Band Geek

It’s a “Hole” lotta fun this week when we crossover with our RiotCast buds Rob Sprance and Chris Fortney from ‘The Glory Hole’. We get an incredible amount of information about Rob’s colon, go round the room with our go to Karaoke jams, and learn why macaroon’s are important for picking a wedding venue. Then Rob and Chris step it up with performances from some Fine Young Cannibals, Tom Petty, Matthew Sweet, and Weezer.

Dressed as England's loudest band, The Band Geeks perform a 5 song set of music from our favorite film, This Is Spinal Tap.  This is a VERY important movie for us so we took great care in getting it right, from the bad guitar solos, all the way down to the pelvic thrusts. Such a fine line between stupid and clever.
