The focus of part one is on Friday, March 9th so you will hear from all the bands playing the first day of the 6th annual Aquabear County Fair. From the early show at Donkey you will hear Chris Biester (represented by an Appalachian Death Ride song), Sovroncourt, and Moon High.

“It’s time to ring in the new with yet another perfectly cromulent episode of Sometimes the Bear Eats You! Oh, what a year it will be. We’re bringing you all new podcast shenanigans like only Aquabearlegion.com can. Ohio-born music sensation Hutz bestows upon us a wonderful new theme song. Noah and Matthu watch a horror flick. Freddy murders some teens. Kris chats about Akron with multi-instrument powerhouse Sean Djuricic of Interfuse, Tight Whips and National Suicide Day. Noah highlights some of his favorite Akron haunts. Kris talks to everyone’s favorite Foreign Legionnaire about his space rock opera’s debut and plans for future performances. Then the episode is pretty much done. Suck it, 2011. You’re dead to me now.

The Moose Is Loose: Episode One

Well, Brian decided it was finally time to make his own podcast and he is excited to present the results of the first episode of The Moose Is Loose! This podcast will focus on Ohio music and is named after the first ever compilation project he put together in 2003 (which you can download for FREE here). This episode showcases some of Brian’s favorite songs from the Aquabear online compilations and features music from The Franchise, The Makebelieves, Dragline Brothers, We March, Mike Elliott, Machine Go Boom, Washout Corporation, Neo Nothing, Casual Future, The Math Squad, Casiotone Orchestra, Men of Gentle Birth, Blackark, Matt Collander, and Small Object a. Not much talking in this one (Brian is still perfecting his smooth NPR voice) but you will get to hear our host babble a bit about his history with Ohio music. The first of many episodes to come.

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!

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.

Sometimes the Bear Eats You: Episode Three

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!
