Liner Notes:
Here are some shows I’m hustling at Balliceaux this week…

Alright. This week I’m doing something that I almost never do. I’m actually going out in public and spinning tunes (Thursday September 30th 10PM at Balliceaux). Yes, I did do a little spinning a couple weeks ago with Rei & Jim, but this is the first time in a long time I’ve taken a solo flight behind the tuntable/CD player/iPod in the feeble hope of entertaining people by my little old lonesome. To liven up the night, I’ve made a couple of videos, invited some special guests and there will be liquid discounts that the Gestapo at the ABC won’t let me tell you about in a public forum such as this one to enhance the selection of music I’ll be playing for your possible amusement. I will not be playing any one type of music or taking (stupid) any requests. Hopefully, you can make it out. It won’t cost you anything.

Also on tap this week is DJ Doddie on Monday with Bio Ritmo strutting their stuff on Tuesday. As good as those two functioning entertainment entities are, the show I’m most excited about is on Saturday when The Session Rockers come to town. As much as I love reggae music, sadly most of it these days is soulless drivel played by and for dipshits. The Session Rockers are the rare here and now exception. They have great lyrics free from insipid sophomoric peace & love hippie sentiments, the drummer doesn’t sound like he plays for Phil Collins and the band is spot on 21st century assimilation of classic late 70’s dropping third brutality. A truly awesome band for a genre that sadly is filled with more suck than substance. Trust me on this. I don’t care enough about you to lie to you.

NEXT NEW SHOW:10/04/10

The complete set list for this week’s show is posted here. All previous show set lists (121 as of this writing) are on my blog. If you hate MySpace (and who doesn’t), look me up on Facebook. I post track listings there as well.

2 hours of Bopst Show programming airs Sundays, 12-2PM (EST-USA), on KAOS Radio Austin.

Until Next Time:

Stay clean,
