Chicken from Dead to Me visits the set to talk music, money-raising and recovery with Joe and Seattle band, Barcelona, before performing “Visiting Day,” acoustic.
We are also joined by stand-up lightning rod, Brody Stevens. Brody let’s us all know why he is in such good shape and what makes him so unafraid to do shows in the dangerous hours of the night.
Dead To Me is a punk rock band from San Francisco, CA and are currently signed to Fat Wreck Chords, owned by Fat Mike of NOFX. They released “Moscow Penne Ante” in October of 2011,” and are about to go on a tour of Europe for the summer.
Brody Stevens is referred to as “a comic’s comic.” He is from The San Fernando Valley, has been in films such as The Hangover and Due Date, and performs regularly in Los Angeles.
