It’s the third Thursday of July, 2014, and I’m in town and spinning tunes tonight at Audio Cheeseburgers. I’ll be winding down the decks of the Good Luck, playing my favorite AC jams from throughout the years.
If you can, come on down for a drink, a chat, to hear some dope tunes or a little of everything.
Music starts at 10.
As always, it’s chill.
I haven’t made a flier for Audio Cheeseburgers in a while, but I really like this one.
I’ll be playing some randomly fun tunes from various sets tonight, plus some new songs I’ve heard this past month, so if you want to get wicked, or just chill, stop on by.

Sick of Secrets
Fracking, for those not in the know, is the process of injecting chemical-laden water at high speed into the ground, so as to extract the last vestiges of useable hydrocarbons from a particular site. Bully for those who turn whatever is extracted into folding green, but the neighbors have a tendency to find their tap water undrinkable and/or flammable thanks to the chemicals being injected into the ground, and folks in places like Oklahoma, Texas and California will tell you all about the earthquakes that happen near active fracking sites.
The state fathers of the North Carolina General Assembly, it seems, do not want you or anyone else to know the precise composition of the poisons being injected into the ground in order to lap up whatever mouthfuls of gas and oil there are to be had. Three Republican senators from that august chamber have coughed up a bill that would make it a felony to disclose the chemicals used in the fracking process.
Not for nothing, and try to contain your shock, but the three North Carolina state senators pushing this bill have each received lavish campaign contributions from a lobbying firm called McGuire Woods, which represents gas and oil companies like Koch Industries and Halliburton. Far be it from me to wave the bloody shirt, but it strikes me as singularly obnoxious that elected officials are seeking to criminalize providing information to the public about why the water they drink is probably killing them because of the crud being pumped into their groundwater by the companies doling out money to keep it secret.

Think Chill - S/S 2014
Someone asked me to make a mixtape for the summer. Well, it ain’t summer yet, but it sure damn feels like it here in LA.
I put together a half-hour of jams that keep me cool in the heat and remind me of chill summertimes of the past. Some you may know all the words to, some you’ve never even thought about listening to.
Give it a shot and download it here.
THINK CHILL - s/s 2014
Junior Kimbrough, “I’m In Love”
The Ventures, “Music To Watch Girls Go By”
The Rats, “Spoonful”
The Misfits, “Where Eagles Dare”
Plastic Bertrand, “Ça Plane Pour Moi”
The Squids, “Just One Kiss”
Kisses, “Air Conditioning”
Todd Terje, “Preben Goes To Acapulco”
Every one of these songs reminds me of summer.

It came up real fast - the Third Thursday of May - but it’s hear! And Audio Cheeseburgers is back, TONIGHT, at the Good Luck Bar in Los Feliz. In the spirit of the hashtag, I’m making tonight a true Throwback Thursday.
I’ll be grilling cuts with some fine age to them. Nothing after 2010, the year this once-a-month sonic barbecue got underway.
Come on in from the heat, enjoy a frosty libation and some choice jams:
- Classic Mod Rock
- Punk and Garage Noise
- Grimy Delta Muck
- Country Funk
- Greasy Acid Jazz
- 70s AM Gold
- And other assorted tracks
I’m kicking the night off with twenty-six songs, titled A to Z, from across the musical palette. So join me early and savor the flavors.
Music starts at 10.
It’s pretty chill.
DON’T CONSUME ELECTRICITY WITH YR A/C
BEAT THE HEAT WITH COLD DRINKS AND CHILL TUNES
