Freakshow! – 4/1/10

April 2, 2010

Freakman John talks about the issues with the Batman; hilarity ensues.From March 26-28, the first ever East Coast version of the Penny Arcade Expo – a love-in for video game nerds, D&D fanboys, Magic Card affectionados, board game heroes and other “geeks” – was held at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston’s Back Bay… and we were there!  But an event of such magnitude could not possibly be contained to one weekend, so this week’s Freakshow! celebrates the wonder of PAX and our video game obsession that inspired us to be there with a special show that contains both the best video game tunes under the sun and enlightening, edifying and downright funny interviews conducted by Freakman John on the show floor.  And it’s all brought together through the magic of harmonious dissonance™, proving that no matter how much you try and change the formula, you can always expect Freakshow! to provide an amazing auditory experience!

Freakshow! – 2/11/10

February 11, 2010

After the last week’s incredibly pessimistic and bitter episode, we needed to cheer ourselves up with some awesome music.  And so we did!  With an eclectic mix of classic punk, Japanese hip-hop and some of the greatest guitarists of all time, bookended by Freakman John’s exalting of Nine Black Alps, ballet talk, fun science projects to do at your local bar and dreams of a Sarah Palin future, this is nothing less than a Freakshow! for the ages.  Not to mention one that features one of the most unique (and best) sets we’ve ever done.  It’s a brave new world, folks!

Freakshow! – 1/28/10

February 1, 2010

Freakshow!This week’s Freakshow! finds us joined by special guest Kevin Corea-Berger (DJ Cucumber Slice as he insists on being called, much to our chagrin) who brings his own music expertise to the table with his own set that go places no Freakshow! has ever gone before while staying true to the “harmonious dissonance” that drives the show.  Listen in awe as Freakman John and Kevin dance around the studio to kicking tunes while discussing important topics such as kids these days, putting Nike pumps in body parts, and why Australia sucks!

Freakshow! – 1/21/10

1/21/10

Apparently all we wanted to do this week is rock, so our second episode of the season is a little more heavy on the punk angle than usual.  But if you think we’re simply being a one-trick-pony here, you’ve obviously never listened to a Freakshow! before, as we’ve still got a ton of amazing music carefully assembled to prove that this “harmonious dissonance” thing we’re always going on about isn’t just annoying marketing term!  Furthermore, we guarantee that if you don’t learn something new about at least one of the songs or bands in this show, then you’ve either listened to this episode live and heard all this before or are actually Freakman John!  If it’s the latter is the case, he would like you to kindly get out of his head, thanks.

Freakshow! 1/14/10

For our triumphant return to the airwaves, Freakshow! kicks off its third season in style with some old stand-bys, some new classics, and a smattering of songs that run the gamut of the garage, punk, and psychedelic rock we love so very, very much.  Playing it a bit safe, perhaps?  Arguably, but when your set’s as good as ours, does it really matter?

Freakshow 091009

For week two, we decided to go a little louder and faster than the wildly eclectic season premiere.  But of course, with a couple improvisations, a bit of interesting, insightful talk (well, as interesting and insightful as we can be), some off-air confidence boosters (more on that in a later update), and more awesome music than you can shake a stick at (including what we will go as far to say are, as of this writing, some of the best sets we have ever assembled), this episode proved that Freakshow! is not just back in full form, it’s better than ever.  This ain’t the Freakshow! you used to know; this is Freakshow! 2.0, baby!

Freakshow 090309

In what can only be described as a vicious mission statement to our newfound audience and returning fanbase, we kicked off this season of Freakshow! in full force, with some setlist staples and awesome additions to the Freakshow! catalog, ping-ponging from decade to decade and boldly going where no show (or even Freakshow!) has gone before.
