Sometimes the Bear Eats You: Episode Five

Hello again, internet! We’ve missed you so. In this very special fifth episode of Sometimes the Bear Eats You we focus our undivided attention toward our great state’s capital city. That’s right! It’s all Columbus all the time. No foolin’ this time. Your hosts Noah and Kris discuss jam bands, White Castle and semen. Noah interviews the talented Josh James of Joshua P. James and the Paper Planes fame. Also, we introduce a new segment as The Angry Ohioan joins us for the first time with a bit of political commentary. All this and plenty of great tunes exclusively from Columbus-based bands. Don’t forget to post comments listing your top three places to eat in Columbus. Now get to listening!

Sometimes the Bear Eats You Too: Brian Hates Rusted Root

Hello, internet! This pocket-sized episode of STBEY Too features Brian & Randy discussing the natural beauty of Maine, why Rusted Root is so damn terrible, and a fat kid’s YouTube food reviews. You may have heard the Rusted Root argument in a previous edition of STBEY Too, but the audio quality sucked. Now, you can hear it somewhat better. Also, listen to various hippies chatting, whistling and playing guitar in the background. I threw in some of Noah’s old loop tape recordings too because I love you that much. Enjoy!

Sometimes the Bear Eats You: Episode Four

STBEY is back after a brief delay with a fourth episode that manages to be equal parts raucous and somber. This time we focus on Ohio’s current capital city, Columbus! Listen to the rockin’ sounds of Wheels on Fire (even though they’re from Athens), Super Desserts and Narrow and the Brights. Laugh at three goons as special guest Dave Obenour joins us to discuss one of Noah’s top ten favorite albums. Shake your head in despair as Kris fails to accurately describe how to make Noah’s signature drink: The Rolling DDT. You know what, here’s the recipe for everyone out there who wants to taste the magic.
Mix in a Pint Glass:
Ice (to taste)
3 shots of Vodka (or 3 fingers if you wanna get loco)
10 oz. of Tonic Water
Splash of Grape Soda (Welch’s, Crush, or a nice Dr. Brown’s)
1 shot of Grenadine
Mix with a swizzle stick, and garnish with a fresh orange slice.
Have a couple of those beasts, then listen to the podcast. I assume it’s much more enjoyable when one is three sheets to the wind. Click below to listen.

STBEY Too: Aquabear Legion Volume 4 CD Release Show

On June 11, 2011 the Aquabear Legion Volume 4 CD was unleashed upon an Athens, OH populous that was salivating for some unbelievably awesome home grown Ohio tunes. Their craving was satiated on that night by the two-disc, 38 band compilation of compilations. Now you, our faithful followers, can experience all of the magic of that evening at the Union. Ashley and Emily grew a little bit older. Seascapes, Black Owls, Scubadog and Weedghost performed memorable sets. Brian and Andrew got drunk and shouted at Todd’s digital recorder. Have fun, and be liberal with your comments!

Groggy and muddy, I catch what I can without getting Todd’s handheld digital recorder too wet. I hope our listeners enjoy what we’ve posted. Next year will be even better!

Sometimes the Bear Eats You Too: 2011 Nelsonville Music Festival – Day 2

I awaken on the floor of Brian and Sherri’s hotel room (Thanks, you two!) to the sounds of someone retching in the room next door. Then, I record what I can before my second shuttle shift. I missed Yo La Tengo but managed to get some of The Flaming Lips for you.

Featuring: The Black Swans, Michael Hurley, Chris Biester, Jerry DeCicca, Sgt Dunbar & the Hobo Banned, Ned Oldham, Cheyenne Marie Mize, The Flaming Lips
