Ep 58: Taylor Mac

April 27, 2016 | By | No Comments">No Comments


It’s all Taylor Mac this week!

At any given Mac show there’s singing, customs changes on stage (bare ass included), audience participation, as well as a high possibility of a make-out session. All of this is intentional- it’s smart, political, and funny. Tyler and Don talk with Mac about failure, theater in America, Drag queens in rural Tennessee, and what life’s like offstage.

Taylor who prefers the pronoun Judy is traveling the county work-shopping segments of A 24-hour Decade of Popular Music. The full 24-hour performance takes place this fall in New York. Mac is clear that the performance is not about pleasing the audience, but rather making them think, feel discomfort and be entertained. For Judy, it’s a good night if you’re bored one minute and moved to tears the next.

Ep 57: Henry Rollins & Joe Shanahan

“Scar tissue is stronger than regular tissue. Realize the strength, move on.” - Henry Rollins

General Admission is back with a new season! We’ve got so much planned for you guys so get those headphone ready, subscribe and share.

For our first official episode back Don sits down with singer and storytelling powerhouse Henry Rollins and Chicago rock venue legend Joe Shanahan. Shanahan is the owner of Metro, a venue anchored within the Chicago music scene. In this episode you’ll hear a discussion surrounding the relationship between bands and the venues that house them.

Henry talks how his band needed venues like The Metro in order to make enough money for a Denny’s Grand Slam breakfast and gas to make it to the next gig. Places like the Metro also need the bands and musicians so they can keep the lights on. It’s a symbiotic relationship.

This interview is part of an ongoing series of intimate conversation to be held at the Metro and sponsored by Dark Matter Coffee and Shure.

NOTE: THERE ARE SPOILERS CONTAINED IN THIS EPISODE.

We’re baaaaaaaaack! New, full episodes are coming in March, but we couldn’t let that time go by without saying SOMETHING about Star Wars.

Don Hall is a self-proclaimed Star Wars geek. Tyler Greene has never seen the films. (Well, he thinks he’s seen Episode 1 but, unsurprisingly, he can’t remember it). In this episode, we get to experience the films for the first time with Tyler and hear the guys’ review of Episode 7: The Force Awakens.
