I had the pleasure of sitting down with Marcus Newstead the other night at Fister's practice space. We've become good friends recently through being co-workers but I'd never had a chance to talk to him in depth about his music. I invited him to come hang out and tell me all about his bands, upcoming shows, and even learned he did stand up comedy for a while.

If you'd like to spice up this episodes listening experience, take a drink every time Marcus mentions a band name.
