It’s not that Hanabi has the post holiday blues or anything, it’s that he is thrilled that another Christmas is in the books. Usually, we could talk about what to do with all the after Christmas food, but not this year. Instead we checked out a very weird situation going on down at the former Fizzary space. This drama is so good it doesn’t matter if you’re local or not. The Fizzary until recently, was a vintage style soda shop that carried hundreds of varieties of soda from around the world and from craft-styled makers. Anyway, the people that are subleasing the space have apparently turned it into a not-so-underground gambling club and illegal bar. Apparently it’s be so shady that the landlord has taken to extreme measures to notify the police and alcohol commission, and so far no one seems to care. Hanabi also loves movies. His favorite place to catch a movie just so happens to be the Sundance Kabuki theater over in Japantown. This place is rad. There super comfy couch-like chairs with tables attached and you can order real food and drink beer, wine and cocktails as well while watching a flick. After watching a cool flick and getting his swerve on, Hanabi likes to maintain his buzz as one of his favorite locals, which happens to havean amazing cocktail program, as well as a cool bartender who is the same age as Hanabi and has lots of cool late 80’s and early 90’s tales to tell. The bar is called Holy Water and the drink of choice is the bourbon buck, but the painkiller has the better name and the better kind of ice.

Some things to prepare for if you get invited to one of these events. First, the ceremony is long. In this case it was shaved down to a mere hour, instead of the more usual four hours. Secondly, it’s an explosion of color. From the bride and groom in their deep scarlet and gold to the guests resplendent in every other color you could imagine. Then there’s the dancing, and lots of it. It’s like a Bollywood production on the dace floor. Lastly, and maybe most importantly there is food, and lots of it. First there was an appetizer course with a chaat, which you can kind of think of as an Indian tapa, that consisted of an Idli, which is a little cake/ dumpling made from rice flour that was smashed and covered in a rich yogurt and a spicy chutney.
I’ve had no less than two different documenting their current trips to Japan this week. Needless to say, Hanabi is now jealous and feeling quite spiteful towards them rather than celebrating their good times. Japan is a super fun time and even though Hanabi has been, it’s very upsetting when other people go there an rub it in that Hanabi wasn’t invited. So this week’s playlist represents all the spitefulness, envy and sadness, Japanese-style, that we could think of. Just kidding, although Japan is fun, we’re happy for them.

Donovan Wolfington is apparently a person. He’s out there somewhere, but that’s a story for another day… This is about the band from New Orleans who borrowed his name: four guys making poppy punk rock, with some heavy parts and some happy parts and some sad parts. They didn’t name their album How to Treat the Ones You Love by happenstance. It serves as an exploration of their own lives’ difficulties and lessons, and an honest, literate way to attempt to be a slightly less terrible person in a not-always-so-great world.

Hanabi decided to get with the holiday spirit and made some Latkes. Though not a tradition in the Hanabi house growing up, it’s definitely one worth incorporating. Who doesn’t like potatoes, especially lightly fried potatoes. Hanabi also went in very wide arc to make a recipe for a drink that resembles a very holiday drink that is well known to parents and grandparents of a certain age, but all the millennials out there will know it as butter beer. Speaking of beer. Hanabi decided to try making beer can chicken. In the oven. What?

It’s sad when a 93 year old restaurant Roosevelt Tamale Parlor, that has been something of a neighborhood staple closes it’s doors for good. It’s even more sad when they list the reason for closure as high labor costs. The current minimum wage in San Francisco is $12.25, and that is barely enough to afford rent in the city. Definitely a conundrum. On a brighter note, my love of breakfast has been met by a wonderful Instagram account called Symmetry Breakfast. It’s basically everything. Hanabi, is becoming something of a Japanese cuisine master and he’s flaunting it with his sake shioyaki and taking it even further with his scallion pancakes.

Another one in the books! The Thanksgiving books that is. We decided to give you a little taste of the after party with an awesome, and very British way of getting rid of all those left over mashed potatoes and veggies, called bubble and squeak. We also talked about how awesome Japanese milk bread is and how well it pairs with left over turkey and some onion jam to make the best turkey sandwich ever.

Narc Twain is an indie rock band based in New York City and fronted by Jukebox The Ghost’s Tommy Siegel.

