Welcome back Cleveland! Yeah, that’s right, we’re hitting you with the one-two punch of a two-episode week! It’s like we’re making up for lost time or something. But a double-episode week is very appropriate because today’s guests New Planet Trampoline are releasing a brand new epic double-LP titled “Dark Rides and Grim Visions” this weekend March 12th at The Happy Dog West.
So, we’ve been away for a while. Sometimes life just gets in the way, ya know? There were several holidays, birthdays, a lot of road tripping, and not a lot of free time for us to make new shows for you wonderful people. But we love the music scene here in Cleveland and we keep find more and more that we want to share with everyone. On top of that, we kept getting questions about when we’d be making more shows. So thank you to everyone who asked, you really helped push us along and out of our self-imposed winter hiatus. So once again, hit that Susbcribe link in the menu and keep your earballs peeled for some brand new stuff from your friendly neighborhood podcasters.
New Planet Trampoline’s Dark Rides and Grim Visions
Speaking of glorious returns, back to the matter at hand: New Planet Trampoline, who took a hiatus of their own and returned 2 years ago with a now legendary performance of Pink Floyd’s The Piper at the Gates of Dawn in it’s entirety at Pat’s in The Flats. Now, Matt and Charlie freely admit that they have something of an addiction when it comes to Pink Floyd, but they want to be very clear, their music runs much deeper than their biggest influence. We talked at length about their musical journey from kids in high school and early bands, music burnout, the loss of a dear friend, and then again finding the joy in their music. We also got a peek at the history of the Davenport Collective that we’ve heard so much about over the years.
