Episode 143: Mac and David are too raw to front, know what I’m sayin? If not, listen to the show. Featuring some ultimate halloween costume talk and a Geek vs Hipster discussion. I’d like to see NPR hit this hard with their stories. Not possible as Mascot Wedding hits the hardest.

“America’s Boy” by Broadcast, from the album Tender Buttons
“Young Veins (Die Tonight)” by The Young Veins, from the album Take a Vacation!

Hey crew. Mac here. Everyone got their calendars out? Good. Here are some upcoming Mascot Wedding live events!
++This Wednesday, October 13: Master Pancake Video Jukebox. An all-star short attention span event.

Tix here.

++Monday, October 25: Hot Property @ the Monday Night Mash. Rescheduled
++Thursday, October 28: Mac hosts the Velveeta Room Open Mic. That’s me! I’ll be hosting this open mic from 9:30 to probably past midnight. I’m only going to do a short warm-up set at the beginning. The real reason I’m posting this is the hope that some of you take pity on me. I’ll be there for three hours probably. Come and say hi to me ferchrissakes! 9:30 @ the Velveeta Room (downtown).
++Sunday November 14: Stag Comedy. This is the big one. Trust me that you’ll be hearing more about this show as the date nears. This is an all new sketch comedy show from Mascot Wedding Productions. This is going to melt your face off. I swear it! The time isn’t set yet, but it’ll be at the Alamo Ritz Downtown. If you miss this you’ll hate yourself forever. For realzies, this show is gonna be epic.
Episode 141: David and Mac are joined in-studio by comedian and creative force Kerri Lendo. There’s some talk of Kerri’s new short film, Mac can’t handle his phone’s alarm, Dan Cortese isn’t fooling anyone, loud Sun Chips bags, and David takes on hard-hitting Weezer issues. Fun show? Well yeah, but it was also maybe the funnest. Think that over.

“Lions and Cages” by Wolf Gang, from their self-titled album
“Drowning” by The Reigning Sound, from the album Too Much Guitar

The super funny comedienne, award-winning filmmaker, and friend of the show KERRI LENDO will be joining us in-studio tomorrow. If you’re next to a radio (91.7 FM) or a computer (koop.org) tomorrow and don’t tune in (6-7 CST), you’ll have only your cold empty heart to console you. And, knowing you, probably whatever’s on Netflix instant.
Episode 140: Some best-worst tales of love. A little college sports grousing. Mac and David go on a road trip to a Major League game. Plus Chief Spelchnik shares a tale of love. Fun show. Thanks callers!
