Happy New Year! Violent Femmes interview, Watt project, Body Kite shows 

New Pierre Pressure Podcast episode 30 up now! A very special re-broadcast of Pierre's interview with Violent Femmes singer Gordon Gano and drummer Brian Viglione. Recorded in September of 2013 at East Village Radio.

Pierre is hard at work putting finishing touches on his collaboration with bassist Mike Watt. This ambitous project features an amazing array of musicians including Kenny Wollesen, Nels Cline, Tony Scalzo, Robert Walter, Georgia Hubley, Stephen Calhoun, Steve Ulrich, Dan Menke, Yuval Lion, Gerald Menke, Chris Stromquist, Dion Thurman, Quentin Jennings, and Izzy Rock among others. Every track starts with just drums, then bass is added by Watt, and anything goes from there. Look for a release this spring.

Some great Body Kite shows coming up: 
January 19 - Brooklyn Music Kitchen, Brooklyn, NY
February 1 - Barbes, Brooklyn, NY
April 20 - Live film soundtrack, Old Town Theater, Brewster, NY
