Every show starts with the ’70s! We’ll rediscover forgotten rockers, revisit unfairly maligned disco beats and replay power-pop favorites. Next: plenty of new releases, occasional live bands and more. Don’t let the nickname confuse you.

  Wed. 7/29/15 9:19pm ALAN:

yeah been listening to this for a few years now. It all started when I was googling a record I hadn't heard for years, The google sent me to a playlist, so not only did I listen to the record, but the rest of that playlist. The rtest is history.

yeah I need to revisit that whole Vex Ruffin album I think.
Avatar    Wed. 7/29/15 9:20pm JakeGould:

@Loretta: Don’t know about anybody else, but in my case it’s really hot in NYC and it’s that time of the summer where I am aware that in a few months it will be darker at night. Meaning I like to be out around sunset even if it’s hot because I will miss these days come October.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/29/15 9:21pm efd:

thanks jon, hi fleep & common! Haven't heard the new New Order, Alan, will check it out.

Curious what record you were googling that led you here!

The record was, Gypsy Girl by Cruella de Ville. LOVE to hear it again hint hint

flushing out the Curve fans, I see!

Alan, now I don't even remember that song off the top of my head! I'll have to go back and check it out.

New Order have a new album coming out in September.

@fleep: I like tracking numbers. Remember when the USPS didn’t call them “Tracking” but instead they called them “Delivery Confirmation” numbers? Man I feel old!

@?: This looks like a good place for a Stick–Up®!

Dive bars like Hank's are vanishing here as gentrification accelerates in Hollywood and DTLA. Hang onto that place, from the photos, it's a gem in the rough.

Mars Williams played something that looked like a floor lamp when I saw them. Can't remember what he called it. It was rather squonky and impressive.

And I'm pretty sure Wimps need to be seen by me.

Avatar    Wed. 7/29/15 10:40pm JakeGould:

@Ike: I knew you would show up late and say that and with the head of the dead ram and the whole thing. Also the Bahn Mi place on 8th Avenue near 64th Street is closed. Stinks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/29/15 10:43pm Stevel:

Thanks ALAN.

don't know if it was satan or the social media airhorn, but i totally jumped all over that action... plus, beersies!

thanks chris! I'll have to chalk it up to the mighty social media airhorn!
  Wed. 7/29/15 10:52pm Kat in Chicago:

Hi funkateers. I like this devil music
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/29/15 10:54pm Ike & Ram:

Which one is that, @Jake? Phos and Banhmi Inc.? If so, what I heard wasn't too promising anyway. Definitely hike up to 43rd & 8th for great banh mi at Ba Xuyen, but remember it closes early (6:30 every day). I haven't tried Thanh Da yet, have you?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/29/15 10:56pm efd:

hey Kat, welcome! And belated greets Ike, Marcel and Stevel!

I hear a certain AC/DC influence.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/29/15 11:01pm efd:

I don't disagree, UM!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/29/15 11:01pm Stevel:

chris:"caf, caf...thanks."

Loving Louis XIV. yes to the AC/DC. Digging the lyrics. The whole thing, actually.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/29/15 11:12pm Stevel:

So dedicated to perform "ticket" live every week. Also a bit OCD, but hey.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/29/15 11:13pm Uncle Michael:

Heading for the embrace of Morpheus. I'll be listening in the dark. 6:00 AM comes early.

Great stuff, Evan. Night all.
  Wed. 7/29/15 11:15pm ALAN:

Sadly can't win tickets as am in London.
Avatar    Wed. 7/29/15 11:17pm JakeGould:

@Ike: Yeah, “Phos and Banhmi Inc.” is very clearly in the process of closing. I tried “Thanh Da” and the Bahn Mi was okay, but honestly it seems like one of those places that unwrittenly is not for non-locals; aka white guys like me. I had a few tiny cure Chinese kids looking and pointing at me in the window when I visited. I know how animals in a zoo feel.
Avatar    Wed. 7/29/15 11:20pm fleep:

