I seem to be a creature of habit. Due to being super busy I neglected to post my own playlist for October, and while compiling the November one a song came up that I incorrectly thought I had previously included in a past playlist (“Solitude” by Girls). So while I did not find that song on any of my past playlists I did find that I didn’t post playlists right around the same times last year and this year. This year it was October, and last year it was November. This year October and November may as well have been one month. Octember? Noctember? Maybe Ovtember? I think I like Ovtember, I’m officially declaring October and November “Ovtember,” at least for the purpose of the combining of my playlists for these two months. This year my excuse was all of the traveling and the fact that I was trying to decide on three Halloween costumes, but mostly the traveling. In fact I’m out of town as I’m putting this together as we speak (write?). There was so much back and forth that a couple of the cities started running together.
I knew it was bad when one day I just stopped in front of my home in L.A.’s door upon returning from a trip and instead of mindlessly inserting the key and unlocking my door as I might usually do, I stopped and looked down at my keys a little unsure of which key unlocked this particular front door. I’ve lived in the same place for the past five years, mind you. Don’t worry though, I still managed to have more than my share of fun amidst all of this work.
For At the Tavern, other misc. occasions, and intraffik radio related things I constantly have to put together playlists, so instead of trying to go through all of the music I’ve selected for those I’ll provide you with a sampling of what I fell asleep to in the last couple of months.
So here is my “What I Fell Asleep to in Ovtember” and as with any of my previous “What I Fell Asleep to…” lists this is what I chose to fall asleep to, not what put me to sleep.
Jesus and the Mary Chain feat. Hope Sandoval – “Perfume”
Built to Spill – “Kicked it in the Sun”
Belly – “Full Moon, Empty Heart”
MC 5 – “Looking At You”
Miles Davis – “Blue in Green”
The Slow Club – “Giving Up on Love”
Ra Ra Riot – “Ghosts Under Rocks”
THE MO ODDS INVADE THE INTRAFFIKRADIO STUDIOS FOR THE THIRD WEEK OF THEIR INTRAFFIKRADIO.COM NOVEMBER RESIDENCY
Intraffik Radio will be selecting a different local LA band each month as their Monthly Resident Online Radio Band (we do believe that we might be pioneers in this endeavor). Each week the selected band will get to take over the station and act as Guest DJs for the month, playing all of the music they’re into and that influenced them. They will also get to invite other local bands on as guests, as well as play some live sets during a couple of the weeks.
WEEK THREE WITH THE MO-ODDS OUR VERY FIRST MONTHLY RESIDENT BAND FOR THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER…
Listen to www.intraffikradio.com today at 2pm for the re-broadcast of this episode. Click here to listen
In keeping with the spirit of community that intraffikradio is all about, we have asked the Mo Odds to introduces us via their residency to other bands in the LA music scene that they themselves are fans of, so this week the Mo Odds invited the High Life Cavaliers into the studio for an interview and a live performance. You’ll learn where the band name, High Life Cavaliers came from, where the band members (Max, Jon, and Jwyanza) each are from. You’ll also learn about what both bands like and don’t like about the L.A. music scene and what some of their guilty musical pleasures are.
You’ll hear live performances from each of the bands as well as lots of other great music.
The Mo Odds and High Life Cavaliers @ The Viper Room December 6th 9pm
High Life Cavaliers and The Black Boots @ The Old Towne Pub December 10th 9pm
The Mo Odds and Restavrant @Crazy Girls December 9th 9:30 pm

17. “Don’t Wanna Grow Up” – Tom Waits- Bone Machine
Marina Del Rey has been known for several decades as a popular enclave of Westside game-changers, oceanfront high-rises, a horny singles scene, and douchebags galore, but its the other side of the tracks which gleam: the live-aboard community of salty dogs who call their boats home, they are the unseen and proud living in the last bastion of affordable waterside life in Los Angeles.
While there does seem to be a significant ratio of coke-dealers and creepy old guys, the majority of these landlubbers are good men (and very few women) who trade in the typical housing situations of an apartment or home for a tiny 25-35 feet of a cozy cabin on the water. Below-the-line film guys, new-age gurus, cubicle dwellers, longshoremen, lucky students: the chosen few who take low rents and ultra sunny afternoons over renting out a room….and Jeff wasn’t going to last long with these people AT ALL.
And I don’t think he cared. Either that, or he was one stupid party animal, because he sure did all night long! And I had just the misfortune to be docked bow to bow with him. Not that I don’t party, oh how I do, but I’d just started a new gig at 20th Century Fox which started at 7am and Jeff and his crew were killing me with their crackhead talk: listening to Sublime, talking trash, laughing loudly and unbearably, I could hear every cuss word like it was in the closet.
My other neighbor Rob didn’t fret about it too much. A skateboarding, Jim Morrison-worshipping vato from Pico-Union, who moved to the Marina for a better life, he worked the night shift in Wilmington. See no evil, hear no evil.
There was Marcus, a nice, boisterous old man with a big jolly gut, a wild redbeard, and a smokers cough that woke me up every night as well. But that was a righteous excuse. This guy suffered badly and ran out of breath quickly with each trip to the bathroom or to the lockers. Many a moment would I see him leaning on the fence overlooking the boats in the marina, smoking, barely hanging on.
Oh, and then Karl. Karl owned the coolest vintage ship on our dock. Late 50’s one-of-a-kind pine and teak wood. It was glorious. He asked me a few times to wash his boat for extra cash. Rotund and shy, I must admit he was a shoo-in for the child-molestor type. A most judgmental observation, but I did get that vibe from him.
Jason, one of the local coke dealers who’s also a fantastic night lone sailor while ripped out of his mind, started getting really upset about Jeff. (more…)
