New Camp Freddy Radio
New Camp Freddy Radio. I have no idea why the first video keeps going unavailable! It's making me crazy!!! I'm working on it. In other news, I just got back from Miami and Montreal. Winter Music Conference was insane! Great new music and parties everywhere I turned. However, the best show of the week had to be in Montreal at Opera. Skribble and I are making our way to Las Vegas this Friday for a show at Rain at The Palms Hotel. Come by if you are in the area. This seems like a good time for a Q & A, so if you have them, let them fly...

Dates & Return of Spread TV
Just getting ready to get out of here and go to Miami FLA for a couple of dates with DJ Skribble. We are doing three shows at The Winter Music Conference. The whole conference celebrates new artists and DJs set within a week long party atmosphere in South Beach. Skribble and I are playing at the following locations:
3/26 Gransevoort Pool/2pm
3/27 Dr. Feelgood's/12am
Then we roll up to Montreal on the 29th for an appearance at Opera.
New Season Of Spread TV:
Spread TV starts up again on April 10th. Dave Mustaine was to be one of our guests, but after talking with him for a while, it was clear to everybody that we should do a full hour with him and make him the sole guest. So, 4/10 is a full hour with Dave Mustaine of Megadeth!

SpreadTV, Camp Freddy Contest & Dates
(I really have the best job in the world!) Stuff cranking over here. We are getting ready to re-launch SPREAD TV. Yes, the show went from Spread Entertainment to Spread and now to SPREAD TV. It was a necessary move as all of the "Spreads" get a little confusing to people. Now it should be clear that there is SPREAD TV, Spread Radio Live and The Spread Group. They all fall under The Spread Entertainment umbrella. Coming up on the next few episodes in April we have none other than Dave Mustaine form Megadeth, Margaret Cho and Shelly Sprague, the hot counselor from Celebrity Rehab. Shelly heard that I was considering relapsing just to check in and be counseled by her, so she agreed to be on the show to help me keep it together. Always giving back that Shelly! Dave Mustaine? Are you kidding? We have been trying to get him as a guest since we started up, so we couldn't be more pumped about his appearance. Margaret is a friend of the show and we can't wait to have her back. All this and new music, arts and issues... Plus, our set will be totally revamped. I know that some people have complained that we aren't over at The Dragonfly anymore, but hey... We don't own that place and they were kind enough to let us run the show from there for quite a long time.
Tomorrow Billy and I are back for an all new Camp Freddy Radio. As you know, Camp Freddy, the band, are doing a residency at LA's Roxy Theater during the month of May, every Thursday night. We have decided to do a contest to find our opening acts. DO NOT ask me directly via MySpace or 6767 as the decision is not mine alone to make. (Yes, I have been hit up about this already by many bands. I appreciate the enthusiasm, but we have to keep it fair!)
So here's the deal:
Send all submissions to RoxyContest@mac.com
You MUST include: three songs, 2 youtube videos, a myspace page or a website, a mini-bio and a photo. A radius clause will be in place so the bands performing cannot have anything booked for 30 days within a 30 mile radius. Bands must be available to play any of the five Thursdays in May.
Submission cut off is March 27th, 2008…and winners will be notified April 1st, 2008.
Winter Music Conference in Miami, FLA 3/25-3/29 (with Skribble)
Rain in Las Vegas 4/4 (with Skribble)
Bacardi Live in Miami 4/19 (with Skribble)
Orlando 4/21 (with Skribble)
Roxy in LA every Thursday in May (Camp Freddy)
Atlantic City 5/24 (with Skribble)

Here is last week's Camp Freddy Radio. This Podcast has all the music included, which seemed like a great idea, but listening back, I'm not sure anymore. Thoughts? The shows have been captured by our friend Chase and he gets the audio from the Indie stream online. As a result the music sounds a little sketchy to me. So... Music or no music? If you wish to subscribe to the Podcast of CFR, just search Dave Navarro on iTunes and you can subscribe for free. Wake up and the show will be loaded in your iPod.
For old time's sake, here is a high bandwidth and unedited version of our trip to Vegas last year. This originally ran on SpreadTV but it came out dark and YouTube won't let us load it without deleting our account. If you decide to view this, be warned that it is for adults and has some colorful moments that some may find offensive.
Speaking of SpreadTV, we are just a few short weeks away from being back in full force. We are currently enabling the ability to embed the shows wherever we want... Other pages, MySpace, 6767, etc. In fact, you will be able to as well!

CF & Chicago
Hello... It has been a while since I have come here... Partly because I have been extremely busy and partly because there really hasn't been much going on, if that makes any sense! To begin with, here is last week's Camp Freddy Radio. This should be the last one without music as I have decided to include the music from here on out. Speaking of Camp Freddy... Tonight we are performing at The Knitting Factory in Hollywood for the Give Me Shelter Charity. The charity creates housing for kids that have nowhere to go after being in foster care. This afternoon will be all about brushing up on all the songs we will be doing tonight. We go on around 11:30pm.
Tomorrow night I am in Chicago with DJ Skribble at Enclave. This is gonna be a gnarly couple of days of travel but I am sure that I will somehow make it in to Indie to do another Camp Freddy Radio. In the world of Skribble and I... We just got done in the studio working with our pal, J Mellow, cutting some new tracks for his record. I'll post them once they are done and mixed.

As for the Top Ten List, I am working on it!
1. Appear as a plaintiff on The People's Court
Here is the Smashing Pumpkins' clip for Superchrist. It features Spread Group client and star of Broken, Sasha Grey. When I first watched this, I thought it was the craziest thing... I was like, "Huh? Have these guys totally lost their minds?" After a day or so, all the imagery from this kept creeping back into my psyche and I was compelled to go back and watch it again. Then I found myself watching it again and again. I have come to realize that this is probably one of the most amazing things I have ever seen! Especially in this day... It's LONG, dark, sexy, bizarre, unique and atypical, the antithesis of watered down and polished crap. It's kind of like a look into Corgan's mind without really even seeing much of him. The video is totally inspiring... I fuckin' love it:

Here is last week's Camp Freddy Radio. This is our monthly episode of Hair Metal bands... Always a favorite!
Something cool that I am looking forward to... I will be joining team bodog.com this year as a participant in the 2008 World Series of Poker. I am absolutely certain that I will get hammered early on in the games. I figure that this is probably the only sporting championship that I will ever be a contender in. I'm pretty sure that I'll never get to the Super Bowl or the World Series so I may as well try my luck at the tables. The WSOP is July 3rd in Las Vegas at The Rio.
Not much else happening. Billy and I will be in next Saturday for a new Camp Freddy Radio. Spread is dark for the next three weeks so we can upgrade our set and equipment and tech stuff.
In other news: Sadly, Winona Ryder recently got married. There goes #4 on the "Top 10 Things To Do Before I Die" list. ;) J/K