The Alt-Country Hour is packed full of great tunes for your Sunday!
Hanabi is all about Thanksgiving. It’s an opportunity to put on a great spread. Although the menu may be similar, a Thanksgiving feast is very specific to an individual family and most of us have eaten the same Thanksgiving dinner, as prepared by family members as long as we can remember, and we still crave those same dishes, prepared the exact same way every time. There’s nothing wrong with that. But, occasionally, we may not be able to sit down with our families and we have to go it alone. Hanabi finds himself in that boat this year. SO, he’s chosen to host his own orphans Thanksgiving dinner. Yes, there will be turkey. But, instead of a whole bird he’s going for a porchetta turkey breast. What the hell is that you ask? Porchetta is of course a pork roast that is stuffed with mixture or herbs, garlic and lemon zest. Basically it delicious. Hanabi us also making a brussels sprout gratin loaded with gruyere cheese. Hanabi is also making some macarons because why the hell not?
Made Of Oak, Dungen, Beach Slang, Mark McGuire and so much more on DJ Drew’s Sunday show on BTR

ALTO 45 – It’s good to have the Alto 45 boys back in Old School Studios. Even if there’s been a nine year gap between visits. It seems like it was only yesterday. Or last month. OK, it seems like it was about five years ago. Definitely not nine. I was worried that we wouldn’t even recognise each other. Turns out, none of us have really changed, which is reassuring.

Astronauts, etc. is the primary musical outlet for Oakland, California’s Anthony Ferraro. With a background in classical music, Ferraro crafted the project’s initial recordings at home in his bedroom before fleshing them out with a solid stable of jazz players. Things took a decidedly indie turn when he wound up as a touring member of the band Toro Y Moi, whose chilled-out funk touches seem to have rubbed off a bit on Astronauts, etc.’s own psych-tinged pop. The group stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO to play some tunes and chat a bit about the band.

Hanabi has been on a delicious New Orleans bender, and that train is still rolling. As Hanabi gets set to head out to New Orleans, he decided that since it’s going to be a calorie bust, he might as well get into some salad. Healthy, green salad. There are good salads, and there are bad salads. Hanabi wants you to eat more good salads. By the way, the best salad is the salad Nicoise. Yes, it’s better than a Cobb salad, and is slightly better than a Caesar salad. Of note, Hanabi means the actual Caesar salad made the proper way with raw yolks table-side, and not that ridiculous cream based dressing that passes for Caesar dressing. Oh, and it has to have the anchovies too. Since we’re talking Salad, Hanabi had a Chef’s salad at the Standard in New Orleans. The Chef’s salad is pretty good, still not up to a Nicoise though. Nothing goers better with a salad than a Sazerac. Remember that.

ROBYN ASTRID – I found out about Robyn’s music via local legend Richard Shashamane’s excellent http://norwichblog.com/, on which he puts up photos and videos from the 4-5 local gigs that he goes to every night of the week here in Norwich. I often rely on his site for informing me about new local bands and artists that I don’t yet know about, and Robyn was one of them. Thanks Richard, and thanks Robyn! And don’t forget Dan on trumpet!

Welcome to a very special Halloween broadcast of the Folk Wave!
Happy Halloween!!! I’ve put together a very spooky Halloween show for you today. If you want the type of sexy costume Halloween, then this show is not for you. If you want a creepy, spooky, are spirits real kind of Halloween, then you’re definitely going to want to put this on on your party. We’ve got songs like Killr Punx, Scary Demons, Blood Runs, and the very Halloween Chicken Shit. So let’s get spooky, today on BTR!
Put on your dancing shoes and let’s get your weekend started.
Zen Anton is a songwriter who cuts straight to the marrow. His music carries an honesty that shrugs in the face of vulnerability, bearing all for the listener–who might struggle to disentangle the bones from guitar strings. It’s clear that this form of storytelling is a part of him, and that there is nothing else he would rather choose.
T’was the day before Halloween, LOL!! But um yeah it is. Another Friday. Scary Friday, Halloween eve. The day before the day. You know, celebration before the celebration. Preparation, creatation <—–not a word. LOL. Yeah like i said. Reggaeton time on BTR. So here's a Halloween Latin Hiphop mix to get your early start. You can practice dancing in your costume in the mirror. Or blast it at your company's party because it's the day before Halloween. And your not going to party at work on a saturday. That's why fridays are so important. New joints. Move ya body. I hope you can breathe in costume too. Let's not get hurt. Pump the mix. Enjoy!!! Bazarro in the mix. Come on Michael Myers, you can dance too!!
It’s the ROCK SHOW! And you know it is… New Joanna Newsom (!!), Pure Bathing Culture, Mantles, and, like, SO much other good ones. It’s fun, it rocks, but it won’t upset you! It’s just right!
Wet Nurse is a garage pop band from Orlando, Florida. Their music lands in the fast/short/catchy realm, and takes things even further with the secret weapon of Nina and Susana Chaplin’s dual lead vocals. You really can’t do better than sibling harmonies — the Chaplins even remind us a bit of the Deal sisters, with their pleasing slight-raspiness. Musically, the band draws on surf, punk, and pop, all wrapped up with a nod to the 90s alt-rock that makes it feel just right. They stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO to rip it up and chat with guest host Travis Harrison. So It Goes by Wet Nurse is available now.

