  • Lightnin’ at the Redwood / Sun Trash in LA/OC/Dez

    Posted by on April 10, 2014

    Better believe Lightnin’ is excited that Sun Trash is once again on the horizon! Though the Vegas run was cancelled, we have gigs lined up May 8-10 in LA, OC and Palm Desert .  Same Sun Trash line-up as last year: Sean Wheeler, Nick Oliveri, Simon Stokes, Sexual Chocolate, Lightnin’, Wolf Woodcock & Anthony Sonetti!

    Shazam, goddamn. Lightnin’ has been all kinds of busy lately, studying music, reading books, mixing the new album, working on new shit with the Bad MFs and writing, writing, writing… always writing, goddammit.

    We’ve been making progress on a couple of new songs, plus a few select pieces from Lightnin’s rock opera, and some new covers.

    $atan’s Work is Never Done (Vol. II) is coming along nicely, with a little bit of mixing left to do, Lightnin’ estimates we’re about 75% finished with this muthafucka.  We’ll be back at it around midweek, doing my best to get that shit done.

    Our next performance is at Olystis Nights #24 with Clepto on March 22, then we rock Schmidy’s Tavern in Palm Desert on March 29 with Sean & Zander and Simon Stokes!

  • SKR Night at The Vu in Newhall

    Posted by on February 17, 2014

    Lightnin’ Woodcock & The Bad Muthafukkas return to Santa Clarita this Friday 2/21 for another SKR Night at The Vu in Newhall! The last one in September was such a great night; Lightnin’ expects this one to be even better, and hopes Perverse will actually perform this time.  Ian Down‘s new band (and Lightnin’s fellow labelmates) Go-Go Riot will deliver their premiere performance at this gig, don’t miss it.  It’s a bit of a drive for Angelenos, but Lightnin’ knows that a bunch of y’all live closer to The Vu than say, Downtown Los Angeles.  We had a great time playing with Henchmen at Spike’s Bar in Rosemead last week, looking forward to sharing the stage with them again on Friday.  We also had a great time with The Dogmen at Loaded last week, check those boys out if ever you get a chance.


    Then Sunday 2/23 we’re at the Redwood Bar in DTLA with Yours Cruelly and Pizza Wolf! Lightnin’ is getting it done early that night, starting at 10 PM.  Lightnin’ realizes it has been a while since I’ve done any blogging or road shows… I’m working on more new shit, plus we’re mixing $atan’s Work Is Never Done (Vol. II) and hopefully there will be some news to report soon on those fronts.  In the meantime, keep on smoking them joints; Lightnin’ loves y’all, gawdemit.

    We had a great time performing at Hugh Asnen‘s Gender-Fest! Cafe NELA is a cool spot to play, Lightnin’ is looking forward to getting back in there soon.  Hope your year is off to a goddamn good start.

  • DTLA and Cypress Park

    Shazam, goddamn… It’s a brand new year!  Lightnin’ has been laying low for a couple of weeks, catching up on some long overdue drug consumption, spending time with family and making progress on the opera I’ve been working on.   We’re kicking off the year with a couple of performances this coming week: first, a solo performance at The Escondite in DTLA on Wednesday, 1/8/2014 and then the Bad Muthafuggas are reconvening for Gender-Fest at Cafe NELA in Cypress Park on Saturday 1/11/2014.  Gender-Fest is a 3 day festival curated by Hugh Asnen (of Hi-Zs), celebrating his upcoming documentary.

    Lightnin’ is excited to get back onstage after this break.. and hopefully we’ll get to work on finishing the new LP $atan’s Work is Never Done (Vol II) which needs to be mixed and mastered.  Lightnin’ was hopeful that it would be completed in 2013,  but the tracking was completed just a few weeks ago. In the meantime, this goddamn opera ain’t gonna write itself… time to get back to work! Lightnin’ loves you all.

    Monday Nov 23 we’re doing a late performance at Viper Room around midnight!  Then on Tuesday Nov 24 Lightnin’ is gonna drag myself out to a perform solo at Hyperion Public in Silver Lake for the first time.  I mean, Lightnin’ has gotten drunk there, but ain’t never played there. Probably performing around 11 PM, playing some slide guitar blues… should help Lightnin’ to feel a lil better.
