Stay punk Stay grind and F*#@ Scion! What local promoter not only created this motto but actually lives it? Why Oakland’s own Gregg DeadFace of course! DeadFace has created a massively essential Fest that has become well known and much anticipated by punx, metal heads and grinders worldwide. This year’s DeadFest is being held once again at the Oakland Metro Opera House and is chock full of some of the most respected underground bands that are currently active. Rhode Island stalwarts DROPDEAD will be headlining both nights, Friday August 16th and Saturday August 17th; respectively doing two completely different sets each night! Both bills each night are stacked with crucial bands like; GRAVES AT SEA, TURBOKRIEG (from Texas), TRANSIENT (from PDX), D.I.S. (from L.A.), LOLITA BLACK (from RI), NIGHT NURSE (from PDX),COMPLETED EXPOSITION (from Japan) and a plethora of others, including some of the Bay Area’s best up and comers like DERAS KRIEG, CRYPT KEEPER, PANCAKE LIZARD, YOUR ENEMY, BRAINOIL and NOOTHGRUSH. This Fest has become well respected and a must for extreme music lovers and we here at Radio Valencia are honored to have several of the band members on for interviews this evening on Cold Ones & Rolled Ones with Ami LawLess.

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!
HEWHOCANNOTBENAMED slaying the masses!

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.

A GHOUL is a folkloric monster associated with graveyards and consuming human flesh and playing bone-snapping splatterthrash, often classified as but not necessarily undead.
If you are perpexed by this post;
Ghoul is playing a secret show some time very soon in the Bay Area. A riddle will be released every few days that will give you a clue as to where and when. It is up to YOU to use your addled brain to follow the clues. YOUR FIRST CLUE is:
In Creepsylvania things are hidden
Under piles of bones and midden
But stranger still, I can relate
Is under fig leaves hides a date
I think the last riddle may have been a little too abstruse for some of you lovelies out there, so here’s another shot at figuring out the date of the secret show!
A spider’s home
A blind man’s dream
In page and chapter
Hides the key
Mr. Fang here. I’ve made a new riddle telling you WHERE the secret show is.
An Old French sword and a tiny train

A ruined meal in a hill of riches
This show will make you shit your britches
