So this Saturday is it! The big 8th anniversary bash for BlowUpRadio.com!
When I started BlowUpRadio.com in December of 2000, it was a little idea of a hobby to get me back into my love of music and radio, after becoming jaded to the whole thing after 5 years of working as a part-time DJ at a commercial radio station where I had to play a lot of shitty music.
Little did I know this hobby would turn into such a huge part of my life. Every day I spend several hours locked in my den here listening to music, updated the website, replying to e-mails, and even writing this newsletter.
I look around at my close friends, and pretty much all of them are musicians and people involved with the local music scene that I might never have met had I not started BlowUpRadio.com.
Where as after 5 years at a commerical station I was ready to throw in the towel, heading into year 9 of BlowUpRadio.com I am as excited if not moreso then when I started. Sure, there are times when I take a short break for a few days or weeks to recharge the mental batteries, but I always jump back in with renewed energy and joy of getting the word out about some great music that might otherwise have no outlet.
8 years…BlowUpRadio.com has outlasted a lot of bands, a lot of good bands that I miss having the opportunity to see, but thankfully new good bands keep forming (sometimes with members of those former bands) to take there place.
This Saturday we have 3 great bands playing our anniversary bash at Buddie’s Tavern (277 Johnsons Ln., Parlin (Sayreville), NJ). It’s a free show, and in this economy, that’s a very good thing.
I hope you can all come out, help celebrate, and hear music from:
Nerve Tonic (whose new CD of pukabilly laced rock & roll , is incredible, and you can get a free copy at the show)
Grover Kent (doing their first full live set or Ramones styled punk in over a year!)
Alter Ego (who don’t have a CD yet, and play out more than once a year, but you should come see them anyway because this acoustic trio has a special surprise in store for this show)
So come out down to Buddie’s Tavern this Saturday for the most kick-ass rocking party of the year!
