Power Chord Academy and more

Just back from the insane awesomeness that was Punk Rock Bowling 2011 in Vegas. Thanks to the Stern brothers for having me back, and to everyone who caught my set and suffered through the PA issues with me. Had a killer time all around. Big ups to Converse for the new kicks!

Added some new shows to the calendar for the summer. In addition to the run I'll be doing with Riverboat Gamblers /
Off With Their Heads / Dead To Me  there is a new gig with Sloppy Seconds in August, that should be a hoot. Will be announcing some festival appearances for the fall soon as well, just working out the details. 

I'm also stoked to announce that I will be appearing as a presenter for Power Chord Academy. If you are unfamiliar, it is a rad organization that helps teenagers work their way into the music industry, check them out here:


More details on my appearance will be coming in the future weeks.

I'm also putting the finishing touches on the long in-the-works Altercation Archival book, which I hope to have out by the end of the summer. Pre-orders will include extra sweet goodies, more info as it gets closer to the finish line. The book will collect some of the best interviews I've conducted over the years (Henry Rollins, Misfits, Avail and many, many more), some rad never-before-published Q&A's (Weird Al! Against Me! Robert Englund!) and behind-the-scenes intro details for each interview by yours truly. Again, more details in the coming weeks, but it will be out this year for sure. Huzzah!

Oh yeah, I have new comedy columns on stands now in both 'Re:Com' and 'Amp' magazines, scoop them up and tell a friend.

Thanks as always for reading and hope to see you on the road.
