We've had a few themed shows over the last month, so now it's time to bust back into a show of all new music. There's premieres galore on this weekend's installment, including new music from Prissy Clerks, Marijuana Deathsquads, Brute Heat, Rockford Mules, Meme, Phantom Tails and much more.

In the 6PM hour, Dark Dark Dark will treat us to an in-studio, performing material from their new album Who Needs Who.

And in the 7PM hour, Matt Linden, owner of new local record label Forged Artifacts, will give us the scoop on the project and its releases so far including Nice Purse, Olsen Twinns and Observer Drift. He'll also let us know the next record he'll be releasing and we'll get a first listen as well -- it's a biggie folks!
