On today’s episode of Cold Ones & Rolled Ones with Ami Lawless, we are stoked to invite y’all to tune in for punx rawk icon/bad ass guitarist HEWHOCANNOTBENAMED (of THE DWARVES). HEWHO, will be performing a rare acoustic performance live in the Radio Valencia studios tonight with his band, this is not to be missed! HEWHO has a brand spanking new album out called LOVE/HATE, we debuted some tracks off it on last weeks show to critical acclaim from listeners near and far. Tonight’s show will be chock full of surprises, HEWHO is one of those larger than life punx, no telling what will fall out of his mouth between songs. We’ll also play some tracks from LOVE/HATE and will be chatting about all things HEWHOCANNOTBENAMED…anyone remember him and THE DWARVES hoax regarding his death back in 1993? That hoax led to THE DWARVES being dropped by their label Sub-Pop Records while landing them in the Punx Rawk Hall of Fame for thumbing their noses at one of “thee” biggest labels to be on at that time; fucking classic. We here at Radio Valencia woud like to sincerely thank HEWHOCANNOTBENAMED for playing our upcoming Radio Valencia Aggressive Acoustic Benefit at 518 Valencia on June 15th. As if this show wasn’t busting with enough goodness as is, we will also be giving away a couple sets of tickets to the much anticipated BOBBY JOE EBOLA & the CHILDREN MacNUGGITS show at Great American Music Hall and also a couple sets of tickets to the SUBHUMANS and TOTAL CHAOS show coming up at The Oakland Metro. Be sure to listen for your chance to win some tickets and sooth your quiet ears with some punx rawk goodness! Tune in for the music/stay for the chaos! You’ve been warned!

On this episode of Coldies with Ami Lawless; it’s that time of year again! Our good buddie and local punx icon John The Baker is throwing SKATE TIL YOU DIE 2013 an ANNUAL BENEFIT SKATE FROM RICHMOND TO SAN JOSE OVER THE COARSE OF 3 DAYS. This year the skaters will be raising awareness about the indigenous people of Hawaii and their struggle for independence and raising money for the Music Cares Foundation. Skate Til You die is a skate a thon where skaters get people to make donation pledges based on how many miles a skater skates. For example if someone pledges .10 cents a mile and the skater skates the whole 66 miles then the person owes $6.66. Skaters can collect the money after the event or can get one time donations and bring donations at the start of the event. The skater that raises the most money will win the Grand Prize.
On today’s Cold Ones some of the bands & skaters that will be performing & skating at this years Skate Til You Die will be coming in to the Radio Valencia studios and chatting about why they decided to get involved. The guests on today show will be members of FUCKTARD, LAS MALAS PULGAS & Mykee Ramen of BLACK MARKET PROPHETS (we’re hoping he brings his acoustic guitar in and plays us s little ditty or two). We are also expecting a call in from John The Baker himself.
Also later in the show local street artist/slap artist/apparel & deck designer plus all around good guy Chris Micro will be coming in and giving out the secret location of his exhibit slated for this Saturday across the bridge in Oaklandia. We will of course be chatting about his #trashlife concept. Chris Micro has built a die-hard cult fallowing with his take on low brow street art. Be sure to check out his works at chrismicro.com and be sure to tune into Cold Ones for the music but stay for the chaos.

Ahoy dear listeners! On tonight’s fine episode of Cold Ones & Rolled Ones with Ami Lawless (AKA Thee only radio show that matters), guests will be skater/musicians Brandon Bailey and Jared Power; who are two of the extreme bad ass skaters that will be participating in Skate Til U Die. For those unfamiliar, Skate Til U Die is an epic skate-a-thon that is in its 5th year of existence here in the Bay Area. The brain child, so to speak of punk icon John The Baker (last week’s guest on Cold Ones) and his buddy (and at the time housemate) Jared Power. About 6 years ago these two fine fellas had the idea to skateboard from Richmond CA down to San Jose CA in order to hang out with their homies who had always been coming up to Richmond to hang out. It took them 19 hours from beginning until they reached their destination. A little beaten down and weary, they dusted themselves off, patted themselves on the back and shared their experience with friends all over the Bay Area. We were all blown away at the physical feat these two endured in order to hang out with their South Bay homies. Now this is one extreme expression of true friendship! The following year the dynamic duo decided it was time to do it again; but this time invite more folks to participate and raise some money for charity. This is how Skate Til U Die was born…now its five years later and going strong as ever. The other intriguing part to this skate-a-thon is that our boys John and Jared incorporated their other love; punk-fucking-rock into the equation. Skate Til U Die takes place over 3 days and at the end of each day of skating punk bands play and the party ensues. This is every teenage punk rawkers dream weekend = skating ones flesh off topped off with some of the Bay Area’s finest punk bands tearing down the house. Tune in for a chat with two dudes that have truly given their blood, sweat and tears to Skate Til U Die. Both Brandon and Jared have been integral elements in each Skate Til U Die and this year is no different, both these guys will be playing each night with their respective bands after hours of skating. Something that should not be missed.
