Hey y’all, my name is Marty Ploy. I have been doing DIY punk shows for over ten years (a majority of them in Southern California). I also am one of the curators of the über-stellar Awesome Fest in San Diego, every year.
If picking out songs for a podcast was a sport, consider me OJ Simpson, cause I’m killin’ it!
I picked these bands cause I’m a huge fan of new bands and old favorites: everything from Hickey to The Slow Death to Sass Dragons to The Manix. Do yourself a favor and check this out!
Anyone who knows me is well aware of my love for making mixes. I love nothing more than getting hyped on a new record or a new band. These are some of the damies I been super bumpin’ in my headphones as of late. Some senior citizens and some booster seats; all are worthy of sharing with y’all. Enjoy.
