In this special edition of 1st Sunday at The Ruby Room, in Oakland, CA., Jello Biafra will join Jesse Luscious (The Criminals, The Frisk, Blatz) and spin hunks of rotating petroleum products known as "records."
Jello will be spinning the Roots of the Roots: Garage! Soul! Surf! Dementia! Plus a bit of Punk (all obscure)!
Jesse, on the other hand, will be spinning nothing but Icona Pop and Lady Gaga. If you're lucky.
As always, $1 Hamm's all night with the East Bay's best bartender, Billy Joe!

04/17/14: Jello Biafra featured on the latest episode of FUSE TV's show "CRATE DIGGERS"
From Fuse TV:
The long career of Jello Biafra knows no bounds. Along with fronting iconic punk band the Dead Kennedys, he's a celebrated spoken-word artist, ran for president in 2000 and generally sticks up his middle finger at anything crappy. He's also an avid record collector, and thus the star of this latest installment of Fuse's digital series Crate Diggers.
