Paid in brains!


Welcome to the latest episode of Wednesdays With Andrew, your weekly overdose of punk (and punkish!) rock.

Now, because we're sooooo close to St. Paddy's Day, I have decided to feature....hahah no just kidding, go away, I'm not doing a Dropkick Murphys only playlist or something stupid like that. Just a normal Wednesday here, folks.

This week's playlist is pretty much the sonic equivalent of a kick in the nuts. We have some heavy hitting tunes from great bands like Direct Hit!, Union 13, Adolescents, The Messthetics, Voice of Addiction and more...so, what are you waiting for, go listen, NOW:

If you dug that track Venom from Khiis, check out everything else they have done to date, here. This is straight up, ripping hardcore outta Oakland. Soooooo good.

For all my DC and DCish people, if you feel so inclined, buy tickets to see The Messthetics and Ex Hex rock 930 Club on May 10...it'll be fun!

Here's the video for the Direct Hit! song, Paid in Brains...anyone else think this sounds a bit like Rocket from the Crypt? That's very high praise, by the way


Although Pridebowl is sadly no more, you can still get your fill of lead man Aaron Goulding with his new(ish) band, Setbacks. Go to their facebook page and say huuuulllloooo


I smell a theme here....AND BRRRRRAAAAIIINNNNSSS...i mean ice cream...

Black Lives Matter (still!!)


editor's note: I pronounced "Breathe" wrong at the end. haha come on, you know what I meant!


Well, go figure, Black Lives still Matter! Even those of the ones that aren't your token prop! Wow!

Welcome to the latest Wednesdays With Andrew, folks, and get psyched for some absolutely ear-pounding tunes. In between my ramblings that cover an array of topics, serious ones like suicide, and very-not-serious ones like Alanis Morissette, we play new music from The Specials and Pkew pkew pkew, newish music from Pennywise and Puff Pieces, and some classics from bands like Cigar, The Prodigy and more.

So, go ahead, take some pre-playlist Advil and go listen, NOW:

My wife (literally..like, she talks like an alien and everything), every time we have friends coming over:




Check out Puff Pieces in their glorious totality, here.

While you're at it, make sure you give Pkew pkew pkew's new album, entitled Optimal Lifestyles, a spin too.

Annnnnnnd if you're into blaring, blistering melodic hardcore, as you should be, go see if PEARS is playing near you! 


Well, this certainly doesn't look consensual..

Think about donating, getting involved, spreading the word or otherwise generally supporting organizations that help with suicide prevention....here are just a few examples of available resources:

  • https://samaritanshope.org/
  • https://afsp.org/ 
  • https://save.org/
  • https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org

Remember, no man (woman) is an island! You are never, ever alone, and do not be afraid to reach out to someone if you're ever feeling down.


Alright that's a wrap, smell ya folks next week!
