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!
Featuring: Y La Bamba, Chris Biester, Over the Rhine, Drakkar Sauna, Wanda Jackson, Neko Case

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

I arrive at the NMF with Andrew and Mackenzie and capture what I can before hopping on one of the extended golf carts to shuttle festival goers between the campground and the Historic Village of Robbins Crossing.

We’re back with a bigger, badder, bolder episode three! Noah and Kris take on the Queen City in this edition of Sometimes the Bear Eats You (which we have affectionately dubbed STBEY and pronounce “stebby”). All questions, or at least the following four, will be answered. Who won Noah’s exclusive loop tape by correctly answering Episode Deux’s homework question? What is the all time greatest action flick one-liner? Who would win in a battle of the Collinses? What happened with the whole Kickstarter fundraising campaign? We also play some great tunes from Cincy bands and interview The Joint Chiefs of Rap’s Big Man. Ha ha! Be sure to grab the Joint Chiefs album for free right here. It’s free, dammit. The Aquabear loves free music!
We’re back! With two times the excitement and 7/8 the fun, Sometimes the Bear Eats You returns with Episode Deux! This time Noah and Kris look back longingly on their first project together, respond to listener comments, assign more homework, talk about Cleveland and more. Most importantly, we spread the word about the Aqueabear Legion Volume 4 compilation and fundraising through Kickstarter.com! Supporters have already donated more than 2/3 of our $750 goal, but we still need your help. Kickstarter.com! Kickstarter.com! Go! Go! Go! Now! Now! Now! Then come back here and listen to the podcast:
