A Season in Hell
Hell's Kitchen Radio #495: Fun For The Whole Freaky Family
What a treat to host local guitarist, singer, songwriter, and all around good guy, Ralph Spight on Monday night. Ralph is known mostly through his years leading Bay Area Hardcore Punk band Victims Family, along with bassist Larry Boothroyd. Tonight he was in talking up his side project, which could honestly be a solid lead project for any other respectable artist, The Freak Accident, who are playing at Bottom of the Hill Saturday night, along with Smokers and The Young Barons.

Ralph has played with or toured with all of the legendary punk bands throughout the years, and he quite a few fine stories to share during the show. He is also the lead guitarist for Jello Biafra's Guantanamo School of Medicine.

We talk about the upcoming show, touring, recording, playing guitar, layering instruments, and surviving in today's musical soup.

Ralph's songwriting is second to none and I know you're going to dig this.

Come on down to the Bottom of the Hill this Saturday, November 17th for this all ages show. Doors at 7:30, show at 8:30. Bring the kids!

I'm gearing up for my 12th annual Annual Annual, where I choose one year to focus two hours on. I've got my ears on three years right now, so you'll have to tune in Monday, November 28th, 8-10PM PST to check it out.

Enjoy and please share.
