Johnette Napolitano on Cold ones with Ami Lawless today June 27th

June 27, 2pm

On today’s episode of Cold Ones & Rolled Ones with Ami Lawless, Ami’s guest is singer, songwriter, bass player, author, poet, artist & horse whisperer; Johnette Napolitano. We are extremely honored and excited to have Johnette visit us for a second time on Cold Ones & Rolled Ones.

Johnette is one of those truly exquisite and engaging artists who take their passion for their art one step further than what would seem humanly possible. As front person for seminal alt-rawkers CONCRETE BLONDE, Johnette carved out a massive space in music history with seminal albums like their 1986 self-titled Concrete Blonde, 1989’s Free, 1990’s Bloodletting (that included the international hit Joey), Walking in London in 1992, 1993’s Mexican Moon and after taking some years off, 2002’s Group Therapy and Mojave in 2004. All of these albums were not only critically acclaimed in their own right but also attracted a multitude of die-hard CONCRETE BLONDE fans on a worldwide scale.

In their heyday CONCRETE BLONDE became quite the touring juggernaut always taking time for the fans after the shows. This only helped to create more fanatical CONCRETE BLONDE fans.

During this time period Johnette’s uniquely deep and soulful voice delivered personal and introspective lyrics that were sometimes just as vulnerable as the subject matter; which in turn helped many women looking for a strong voice realize they were not alone in their plight of fucked up relationships, good times and bad times, dreams, travel and beliefs. This is just one reason Johnette Napolitano has a massive female audience at each live performance. Johnette’s music has been a part of many films and television shows, including; The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, Point Break, Pump Up the Volume, The Sopranos, The Shield and Beverly Hills 90210.

There’s a lot more than can be said about this amazing women, best to tune in today 6:00-8:00pm for this memorable chat. We would like y’all to know that  Johnette is performing her solo act at The Chapel  (777 Valencia St) here in San Francisco this Sunday June 30th. What a great way to spend PRIDE!

Victor Garcia of ENDLESS DEMISE on Cold Ones Thurs October 4th

October 4, 4pm

On tonight’s episode of Cold Ones & Rolled Ones with Ami Lawless, my guest will be bad ass front man Victor Garcia of L.A.’s own ENDLESS DEMISE and formerly EXCRUCIATING TERROR. ENDLESS DEMISE is bringing their brand of grind-fucking-core to the Bay Area this weekend, so be sure to check them out when they invade. Victor has been doing time in underground bands for many years and is a true veteran of the D.I.Y. music community. It will be interesting to hear his comments on current grind and all things ENDLESS DEMISE. We will be spinning some offerings from ENDLESS DEMISE as well as EXCRUCIATING TERROR. And of course count on me playing the usual hardcore/punk/metal as well as whatever else strikes my fancy…heads up for a brand new NEUROSIS track as well.
