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,

On the most recent episode of the Goddamn Dave Hill Show on WFMU, I had VICE and Street Carnage founder Gavin McInnes and singer/songwriter/badass Patrick Salt Ryan and the great Philip H. Anselmo (Down, Pantera, Superjoint Ritual, etc.) on the telephone for over two hours during which we called Pepper Keenan and asked him if he killed a pirate and also did our damndest to call King Diamond and Glenn Danzig. In short, it was the best. You can stream the whole episode right here.

Call back in 20 minutes,

I Got to Take Over an Australian Radio Station!

Greetings from Australia, where I am totally doing shows at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival for the first time in my whole life. I am having a lovely time. Today, I got to do the “Take 5″ segment on Triple J radio, one of the big stations down here. I got to pick out five of my favorite songs and tell stories about them for a full hour and it was super, super fun and now I am the most popular person in Australia and you can ask anyone. You can listen to the whole thing right here.

Love,
Dave Hill

Stream The Goddamn Dave Hill Show, March 11, 2014 Edition Featuring Lasagna!

If you missed this past Tuesday’s (March 11, 2014 for all you calendar buffs) Goddamn Dave Hill Show with guests including Cleveland comedian and Hispanic person Ramon Rivas and “The Adventures of Pete and Pete”‘s Danny Tamberelli and Mike Maronna, you can stream it here in the format of your choice or listen/subscribe on iTunes, the popular Internet thing. This was a fun show featuring a lasagna surprise, pork rinds courtesy of Reed Mullin from Corrosion of Conformity and Teenage Time Killer’s dad Mr. Mullin and a not-very-heated debate about whether dogs are better than cats or the other way around. I hope you enjoy it so much.

New Valley Lodge Video for “Kiss Me, I’m Drunk”

Hi. If you like the Old West, horses, and Rich Fulcher from The Mighty Boosh, you are really going to like the new Valley Lodge video for our song “Kiss Me, I’m Drunk” because it has all that stuff and then even more cool stuff besides that. We shot the video this past December in Dunton Hot Springs, Colorado, which was gorgeous and nuts. The video was directed by Tim Fornara, who is English and talks crazy, and executive produced by the lovely Rebecca O’Malley. I hope you enjoy it so much.

Love,
Dave Hill
