All My Friends Are in Bar Bands
About This Show
Across over ten years of going to shows, I've met countless fascinating people that are joined together by the fact I love their music. This is a medium in which I look to find out the bigger picture, the extended story and the journey that brought them to where they are. No genre or topic is off limits. I'm David James Young - and all my friends are in bar bands.

Episode 82: My Friend Allison Weiss
For years, Georgia girl Allison Weiss would write, record and play music in her bedroom; completely unaware of the impact her songs and albums were having on the world outside. The magic of the internet meant her unique, earnest and catchy music was heard across the world; and it's brought her a surefire cult fanbase along the way. In May, Weiss and her backing band toured Australia for the very first time in support of lifetime friends of the show The Smith Street Band. We were able to steal the lady of the hour away for a hot minute before she took to the stage of the Enmore Theatre. With the precious time we had, we talked shop on MySpace days, getting in on the early days of crowdfunding and how Allison was into Plain White T's BEFORE it was cool. (It was never cool.)
Allison's new single, "Runaway," is out now. Check out the lyric video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jnj9wX-hMMY
