Lisa’s new EP “Estranged.”
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.
Matthew Sweet joins the pod again, this time to talk about two songs he considers Perfect Pop. Plus, a listener pick closes out the week.
Listeners pick Perfect Pop songs by R.E.M. and Chicago’s the Bad Examples.
