Rough Trade Publishing’s “Song a Day” Featuring Valley Lodge and Painted Doll
24th
Feb


Here’s something cool. Rough Trade Publishing, the company that handles the musical catalogs of my hot rock bands Valley Lodge and Painted Doll, are releasing a song a day from their artists for 90 days and you can get every song for just $20.17. Included in the mother lode is a new song by Valley Lodge called “Come Back to My Bed” and “Together Alone” by Painted Doll. All profits go to the Southern Poverty Law Center, who are doing some great work during these difficult times. Support a great cause and get some scorching hot jams in the process by clicking here right now.

Rock,
Dave Hill

Me, Dave Hill on BBC Radio 2’s Arts Show with Jonathan Ross
24th

Hi. It’s me, Dave again, writing to you from sunny London. I hope this note finds you incredible. Anyway, yesterday I had the great pleasure of being a guest on the great Jonathan Ross’ radio show on BBC2 radio here in the UK. Mel C. from the Spice Girls was on too. I saw her in the lobby but was too shy to walk up and say hi. Life, right? Anyway, I had a blast on the show and even got to do my wildly popular “Crime Blotter” segment from The Goddamn Dave Hill Show on the air with Jonathan. You can and should listen to the whole episode right here.

Thanks,
Dave Hill (from before)

Tragedy’s New Video for “Stayin’ Alive” (I’m Totally in It)
9th
Feb


Hi. It’s Dave again. My good buddies in Tragedy, an all-metal tribute to the Bee Gees (and beyond!), made a video for their new version of “Stayin’ Alive” and totally asked me to star in the music video for it, which is awesome. You can and should watch it above unless you don’t like stuff that’s awesome. Also, go see Tragedy live because they are the best basically.

Still street,

Me, Dave, in Vogue Magazine. Finally.
6th

You know, I had almost given up on being in Vogue magazine entirely and then it happened, dammit- Vogue magazine included me in an article called “5 Comedians Who Might Help You Stay Sane for the Next 4 Years”, which is to say that I am one of the five comedians they talk about. And while, sure, I was kind of hoping they would have had me all sexy-like in some fashion spread with a donkey or something, this is pretty cool too and I’ll take it. Thanks, Vogue. You can read the whole thing right here.

My buddy Jason Narducy has a great band called Split Single who have a new album out called Metal Frames that you should totally get if you like stuff that’s awesome. And you can watch the new video for the Split Single’s great new single “Untry Love,” which features me and the great Anya Marina as Jason’s bandmates who have pretty much had it with his bullshit. This video has everything, including my sweet Eddie Van Halen t-shirt. I hope you enjoy it so much. More info here if you like reading and such.

Love to all,

My Buddy Chris Reifert and I Formed a Band Called Painted Doll
4th
Jan


Hi. It’s Dave. Happy New Year and stuff. I hope your holiday season was electric. Anyway, I wanted to let you know that my buddy Chris Reifert from such legendary metal bands as Autopsy, Death, and Abscess and I formed a rock band over the past year called
Painted Doll and we are the best. We just finished recording our debut hot album, which will be out later this year in some form or another. I’m told the music is kind of like classic psych rock mixed with garage rock and whatever else but all I know is it was super fun to make and I love it. You can listen to a couple of our new hits below. And tell all the other kids too so we become big with the teens and such. Also, our buddy Wade Snook designed the logo above for us. So there. Here are the jams, bro.

Thanks!
Dave Hill

The Sexiest Elbows in Rock Music II!!!!
10th
Dec


Split Single, the rock machine driven by my friend Jason Narducy (Bob Mould Band, Superchunk, and 78 other bands), has a new album called Metal Frames out now and it’s excellent. You should totally get it if you like hot rock. As part of telling the band’s story and also how Jason has the sexiest elbows in rock and you can ask anyone, there is a new web series out and I am totally in the second episode. You can and should watch it above, over and over again. It’s the best basically. Michael Shannon is in it and everything.

AV Club’s “Pick a Choice”
29th
Oct

960
This past September, during an invasion of Chicago during the midwestern jaunt of my electrifying book tour, I swung by the office’s of the Onion’s A.V. Club to play “Pick a Choice”, the game that is sweeping the nation, with A.C. Club mainman John Teti. It was scintillating and they gave me a free mousepad and other cool stuff when I left. You can watch the whole thing right here. It’s incredible.

Stay street,
