This week we feature: Chris Cote! Action sports personality, long-time editor of Transworld Surf, bassist and vocalist for Kut U Up, and editor in chief of Encinitas Magazine. We talk about how Chris taught an entire generation how to party and what it was like to get physically dragged off stage from someone dressed like Mr. T. We cover internet trolls, how Kut U Up started as a dare from some of the Blink 182 guys, his cult movie Riding in Vans with Boys, and talk about things we may have smuggled across countries. We drank sparkling mineral water and plan on having Chris back for a water tasting test to show his skills of discerning between brands.
Reggae singer - songwriter Mike Pinto chose sake bombs! So we did sake bombs! We talk about keeping life on the road fun, we compare psychic visits, and Mike gives his do's and don't before you consider sky diving. Philly represent (sorry Delaware).
What's Up at the Belly Up this week features TJ (Timothy Joseph) of The Palace Ballroom! We talk about TJ's aversion to apple pancakes, the angsty-est time of our lives and his Coming Clean Segment is for real amazing - it involves the hot combo of dysentery and dating. TJ performs his song "Cemetery Bride". We drink Whiskey and Coke.
WOAH! Earl Thomas is the man. We talked about the first song he wrote getting covered by Etta James, his experiences of playing frequently abroad, the joy of solitude and his definition of what the blues is (and is not). We drank Stella and had a really good time.
Don't mess with Nena Anderson! A singer songwriter, honky tonk, blues and Americana chick that suggested we drank whiskey in the mid-afternoon. We tell the truth on what can happen if you drink too much carrot juice, talk about turning fan letters into songs and compare Damian to a giraffe that looks like Prince. We drank Bulleit Rye with Bundaberg Ginger Beer.
