Bearded Birthday Buddies, Handsome Man Social Club meeting with Scooter James and Dammit Damian!

It’s story time with SCOOTER JAMES! Jimmy Pinhead himself sits down with Damian on the freezing cold patio at Illegal Pete’s in Denver to drink several pitchers of Coors Lite while chatting about the upcoming Pinhead Circus reunion shows with the NOBODYS!

We talk for a little over an hour, that was recorded. We talked about Scooter’s first guitar, becoming a father, tour hi-jinks with the Nobodys, being a mid-level punk rock band in the 90’s and oh so much more. We even find time to talk about Pinhead Circus’s famous former drummer, Brandon Barnes of Rise Against Fame! All this and oh so much more as we try to stay warm on a cold, cold, Friday night at Illegal Pete’s!

Check out Pinhead Circus this weekend with the NOBODYS. January 30th at the Triple Nickel Tavern in Colorado Springs & January 31st at the Hi-Dive in Denver!

This episode features the tracks “Carefree Metal Daze,” from Detailed Instructions for the Self Involved & the Cinema Beer Bellies! This episode ends with a live version of “Detailed Instructions for the Self Involved,” taken from their 2008 reunion show at the Marquis Theater.

NATIVE DAUGHTERs members Justin Hackl, Thomas Chagolla , and Eddie Maestas-Vigil join us for this week’s Mostly Harmless. We also debut “Happy New Year Nurse” from the band’s upcoming EP!

I’ve been fortunate enough to have known Justin Hackl since 2008, when I witnessed Only Thunder open for Hot Water Music on their reunion tour at the Gothic Theater. Justin’s future band mates, Mustangs and Madras would also join in the supporting duties.

While working at The Triple Nickel Tavern in Colorado Springs, and booking Only Thunder, I became fast friends with Justin and the band’s many members. Since their demise, I have kept a close eye on Justin and his many projects, but none as close as his newest project: Native Daughters.

The Denver five-piece is remarkable in that it features two drummers, both front and center of the band. It reminds me of the old Nickelodeon cartoon, DOUG in which he starts a band with two drummers. Only with Native Daughter’s it is not a gimmick. It is a well orchestrated musical entity all on its own. Each member plays a separate part, and becomes a separate organ working to keep the larger entity alive.

That’s not all that makes this band special. We join the band at 3 Kings Tavern in Denver to talk with three of the five pieces members about their early musical obsessions. We also talk to the boys about the influence of the Colorado music scene on their early endeavors, the end of their former band and the beginning of Native Daughters. All of that and More!

Plus we debut a new song, “Happy New Year Nurse,” from their upcoming three song EP!
