In an effort to put out at least two episodes of the show each month, I have decided to launch SPAZ Radio. SPAZ Radio will consist of music-only episodes that will appear regularly between interview episodes, featuring songs by local and touring bands that have played shows in Seattle recently.

I hope to have a theme for each episode to help pick the music that I play. For the first several SPAZ Radio episodes, the theme will be "Best of Venue". For these episodes, I will pick songs by bands that I have seen play at a specific location in Seattle; the first one will be "Best of GRN STRP Haus"!

Since interview episodes come out on the 1st Monday of every month, I'm planning to release SPAZ Radio episodes on the 3rd Monday of every month. However, the first SPAZ Radio episode may be a bit late, since I am just now getting started on it. We'll see!

I've decided to start posting small lists of upcoming shows on a monthly basis. After all, the whole point of SPAZ is to promote local music. The listed shows will mostly be the shows that I am planning to attend or would at least like to attend if I'm able. There are lots of great places on the internet that list shows more comprehensively than I ever could, so I'll leave that to them and just tell you where you might see me!

Here are the shows I currently have written down for November:

  • Wed 11/04/2009 - Koozbane, Random Orbits, Deathlist5, Rebel Skum, Rev (of Success!) at Studio Seven, 7pm.
  • Thu 11/12/2009 - Erin McKeown at The Tractor Tavern, 7pm.
  • Sat 11/14/2009 - Teenage Bottlerocket, Cobra Skulls, The Cute Lepers, Head at El Corazon, 8pm.
  • Fri 11/20/2009 - Smooth Sailing at The Rendezvous, 8pm.
  • Sat 11/21/2009 - The Damage Done, Shakes, Smokejumper at Grn Strp Haus, 8pm.
  • Tue 11/24/2009 - Off With Their Heads, Municipal Waste, Phobia and Cauldron at El Corazon, 8pm.

I will update this list as new shows come to my attention!


  • Tues 11/10/2009 - The Damage Done, Requin, and others at The Bit Saloon, 8pm.

I've decided against releasing an introductory episode of the podcast, since it ended up seeming kind of boring and unnecessary. Instead, I'm just writing up this quick post about how I expect the show to function.

The primary format of the Seattle Punk Audio Zine will consist of a 10-25 minute live interview that I've recorded with a band. Interspersed throughout the interview will be 3-5 songs by the band, chosen by me and the artist(s) in question. I'm going to try to stick to this formula as much as possible and post at least one show a month (on the first Monday of every month) that follows this format.

There will probably be some off-format episodes as well. Examples of these alternate programs might be radio-style shows that are primarily music (perhaps chosen based on a theme of some sort), interviews with non-musicians, or live concert recordings. These shows will (hopefully) be posted between interviews as "bonus content" rather than replacing a monthly interview episode.

Episode 001 should be available on Monday, 11/02/2009. It will feature an interview and music from The Damage Done, one of my favorite Seattle bands. I hope you enjoy it.

Seattle Punk Audio Zine is a brand new podcast that will feature interviews and music by punk bands living and playing in the Pacific Northwest. The first episode will appear in late October or early November and will briefly introduce the show and its format. The first "real" episode will follow within a week, with new episodes appearing on a monthly basis after that.
