New release “ADAPTER” + upcoming shows

Filed under: downloads,news,shows — admin @ 7:06 PM November 7, 2013

LOTS OF COOL STUFF TO SHARE! upcoming NYC shows, new music, Northwest shows, etc



This is a weird one, an almost 60 minute mixtape of misc recordings that didn’t have another home. Lots of strange, silly stuff, but I think it makes for a real fun listen. Good for listening while walking, driving. Listen, download or order here:


You can download for $0 if you share an email address (which obviously I already have) or donate more if you want. The cassette copies are numbered and limited to whenever I get sick of dubbing and packaging them.


There’s a Radio Shock show TONIGHT NOV.7 in Portland OR at East End!
Starting sometime after 9PM with the multimedia group The Fog Father.
TOMORROW NOV.8 in Seattle I’m playing a potentially super-weird show. These are the directions: “go to 35th and Evanston and look for signs/arrows/balloons”
Or watch twitter @radioshock for details. Guerrilla post-apocalyptic style parking garage show.
Also playing: Wind Swept Planes, Plastic Boner Band, Ron Rice
Coming up soon in MANHATTAN (!?!) at Leftfield, a bar on the Lower East Side which you may know by one of a dozen other names it’s had in the last few years.
I’ll be playing with a mix of electronic and garage pop and experimental acts.
and in BROOKLYN at the Silent Barn
I’ll be playing with Pod Blotz (amazing), Peter Kolovos, and Private Dancer (member of YOU.)
And coming up, watch for a new 7″ single and accompanying music video. I’m pretty excited about that.

Radio Shock LIVE events!

(added some new emails to this list, as always if you want off, just reply & say “unsubscribe” – alternate methods for receiving updates below)


* at FITNESS, 1196 Myrtle Ave Brooklyn

* showtime 9PM, $5

Fitness is a cool DIY art gallery/basement venue which has really been going nuts hosting cool show/parties. They tend to go late, but Radio Shock looks to be playing second, so… you probably just want to get there not too long after 9. Stay late though, this is a KILLER line-up.

VIOLET RAID (MV Carbon alter ego!)

TIMEGHOST (Providence dude, rules, intense electronics and stark light show)




Facebook event:

and a week later in Chapel Hill, NC…


* Fri MAY 17 & Sat MAY 18

* at NIGHTLIGHT, 405 1/2 West Rosemary Street, Chapel Hill, NC

Amazing line-up of basically every east coast noise/jank freak act. All my favorite bands. Tiny sampling: Mincemeat or Tenspeed, DLMG, Crank Sturgeon, UHO, Humanbeast, Embarker, Rat Bastard, Clang Quartet, Form A Log?!?! …too many more.

Starts at 6 on Friday, 5 on Saturday, and Radio Shock plays early Saturday, about 6:45PM.
