Episode #88, Interview with Masked Intruder

Hello Hello Hello!

This was very exciting! Last week I got a chance to talk to Blue Intruder of Masked Intruder! This band has been my favorite new band of the past three years. I love everything about them: their music, their style, their lyrics, the whole story and a magical feel of illegality!

Before their show at the Biltmore Cabaret we sat down with Blue Intruder at the park and talked about their new record M.I., an ideal date, Chixdiggit!, stealing, crime, jail cuisine, jail slang and other illegal related topics!

And in the end of the show I played four songs by four awesome local bands The Greatest Sons, Contra Code, Desolation Sound (ex-Jerk Store) and Jesse LeBourdais which played this awesome show
