Can Haz ABC DJ -- plus special East Coast Earthquake, Richmond VA set
A really fun show! Started off with a set of bands from my hometown of Richmond, Virginia. Bands dating from 1984 (Death Piggy!) to just a couple years ago (Galusha Grow), with a bonus couple bands from close by: D.C. and Harrisonburg, VA. All to commemorate the biggest earthquake the east coast has felt since the time of the last World War.

After that I did an alphabetical stumble of bands from Adam & the Ants to ZZ Top touring hip hop, Punk, Post-Punk, "Alt-Country" and the latest electronic styles along the way. Uncle Tupelo loves being next to Venetian Snares, I promise!

Finished up with a bit of this and that, including Akufen shaking up an old blues tune, a collaboration between Mark E. Smith of The Fall and Mouse on Mars (Von Südenfed), and some classic dub from Burning Spear.
