The Drunk Rock Show

Hosted ByNeil Donelly

Back when I was a fifteen-year-old music entrepreneur, a member of one of the bands I'd booked told me he didn't want to be famous, just known locally. He wanted to be able to play shows, and then go get a drink with the people who were in the crowd supporting him. He wanted them to know him for more than just his music, and that is the vibe I intend to create on this show.

    by Neil Donnelly/Jonathan O'Neal on 12 Jun 2019 at 11:00 am

    In this episode, I talked with Jonathan O'Neal of the Arkadian about their tour, and particularly their upcoming show at Howler's on June 17th, the different types of venues where they play, wizard rock, video games, Greece, and their influences in terms of both video games and music. There's a little bit of stuff about serial murderers, because whatever. I think by now we all know I write horror and think serial killers are interesting.
