After a pit stop at M Bar for the monthly Classic Rock Sing-Along (which is exactly what it sounds like: rock karaoke with fun, drunk people crooning along), we hit up Smash Appeal, a fundraising fete for Moheak at the Echoplex Saturday. DJ Paul V. (who programs weekends on the station) gave us the scoop and we've been listening ever since. Created by Indie's best known DJ, TK, the new station features the likes of Darren Revell (Big Sonic Heaven), Dave Navarro (Dark Matter), Keith Morris (Totally Psyched, an all-vinyl psychedelic thrash fest) and Fishbone's Angelo Moore ("The Angelo Show"), plus Kevin Bronson, who presents a sonic companion to his "Buzz Bands" blog, Casper VonDJ (club and bar beatsmith around town), Marko DeSantis (from the band Sugarcult), and Lawrence Gjurgevich, host of long-running dance party Club Underground at the Echo Fridays. Impressive, no?
Appeal wasn't exactly packed Saturday, but V.'s next hap at the 'Plex, Dragstrip 66's "Classless Reunion" 18th Anniversary Bash this Saturday night will surely be quite the opposite. Believe it, bitch.