This week Hanabi gives us the dirt on his trip to New Orleans. Let’s get Cafe Du Monde right out of the way. It’s truly an amazing place in which $5 gets you instant gratification. A chicory coffee and plate of fresh beignets is really all you need. Open 24 hours too! As Hanabi is wont to do, he visited an Izakaya for a fresh take on octopus. It took him awhile to eat it but it was worth it. He went to the famed Lafitte’s Blacksmith and saw a cop on horseback stroll up and order a drink. Speaking of drinks, he sampled LA 31’s Biere Noir. He stuck around the French Quarter, but that place is loaded with places to eat and drink and just see weird things in general. Oh, Hanabi will be there over halloween and Day of the Dead so there will be more to report.

BALD WIFE – I saw this band play a storming set to a packed crowd at The Playhouse Bar in Norwich recently, and simply had to book them for a session. And here it is. BIG, bangy drums, played by a big, bangy drummer, sludgy guitar played through a bass amp, and growly disgruntled vocals. What’s not to like?

Mal Blum is a New York-based musician who crafts excellent, revealing narrative-driven pop songs that tend to be endearingly sentimental. There’s punk, anti-folk, and folk vibes in every word, whether the performance is solo or with a full band. In whichever form, Mal Blum (the person or band) is a special joy to be around and listen to — not to mention, usually pretty hilarious. They brought the full band experience to Serious Business Music for this episode of BTR Live Studio.

An entire edition of “The Jazz Hole” about – and with – the rising star of the Latin Jazz scene, the charming Gregorio Uribe, leader of the Gregorio Uribe Big Band.

Star guests include multiple Grammy Award-winner Ruben Blades.
Hanabi likes to wade knee deep in controversy and nothing seems to stir up culinary controversy right now like 16-year old chef Flynn McGarry. If you’re not too familiar with him, he’s a young kid trying to operate in a grizzled, often ego-centric 30-something’s world, and seemingly unapologetically. Say what you will about earning your stripes through blood, sweat and tears as the idiom goes, but sometimes there’s someone half your age, who for no reason even they can explain, can just do it better than you without even trying. But, if I’m Japanese ramen chef Shouichi Fujimaki who charges $120 a bowl for his ramen, I’m probably not going to be too worried yet by Hanabi’s foray into cooking up his own shio ramen. from scratch. Okay, I’d be a little worried. He even throws down a little gyoza in soup to show off a bit. In keeping with a little Japanese theme, Insane Dane visited New York institution Hatsuhanna for a really well presented sashimi bento-box called The Box of Dreams. he also visits Swine for a little after-work imbibing.

Get ready for some alt-country tunes on BTR this Sunday!
Hanabi has been in a crazy pasta and dumplings mood lately. After thinking about how awesome Julia Child’s kitchen exhibit at the Smithsonian is, I decided to make an old favorite recipe of hers called Orecchiette con con Broccoli di Rape, or basically little ear pasta with broccoli rabe. It’s a simple dish, but it’s an amazing one-pot style dish that’s perfect for some Euro-style mid-week eating. Hanabi also said “I’m severely lacking in dumplings this week” and headed out to a favorite hole in the wall Chinese dumpling spot called Kingdom of Dumplings where their xiaolongbao rules over all other dumpling kingdoms. Not to be outdone Hanabi made some dim sum called beef cakes and karaage which is a great combo if I do say so myself. Don’t sleep on Destihl Brewery and their Rye Wine Ale either. Insane Dane is all about that pear nectar margarita because he’s not letting go of summer at Dish + Drink.

