Oh, the shitshow of drunkenness and technical difficulties that was this show. DJ Ashtray and I read fun "poems" about our imaginary responses to sidewalk sexism. Hers were good/literary, mine were, uh, "experimental," or more accurately: booze-fueled, awkward slipshod collections of words. I tried to pretend I know how to pronounce words in the following languages: Spanish, French, and German.

Background noises for our spoken word were provided by the always-lovely Throbbing Gristle (songs from Nothing Short of a Total War). Equipment was broken which led to it being stupidly loud during my last piece. I guess I dedicated a song to Bono? Despite the title of the song, I'm like 80% sure he and I never had sex. WHO KNOWS FOR REAL THOUGH. I sang, "Carry On My Wayward Son." Everything else is basically inaudible wasted babble, it's pretty cool.

Female-fronted punk + post-punk: weird, aggressive, and dark music all made by women

In this installment of RAAB Radio, DJ Ashtray and Erin Eyesore (semi-new but not really new DJ name to connote Erin / La Lengua's "face for radio") dedicate a small set to Erin's sister from Berlin, wonder about Satanist Christmas in SF, and discuss Henry Rollins' attitudes towards women. We conclude that Erin could never interest Rollins, as she consumes booze, cigarettes, and is definitely mean. Sweet-as-pie, straightedge-as-pie Ash, however, is the perfect candidate to be his lady. "If she's gay... I can work with that."

This show started as a fantastic idea (“Hey, let’s invite a bunch of our friends and fellow DJs to hang out in the studio, dance, drink, and bring their own records to play.”) It quickly devolved into an obnoxious shitshow of wastedness.