Isn't a Bahn Mi a sandwich (asked the rube)? What makes one better than another?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/29/15 11:21pm chris:

learn some chinese/vietnamese/french and pone those sandwich zealots, Jake
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/29/15 11:21pm Stevel:

Jake: Good for the soul to be on the other side of the glass, at least occasionally. I've photographed an ever-growing group of Burmese over the past 15 years. Strange. frustrating and refreshing to be in a room for an hour and not understand a word of the conversation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/29/15 11:21pm chris:

note: i would have written pwn, but i'm not sure who actually uses that these days...
  Wed. 7/29/15 11:24pm ALAN:

Right all, have to go and do some work, trains do not send themselves. Good night, see you all tomorrow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/29/15 11:25pm efd:

thanks for tuning in, Alan!

Avatar Wed. 7/29/15 11:28pm Andrew S:

that nudity song was a scorcher, new to my ears
Avatar    Wed. 7/29/15 11:29pm JakeGould:

@Stevel: Kind of agree. The staff of the place was very nice, though. Would recommend going there at least once. But FWIW, as a child of immigrants I’ve felt that “What are you doing here?” gaze in dozens of places for dozens of reasons. Just not while eating a sandwich.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/29/15 11:34pm efd:

@Andrew S mine too, at least as of earlier tonight!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/29/15 11:36pm Ike:

That's odd. Thanh Da doesn't sound as welcoming as Ba Xuyen. I've seen folks of many different colors at Ba Xuyen and nobody stares at anybody. Those particular cute little kids were probably just assholes. Or maybe they themselves were new immigrants.
  Wed. 7/29/15 11:38pm Mido:

@Adrew S @efd yeah thx for that nudity track
Avatar    Wed. 7/29/15 11:41pm JakeGould:

@Ike: Perhaps a misunderstanding but will be honest… The Bahn Mi was Bahn Meh. I find the ones at Lotus in Park Slope and Hanco’s in Boerum Hill to cost about the same and be tons better.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/29/15 11:42pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...ya ever ? log onto a playlist & see tracks you've clicky☆ed already & stop & think - that's really a tiny bit amazing...
Avatar    Wed. 7/29/15 11:42pm chris_in_space:

@efd, just got home from Jays vs Pirates. Really happy to have Tulowitzki on my team and not the Yankees. A HR and 3 steaks in his debut...
Avatar    Wed. 7/29/15 11:44pm JakeGould:

@Ike: FWIW, I just don’t find any of the places in Sunset Park near my neck of the woods to be that friendly in general to non-Chinese. Maybe it’s different in the 40s and 50s street-wise since it’s slightly more gentrified and they have to adapt, but at my side the places seem cool to indifferent to non-locals of all kinds… Except for “Phos and Banhmi Inc.” which was pretty friendly and a tad more open/modern.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/29/15 11:47pm chris:

do you find banh mi to be more of a Chinese owned thing in NYC? its Korean's owning Japanese places here in the bay area... cuz, when i think of banh mi, i think of Vietnamese.
  Wed. 7/29/15 11:47pm Ignore Function:

Nudity from Olympia, WA?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/29/15 11:48pm efd:

I believe so, Ignore Function! Something on the LP made me think they were from the NW.
Avatar Wed. 7/29/15 11:51pm Alex of Chicago:

Their Facebook page says Olympia.
Avatar Wed. 7/29/15 11:52pm Alex of Chicago:

And I've been thinking of PNW cities to move to. Olympia just stepped up a spot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/29/15 11:52pm efd:

oh that could be what I saw, I was on there earlier too
  Wed. 7/29/15 11:52pm Ignore Function:

If so I saw them years ago. I thought they were long gone. Chris from Dub Narcotic was in the band. They were great.
Avatar    Wed. 7/29/15 11:54pm JakeGould:

@chris: Yeah… Every Bahn Mi place in NYC seems to be Chinese owned. There’s one really nice Thai place in Bushwick that does a great Bahn Mi… But of course, Thai…
