LISTEN TO THE OCTOBER 29, 2015 DIRTY ROOTS RADIO SHOW

This close to Halloween, I typically do some kind of Halloween extravaganza show. (It is one of my two favorite days of the year, after all).

But I wasn't feeling particularly Halloween-y Thursday night. So I just followed the muse and rode the vibe that was laid out before us. We ended with a Halloween jam for the homies.

Be sure to check out my interviews with Scott H. Biram and Jonny Two Bags. They're going on tour together, with Jesse Dayton, in November. There are excerpts from the interviews included in the show here and plenty of music from each of the guys.

Dirty Roots Radio Special Edition: Jonny Two Bags Interview

Jonny Wickersham, better known to most of us as Jonny Two Bags, has been the guitar player for my all-time favorite band, Social Distortion, since 2000.  He's also a member of the Cadillac Tramps and previously played with U.S. Bombs and Youth Brigade.

He released his first solo record, the fantastic "Salvation Town", in 2014.

Throughout November, Jonny will be on tour with Scott H. Biram and Jesse Dayton.  CLICK HERE TO check his website to see if they'll be in your neighborhood.  I'll be at their November 4 show in St. Louis and absolutely can - not - wait.

Thanks so much to Jonny for spending some time talking with me.  Check out our conversation, where we touch on Social D, songwriting, salvation, and more.

Be sure to check out Dirty Roots Radio Thursday nights from 8-10 p.m. (CST) and check out the archives of past shows.

Dirty Roots Radio Special Edition: Scott H. Biram Interview

Scott H. Biram, the dirty ol' one man band from Austin, TX will be on the road in November with Jesse Dayton and Jonny Two Bags. I can't remember a show I've been looking forward to this much in a LONG time.

Scott's been a "core artist" on the Dirty Roots Radio Show for years and he's been a guest on the program several times. It's always great to catch up with him. Check out our conversation here, where we touch on his weird 80's influences, the light and dark sides of life, songwriting, and of course, the upcoming tour.
