This week on the BOX... 

Apologies for losing the beginning of the show; it's not always the most tech savvy situation here on the box :)   However, eventually... 

DJ talks about being an honorary 'strangee' as he steps in for the hospitalized Craving Strange guitarist for an upcoming show.  He also gives us an awful glimpse into the birth of a few insecurities and how crippling they can get over time.

He speaks to making space for some gratitude in this line of work and points out where he first found it, continues to find it and why it makes such a difference in getting through the every day grind that is trying to be in a band.

Why All New Episode is such a great live band, a preview of cover band "support", hitting two shows in one night (like a CHAMP) and MORE!

This week on the BOX... 

DJ is trying to figure out which Spongebob character each member of REVEL 9 would be.  He's got Tony as a dead lock for Squidward, is pretty sure Nidal is Mr. Krabs, is settling on Kaz as Pearl and reluctantly accepts that he, himself, might be Plankton.  This conversation is so stupid and such a complete waste of time that it naturally progresses across to other bands of the local Sandbox community.

DJ also wraps up the show reflecting on Tuesday night's LI Rock: Unplugged performance, celebrating his exact birth-time on stage and experiencing a real moment of gratitude.

Why "Road Bands" tend to be better sounding bands, a new appreciation for Lzzy Hale, why conversations with Noodle are such a big deal and MORE!

This week on the BOX...   BOX  #333!!!

DJ sneezes a dozen times and gives his nose a cold.  Ruling out the Coronavirus, he bravely carries on and talks about what it might be like for an artist to have to be "so and so person" from "so and so band".  He wonders if it's good or bad, discusses points for both and still doesn't come to a conclusion.

DJ also spends a lot of time on the art of "comping" a song.  And goes through step by step why they chose the songs they did to comp against, what they were specifically looking for in each and why you never want to actually hit the mark you're chasing.  Lots of information in there for people interested in that sort of thing!

Brand New Music(s) from Danger Club, why DJ likes All Time Low so much, the painful wait for R9 feedback and MORE!

This week on the BOX...   

DJ had some highs and lows at Tuesday night's show, and he's got takeaways for everyone.

DJ talks about the different "sounds" there are during a live show - the sound the audience hears, and the sound the band hears.  And he goes into some detail about how important it is that the band handle "their" sound properly - and what can happen when even just one of them can't seem to play ball with the rest of the team.  He also dares other guitarists out there to play an entire set simply from memory WITHOUT hearing ANY of your own guitar.  Good luck with that.

DJ also has a lot to say about "touring" bands - especially what is NOT special about them.  He also blames substandard bands for basically ruining the hard rock genre by bringing around their crappy Ellio's slices and passing them off as "pizza" so often that when a "good" band comes around with their Brooklyn slice, people don't even want to try it.

Why it's OK to like a pop song on the BOX, the coolest key-change of the week, the mysterious disappearance of Glass Mansions and MORE!

This week on the BOX...   

DJ talks a little shop and gets into how he deals with some clients, especially the ones that like to say the data is "wrong" - as if.  He talks a bit about the continuing success of the LI Rock: Unplugged series as it heads into it's SIXTH YEAR!  - yeah, he was surprised too.

DJ has a lot to say about wedding receptions.  And rockstars.  And how the two don't belong together.  He has some advice for the marrying millennials in terms of class and decorum, but wants to make damn sure that you know you're not actually a rockstar - no matter how much you pretend to be.  Because "rockstar" is an ACTUAL job done by ACTUAL people that work at it day in and day out.  And you're just a wannabe playing dress-up.  Grow up.

Why no one should care that the new Tool song sucks, why would someone waste their time posting their unwanted and unnecessary reviews about it, what a better use for that time actually could be and MORE!

This week on the BOX...   

DJ , like most 5-year-olds, has trouble peeing properly, and even though he has "stuff to talk about on the box" decides to lead with that.  Eventually he gets into why the vocal melody of a song is just so damn important and how hard of a lesson that is for musicians to actually learn.

He also talks about the "Big SPONGE Show" this weekend at Revolution and calls out Last Turn Off Broadway for not taking enough growth hormone, Craving Strange for taking too much 'beard-food' and Sweet Tooth for being "so good" that the audience is too tired for REVEL 9.  Yeah, it's a cop-out, but it's his show!

Why DJ gets 3 votes in Dino Skatepark, why Christopher Hall is awesome, everyone's favorite sing-along guitar solo and MORE!

This week on the BOX...  It's quiet in here... 

DJ talks politics and chases everyone out of the chatroom.  Then he talks about his pending blood test results just to ensure no one comes back!

He talks about Kaz's new solo record, and just how hard, and important, it is to be able to "breathe" musically and creatively while in such a busy "main" project, annnnnd how to a record properly - and what HE thinks that actually means.  He also applauds Jimmy G. for his total commitment to any and all Halloween costumes, especially this years and he has all kinds of facebook trouble today, and walks us all through it, unfortunately. 

DJ takes a huge hit with the upcoming R9 record, "Higher Learning" returns - thank goodness, the Queen Movie and MORE!

This week on the BOX...  DJ is all about NUTUYU... Still. 

He goes through the successes of NUTUYU 6, while still feeling somewhat disenchanted with the whole thing, but still discusses possibilities for NUTUYU 7 as well as the last-minute show add for REVEL 9.

We get a HERricanes update as well as a review of the awful August weather thus far.  DJ discusses how childish it is to aggressively up and "unfriend" and actual "friend" on facebook and how sometimes an online sale can be SO good, that he's tempted to buy something he already has!  #dope

This week on the BOX...  DJ is back at the BOX. 

DJ is back to normal BOX-duty and has stories from vacation... but never gets to them.

He has, however, figured out the secret to stop eating something delicious, seems to have an endless amount to say about NUTUYU 6 and has weird information about scotch-guarded vans! (Courtesy of Dylan from DSP).  He gets #livesentence with Producer Dan off to a rocky start, takes some chair inventory and handles everything else that's been "poppin'" the last couple of weeks.
