About this Episode

This time the GCP guys sat down for a fun conversation with Jason and Tim, members of the PNW band ANTIHERO. I has been together for 5 years, though Jason and Tim have been playing for years together. You can find more information about the band on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

00:30 – Jason talks about the first time he threw his drum sticks out to the crowd, Justin welcomes Robo Brogan, and reflects on the last time he saw ANTIHERO live. The guys talk about how they’ve been doing, changes that have been going on lately with the band, and the interesting experience they had playing at The Stone Gate. They share what the purpose of a drum shield is, how long ANTOHERO has been around, and Jason talks about when they first started playing together.

18:04 – They talk about joining Dollar Store Cowboys, shifting to the Atomic Outlaws Band, and only playing with people they know. They talk about lighting things on fire when they play, how Tacoma ports are one of the top 10 cleanest ports in America, and Scott shares his love of conspiracy theories. Justin talks about talking Flat Earth with Mark Sargent, all share their love of Art Bell, and Justin gives props to the food at The Church Cantina in Tacoma.

33:17 – Justin jumps into Is It Tacoma, they discuss where Lynyrd Skynyrd memorabilia would be found in the PNW, and what drugs are most popular in places between Tacoma and Gig Harbor. Justin reveals what story was from Tacoma, they discuss if it was an inside job, and Tim talks about the roadies the band has had in the past. They talk about having $40,000 work of instruments stolen by someone busting through the side of the house, how they ended up getting some of it back, and Jason talks about buying an RV.

55:28 – Justin thanks the guys for sitting down for a conversation, Scott encourages them to let their kids join the band, and Tim talks about the band he started during Covid. Justin talks about when he moved to Arizona, why he came back to Seattle, and encourages the guys to float. They discuss how the food in Portland gets extra stars because of where it’s served at, starting the glam band Beauty School Drop Outs back in the day, and Jeff talks about getting his first Judas Priest album.

Thanks Jason and Tim for joining the guys for an awesome conversation!
