Keeping up with Dave…

Oct 07

You know, I have hugged this man….countless times.  How come I didn’t think of this?  I didn’t know this was an option.  I’m really kicking myself right now….


Dave joined Chelsea Handler on a Sirius XM radio show to promote her upcoming Netflix show “Uganda Be Kidding Me”.  This interview will play on Thursday, October 9 – here’s a link to read up more about the interview and here are a few more snapshots:

Dave along with 27 other artists is a part of “The Impossible Orchestra” to launch the all new BBC music season and have covered the Beach Boys’ ‘God Only Knows’.  You can watch here and read more about it here:


I meant to include this in my update yesterday. Dave will be in the new documentary Salad Days: A Decade Of Punk In Washington, DC (1980-90) which is a film about the Washington, DC hardcore scene in the 1980s. I’m really looking forward to seeing this film.  Here’s a small clip featuring Dave in the film:



Speaking of documentaries: My friend, Jenni Matz, has finally completed her documentary “Rye Coalition: The Story of the Hard Luck Live” and she’s currently touring around the states with it and winning awards at every single film festival it’s picked to play at.  It’s really kind of awesome what she’s done.

If you’re not sure what I’m talking about, Rye Coalition is a band from Jersey City, New Jersey, and back around 2003, Dave Grohl produced their album, ‘Curses’.  This documentary follows the band’s life from beginning to end and includes quite a bit of footage of Dave as well.  I encourage you to see it for many reasons… A.) They’re an amazing band, B.) the documentary is really great,  C.) Dave, D.) Those guys are my friends/brothers and,  E.) Yours truly has a credit in the movie as well.  (!)  Check out the trailer below and then check out the screening dates and the website and try to go catch it if it’s playing in your town…and tell Jenni that Leecy sent you.