This week, Jason & Gemma give you a “Secret Special”. The idea being, that they don’t disclose any of the song titles or artistes to you, the listener. Unfortunately, the idea is foiled by being able to read the titles below, on your very screen. Oh well, it’s the thought that counts.
The Glazzies are the duo of Peter Landi and Dave Horn, based out of Sag Harbor, New York. With a heavy nod to fuzzy ’90s alt rock, their songs touch on grunge, psychedelic, and punk. Their love of the heavy, hooky style is so deep that they even had Dinosaur, Jr. drummer Murph play on their EP. The guys came by Serious Business in DUMBO to rock out and chat with Maia.
90-minutes of music for your Tuesday. Join in for some great tunes alongside your host, DJ Emily!
Fall has already been sending unmistakable greetings to Berlin with first foliage and real cool breezes – but some sweet electronic tracks will still be blowing your way. Music by St Germain , Booka Shade, Solomun and Harry Wolfman and Funkadelic Soul Clap is in the mix, as well as some nicely altered Chemical Brothers tunes.
Today we’re going in! I have a lot of music that I’ve share over the years so today is a great day to remind those who forgot and to educate the ones that don’t know. I’m digging in my digital crates. Turn this up a couple of notches. Why not? Follow us @Breakthruradio for all of the latest news and programming.

It’s fall week here at BTR, and along with autumn comes football. And by football I mean real, grid-iron football, not that soccer stuff that ends in a tie and people think that’s okay. So, Hanabi headed down to Santa Clara in the heart of Silicon Valley to check out the Minnesota Vikings taking on the San Francisco 49ers. The game was sloppy, but the food choices had some ups and downs as well. Check out the show to get all the dirt on the eats at Levi’s Stadium. Hanabi got lazy this week. You know you’re lazy when have sushi delivered. This is something you should never, ever do. Sushi shouldn’t even be available for delivery. If you want sushi, get up and go get it, freshly made in front of you. Otherwise order a pizza, which is perfect for delivery. Listen to Hanabi talk about the mistake he made in having Sushi Bella delivered. Insane Dane apparently wants to know more about Pumpkin Spice Lattes so he checked into it in a riveting piece for Dish + Drink. He also made some Steak Salad for you, and checked out Little Town Social so you don’t have to. Oh, and we’re super excited to play the new Battles album!
Don’t hate, but we may have snuck a Taiwanese band in this week. We occasionally like to keep people on their toes and guessing. Sometimes we get crazy and throw a K-Pop, or HK-Pop band in just for fun. Anyway, this week we thought you deserved some tracks from bands like Sour, also more from Kyoka and the cleverly named Young Juvenile Youth.
The Sunday Show with DJ Drew on BTR

BTR can take care of one of those three things (the sweater and the weather are out of our hands). But we do promise great music. So make sure to check out the show, and after, head on over to Facebook to give us a like!

Well we hit the gas, pedal to the metal and keep it moving. Get ya passport out. Some countries you need a shot so you won’t get sick..Travel with us , once again around the world for good music..Let’s go!!
It’’s been hot in the city. Ridiculously hot. I live in this city to avoid the heat other cites get. Well, that and the food of course. Anyway, when the mercury gets to 90 in San Francisco which is just insane to even imagine if you’ve ever spent more than an hour here during the summer, I always seek something a bit colder than the outside air temperature. Ramen is right out so I move onto something in the dessert spectrum which some people may not know to much about. Of course I’m talking about ice cream. Like everything else here we have peeps who make it right. Bi-Rite is doing it right, as evidenced by the long lines they attract. Humphrey Slocombe is so good someone started a parody twitter account. But let’s not dawdle on those two ice cream giants. Instead, let’s get Taiwanese on it. More specifically, due huabing or shaved snow if you don’t want to butcher the name. This stuff is amazing, and weird rolled into onw. Like sweet green beans on your ice cream, then shaved snow is for you. Hanabi also went to check out some cajun cooking, specifically frog legs at Roux. He also has a little recipe for you too for some quick ginger ground pork and cabbage too. Kale and apricots? Ask Insane Dane about that one. More specifically the kale apricot smoothie.

Lisa Alma is a producer, vocalist, and visual artist from Copenhagen, Denmark. Her synth-heavy, downtempo pop music, often accompanied by her own striking video work, tends toward introspection and melancholy, making it perhaps better suited for soundtracks than dance floors.
