The set climaxes during an elctro-jazz-fuzed moment where Pillow mixes in his favorite poem, “The Genius Of The Crowd” – by Charles Bukowski – then ends with an Iron Elbows track, which is Mr. Mint and his best friend, Zac Trainor, making noise together, something they do pretty darn well together.

Episode 56 – Zachelor Weekend (Watercolor – D. Hixon)

In late April I organized a Bachelor Party for one of my best friends, Zac. We’ve worked together, jammed together, jammed together some more, and have been consistent partners in mischief and art. In celebration of his upcoming wedding we rented a house with friends in New Hampshire on Lake Winnipesaukee – and lived free while not dying for a long weekend in the Spring. A lot of music was made, played, and listened to – and this live mix was spun while overlooking the deep blue waters of the lake and snow capped mountains in the distance – during a weekend dedicated to getting lost with friends to a beat our own. The diversity speaks volumes for the company I was with. Live Free or Die indeed. Killer Weekend. Killer Company.
