What I’m Currently Spinning: Diarrhea Planet

I’m going to be the 1 millionth person to open with a line about this band name. So deal. Once in a while, you hear a band name and think: “Really? That’s what they’re called?” Well, I had that same reaction when I first heard about Diarrhea Planet. I got over it after I saw one of their shows.

I’ve seen this band a handful of times this Summer and let me tell you, they’re so much fun live! First of all, they have like a hundred guitarists (jk, it’s like 4) and you can tell they really love what they do. It’s refreshing to see a band have that much fun on stage. These guys are legit.

My favorite song is Ghost With A Boner, but off of their new recordĀ I’m Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams (out now!), I tend to gravitate toward “Babyhead,” “Ugliest Son,” “Separations” and “Kids.”

Here are some pictures from the shows I went to:
Boston, MA

San Francisco, CA


New York, NY

Brooklyn, NY

Basically a lot of crowd surfing happens.

Of course, I have to end with their greatest cover ever. Born to Run with Patrick Stickles of Titus Andronicus.


So that ends my little love post to Diarrhea Planet. Go give them a listen.
