The Radio8Ball Show with Andras Jones, The Young Evils, and The Janks in May

The Radio8Ball Show is a musical divination show where we answer audience questions by picking songs at random, and then interpreting the randomly chosen song as the answer to the question.

The opening night, Friday, May 6th, will feature Andras Jones as the host AND musical guest. Jones may be best known as the host of Radio8Ball or for his film credits, but he is also an accomplished songwriter who has released 8 CDs, toured extensively, and whose songs have appeared in numerous soundtracks. This will be his first public musical performance since 2003. Buy tickets now for Andras Jones.

The Saturday, May 7th show will feature local critical darlings The Young Evils. The Young Evils are Troy Nelson (guitar/vocals), Mackenzie Mercer (vocals), Cody Hurd (guitar), and Barrett Jones (bass). They have just self-released their debut album "Enchanted Chapel" which was produced by Barrett Jones (Nirvana, The Melvins, Pussy Galore). They have played several Seattle music festivals including Seattle Weekly's ReverbFest and The Capitol Hill Block Party, and most recently opened for The Vaselines for Seattle City Arts Fest. NPR recently chose their song "Get Over It" as song of the day, and Seattle blog Three Imaginary Girls just named their album "Best local debut of the 2010."

The closing night on May 8th is an all-ages affair and features the return of The Janks whose last appearance on Radio8Ball still has people reeling. The Janks formed in 2006 in Los Angeles and soon after released their debut album "Delicate Mouthfeels." Over the next three years the band would reform around founding members Zachary Zmed, (Vocals, Guitar and Keys) and Garth Herberg, (Guitar and Keys), adding Wade Ryff (Bass), Lucas Ventura (Drums), and Dylan Zmed (Vocals, Guitar, Keys & Percussion). Since 2009 the band has been touring extensively, playing to enthusiastic crowds across America, while developing their unique sound and live show into an identity that can only be labeled as their own. Buy tickets now for The Janks.
