Mob City premieres TONIGHT!
Posted 12/4/2013 8:25:00 PM

I went to Los Angeles last month to get a sneak peek at TNT's new drama MOB CITY. It's awesome! It's set in 1940s L.A. (I adore the glamorous era of the 1940s!) and this show has the perfect "film noir" feel, which I absolutely loved. Much of that noir vibe is thanks to creator/director/producer Frank Darabont - yes, Walking Dead fans, that same director - whose story of mobsters versus cops balances the real and the fictional.

I had a chance to speak with a couple of the cast members, including Ed Burns who plays Bugsy Siegel [who was a real deal mobster back in the 1940s] and Robert Knepper who plays Sid Rothman. Listen to my chat with them, and check out the 2-hour premiere of Mob City tonight at 9pm on TNT! Mark your calendar for next Wednesday, when this 3-part event continues....

Jaxon's Interviews:

Mo Lowda & The Humble is one of the coolest band names we've seen to date, which is why they are April's Local Shots Artist of the Month! ...Kidding- though the name is groovy, the music is a way better reason to check these guys out. The Temple U. trio gained a lot of traction after the release of their first full-length record Curse The Weather, building upon their established reputation as one of the best alt-rock bands in the city. Today we played the track "The Way Home"; stream it now, and get show dates plus a whole lot more on the Artist of the Month page.

Tunage on the Local Shots Podcast is brought to you today by Goodnight Lights! This song, which has an excellent 90s-fuzz vibe, is called "Convinced" and it'll be included on their upcoming EP - keep an eye on goodnight-lights.com for more info on that release. Check out the brand spankin' new video for the track below. Their next show is this Friday at The Fire; get details HERE.

Looking to take advantage of the amazing weather forecasted for this weekend? Here's another show that we on the Local Shots Podcast recommend: Soraia will be playing the V Fund Benefit tomorrow at the Robbinsville Indoor Stadium in NJ! Also catch Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes and John Eddie there - tickets are available HERE. Check out more show dates on Soraia.com. Here's a song off the record In The Valley Of Love And Guns called "Want What I Want".

 
What's up Philly? Jaxon here. Check out my show weekday afternoons from 3-7 on the Mighty MMR. We'll have Jaxon's iPod, the Mystery Theme and even the occasional game of Rock, Paper, Scissors. What better way to enjoy that contact high you scored while listening to Pierre?
