Stream This Past Tuesday’s Goddamn Dave Hill Show on WFMU with Guests Damien Echols, Lorri Davis, and Brandon Seabrook

This past Tuesday, which is to say June 17, 20014, I had Damien Echols (West Memphis Three) and his wife Lorri Davis, authors of the new book Yours for Eternity on my popular radio program, The Goddamn Dave Hill Show on WFMU. We talked about love, prison, Danzig, and all sorts of other interesting stuff. Then Brandon Seabrook came by and shredded on the banjo so much that I practically had a seizure. I also played more hot jams than should be legal, including Danzig. You can and should listen to the whole thing right here.

Thanks,
Dave Hill

I Was on the Popular @midnight Program. Watch It Now on the Internet, Which Is from the Future!

Last week, during my glamorous visit to Los Angeles, Home of the Stars, I taped an episode of @midnight, the popular Comedy Central program hosted by Chris Hardwick. Also, on the program were the lovely and talented Michelle Buteau and Steve Agee, who is much taller than I am. I had a really fun time and there were lots of delicious snacks in my dressing room, which was great for everybody. And even though I lost, I swear that was only because my buzzer was broken. I sense foul play! Anyway, you can watch the whole thing right here. It is the best.

Love,
Dave Hill

Podcast Fever!: I Was on JJGO, Comedy on Vinyl, and the David Feldman Show and You Should Totally Listen to All of Them.

What with me being in show business and all, I recently spent a week in Los Angeles, Home of the Stars. And while most of my time there was spent in high-powered meetings with the most powerful people in Hollywood and also having intercourse with starlets and whatnot, I also managed to sit down and be a guest on a slew of podcasts, which are from the future. Some of them aren’t out yet, but some of them are! The ones that are include Jordan Jesse Go!, the Comedy on Vinyl podcast, and the David Feldman Show and I totally encourage you to listen to all of them right now. That would be so great. Also, that is a picture of a dog podcasting above. I know- I got a pretty big kick out of it too.

Valley Lodge (Classic Lineup) Hot Rock Show This Saturday Night at the Rock Shop in Brooklyn. Deal with It.

Attention People of New York City:

Hello.  This is your man Dave Hill writing to let you know that if you want to get your ass beaten down by hot rock played by aging white guys who don’t give a crap about anything basically, you have just hit a street called Easy because my hot rock band Valley Lodge will be firing up the asskicking machine once again this Saturday night, which is to say May 24, 2014, at the Rock Shop over there in Brooklyn.  We are the best band.  Check out a few videos for our hot jams here, here, or here, dammit.

Anyway, it is important to note that after two or three weeks of inner turmoil, lineup changes, and procedures both cosmetic and invasive, the band has once again returned to its classic lineup of me, Rob Pfeiffer, Eddie Eyeball, and Phil Costello.  We are going to play all the hits, including our newest hit “Go”, which is also the theme song to the popular program Last Week Tonight with John Oliver on HBO.  So there.  We will be joined by two sweet bands on Saturday night, Oxen Free and Pavelle.  They will both play before us and then we will burn the place down after that with our scorching hot rock that basically no one can handle.  We are also on iTunes and a lot of chicks want to make out with us and you can ask anyone.  Okay, hope to see you Saturday.

Still street,
Dave Hill

Goddamn Dave Hill Show Playlists Now Available on Spotify! Yeah!

Comments »



Hi. It’s Dave again. Anyway, as (hopefully) many of you are aware, I recently started hosting my own radio show, the Goddamn Dave Hill Show, on WFMU, the popular independent radio station. As part of each show, I play a handful of what I consider to be some of the greatest hot rock jams of all-time. And now, through the magic of Spotify, you can crank up each week’s playlist in the privacy of your own home (or wherever you feel like cranking it up). I’ve embedded the playlist from my debut episode (featuring guests Dick Cavett, Philip H. Anselmo, Jon Benjamin, and Doug Gillard) above. You can check out other playlists by going to my profile on Spotify. I’ve got a bunch up already and hope to have the rest up as soon as I can remove the rest of this duct tape. I hope you enjoy the hot rock jams.

Still street,
Dave Hill

Greenwich Village Stories: A Collection of Memories

Comments »


book
I meant to mention this earlier, but a brief essay I wrote has been included in the fantastic new book Greenwich Village Stories: A Collection Memories by Judith Stonehill. As hinted at in the title, the book is a collection of memories about Greenwich Village, the popular Manhattan neighborhood. Other people contributing pieces to the book include Calvin Trillin, Malcolm Gladwell, Ed Koch, Mario Batali, Simon Doonan, Lou Reed, Brooke Shields, and a bunch of other people I can’t believe they let me be in a book with. Check it out and then totally but it here if you like good books that will eventually lead to sex probably.

Thanks,
Dave Hill

As hinted at in the subject line, this past Tuesday’s (May 13, 2014 for all you calendar buffs) Goddamn Dave Hill Show is up and ready to stream like the wind right here.  My guests include talk show legend and American treasure Dick Cavett, artist and illustrator Danny Hellman, and Andy Shernoff from the Dictators.  And then a bunch of other stuff happens besides that.  In short, this one pretty much has everything.  Listen here.  And, hey, why not subscribe to the Goddamn Dave Hill Show on iTunes here while you’re at it.  That would be so great.

Happy Sunday,

Dave Hill

Valley Lodge’s “Go” Is the Theme Song for “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” on HBO

Here’s something exciting- my hot rock band Valley Lodge‘s song “Go” is the theme to the excellent new program Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, airing Sunday nights at 11pm on HBO, the popular cable network.  You can watch the debut episode in full here.  And- what the heck- why not watch the video for “Go” here while you’re at it.  And if you really want, you can go ahead and download “Go” from iTunes whenever you feel like it, but I won’t provide a link for that because I’m an artist, dammit. Oh, fine, here you go.

Still street,

Daytrotter Session with Me, Dave Hill

When I was in San Francisco a couple months ago doing SF Sketchfest, I stopped by Daytrotter studios and recorded a quick session playing guitar while talking, telling “jokes”, and reading erotic short stories. You can listen to the whole thing right here. Tell the others!

Happy Friday,
Dave Hill
