This episode covers February 9 through February 23, 2017 and features an interview with Carl Creighton. Carl’s band, Howth, released an album called Trashy Milky Nothing Town (it’s about ninja turtles) in 2015 and will be performing the album in full to accompany a full album-length music video he recently produced, that features many familiar faces from the local music scene. We also discuss politics, Howth’s next album (about the man behind the Heimlich Maneuver), and more. Also in the episode is music by Black Marble, Old Monk, The Rizzos, Katie Von Schleicher, and Grim Streaker, as well as a new focus on benefit shows — including Thursdays For The Cause at Our Wicked Lady.
