Episode 18 is in the barn!  The Barnhouse was an awesome, short-lived house show venue in the University District of Seattle, WA.  Michael, the dude what made it happen, still puts on shows occasionally at his new digs, but it doesn't have a fancy name that I know of, so I'm lumping it all under The Barnhouse!  In addition, you get two extra songs from bands that haven't played the venue, because I'm cool like that.  Enjoy!

Episode 15 is out of order! Normally the first Monday of each month is dedicated to an interview episode. However, this month's interview has been slightly delayed, so rather than post an interview late, I decided to switch this month's episodes around. So, for episode 15, you get a new radio episode, and episode 16 will feature an interview. Hopefully things will be back to normal after that, with another interview for episode 17 and a radio episode for 18.

  • 05:35 - "Sidewalk Girl" by Premise Beach, from At Promise Beach
  • 08:27 - "Blah Blah Jet-Skis Blah Blah Blah" by Partners In 818, from A Well Lit Place For Shady People
  • 11:05 - "Island of Pogo Pogo" by Groovie Ghoulies, from World Contact Day

Episode 14 is something that rhymes with fourteen! The Grn Strp Haus has been busy lately, so I think it's high time that I highlited a few more of the excellent bands that have played there. Unfortunately, the venue has a limited lifespan left, as it will be closing its doors at the end of the summer when it's current residents (as awesome a bunch of people as ever there were) move on to greener pastures.
