I NEED YOU!

Thank you for downloading and finding Capital Rock City… what I need now more than ever is an increase of downloads.  In fact, the goal is to multiply the audience by a factor of 10!  ahhh.  Scary goal, but required for the life of CRC to continue.  Please help me achieve this by sharing the Capital Rock City podcast with a friend.

Here is the Show: Capital Rock City 54

And remember folks, my march to 1,000 CRC downloads begins when you subscribe Capital Rock City from the iTunes music store, a free download in their podcast section, or RSS this baby direct from The Zone dot FM.

And while subscribing… the Polcast is marching to 1,000 side-by-side with CRC so please discover Pol Plastino’s most excellant and hilarious weekly.

DJ Notes:

01) Armchair Cynics – “Ablaze”
02) The Februarys – “Rock and Roll’s Enemy”
03) Fake Shark – Real Zombie! – “Angel Lust”
04) Hollydene – “Brick By Brick”
05) Closer to Four – “The Start of Our Decent”
06) Stephen Gittens One Lavish Intro – “Slap Oooooh!”

Double R (drums) and Adam (guitars) from the Armchair Cynics stopped by my show on Monday afternoon to share their brand spanking new single “Ablaze.”  You’ll hear it lots on the Zone and I think our friends at CFOX in Vancouver playing it too and Jimmy James at the Peak in Van is playing a new song… but a different single.. I think….  I better email him and find out which song he’s playing.  The point is, you’ll be hearing lots of new Armchair Cynics this summer and hopefully the boys will elevate their career this year! gooooooooo 2009!

When Coral and I first started dating in 2006, we went to a show at the Fernwood Community Center (or whatever that all-ager barn is called) and saw a band called The Februarys.  The band has continued to grow and now is signed by Wind-Up Records.  The new song is called “Rock and Roll’s Enemy” and you can see The Februarys this Friday with theset at The White Eagle Hall.

Pol Plastino turned me on to his friend’s band outta Langley called Fake Shark-Real Zombie!  I think these guys are fantastic and the story of their band name is well worth the price of admission.  I very groovy modern sound.

Hollydene dropped a record off at the Zone for Dave Sawchuk… I was intrigued so I stole it off his desk and had a listen.  Really good.  Wow, I was impressed.  I choose the song “Brick By Brick” for this week’s podcast, but next week I think there are some other songs worth your time.  I like.

Jess has a blog that I follow here at the Morning After Show and she shared an artist who she is championing.  read the story and enjoy the sounds.

Closer to Fours record chronicles his relationship with Jess (I think that is how the story goes).  They have since separated but remain close.  The first song is called “The Start of our Decent” which foreshadows how the relationship ends.  The song has a glorious build.  I love how this song ends.

Sara P’s better half? Mr. Stephen Gittens (ex Conversation) has been playing with some beat making and having some fun with his friend MC Lavish.  Um yeah…  The song is as it is.

Want to see the wondrous video I was watching during CRC 54? This clip inspired the band name for Fake Shark-Real Zombie!  here it is:

That’s all I got.  Today I begin my quest for 1,000.  please help me reach my goal and share this link with a friend…. or friends.

Go with yourself.

Mongol was pretty good.  Tells the story of Genghis Khan in his early life.  Follows him as a boy that kinda gets the short end of the stick.  Then as a young man fighting to first regain his freedom, and later to rescue his wife, and later still he fights for freedom (he gets captured again and put in a Zoo… SWA?).  then he unites all the Mongols into a glorious fighting forces and heads West to Russia.  End of epic film.

Part 2 is supposed to come out in 2010.  hmmm, Olympics or Genghis Khan laying into some Christian Knights?

The thing with the movie that sorta irked me is, how come Genghis Khan was such a rad warrior.  When I watched Batman, it made sense… Christian Bale goes off to some secret monastery of shadowy ninjas and beats the shit out of Liam Neeson and swims in ice water.

Granted, Genghis Khan did swim in ice water and live… but the fighting doesn’t make sense.  In the early part of the story, he is little more than a slave or hobo.  Then they fast forward and he’s Heath Ledger in a Knight’s Tale.  They don’t connect the lines.

Oh man… I just watched the Knight’s Tale trailer again and it brought the LOLz.

In G n’ R news, this story made me giggle.

Prodigy are putting out a new record, and my man Dave Grohl is drumming.  Like me, he is a Dad and rocks the facial hair.  We’re like twins.

James posted this video on his Facebook. Some dude dancing to Beyonce’s “Put a Ring on it.”

I am not too sure if James does a whole heck of a lot of programming at The Peak, or just watches quirky videos all day.

This commercial got sent to me from a Zoner named Gina.  It is four minutes long, but I think worth it.

I do spend a lot of time of Facebook, but I am not member of no Facebook army.  WTF is wrong with society?
