Skyler Cross wants to "Bring the Music to Greenwood" with a new All-Ages Music Venue

Mr. Cross has a Kickstarter going to raise money for a new All-Ages Live Music Venue in Greenwood, IN. In this episode, we ask all the important questions, starting with numero uno: Is 'Skyler Cross' your real name, dude? Come on. Really?

SkyCro also talks about the terrible injustices and atrocities going on in the Greenwood, IN music scene, and the new crazy adventure he's embarking upon. And you're invited!.

Greenwood Punk Rock

Skyler Cross talks about his brand new all-ages music venue, recording studio, practice space, community punk rock rec room known as... well, he hasn't decided on a name yet. And he hasn't exactly got all the money he needs to open the darned thing.

But Skyler has a dream. And a Kickstarter. And a whole bunch of friends and the strong Greenwood Punk Rock community who are tired of not having a cool place to go hang out and see shows. Not just Punk Rock shows. But all kinds of shows. Country and Western.

Listen to the episode to find out how you can help Skyler get this new all-ages music venue off the ground in Greenwood.

Also check out his Kickstarter at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1570502390/bring-the-music-to-greenwood

Quotes from the Cross (Skyler Cross, That Is)

“Let's stop outsourcing our music, and Help us create this crazy adventure!”

“The Greenwood area is not very friendly to new entrepreneurs. It's very expensive. But it’s the greatest place to have a venue.”

“The idea is to get 90 people a week in the venue for shows at about $10 a ticket.”

“It's going to start out very small.”

GreenfieldBlues on Parascope

Chris Brake Show takes to Parascope to talk with some cool folks like GreenfieldBlues!

RIP Stephanie

Our hearts, thoughts, prayers, and everything go out to Monotone Matt over the loss of his wife Stephanie. We'll miss Giggles and we're glad we got to know her at least a little bit. Send your condolences to Matt on Parascope @Monomat.

Captain Tonz contacted us asking to come on the show and tell a bunch of insane Pirate stories. The answer was clear: yes.

Welcome to episode 86, where we talk to a retired Pirate and author of 13th Day, and hear some war stories. Turns out, the Pirate stories are hilarious, they don't smuggle sex slaves, and Pirates are actually the good guys.

ALSO: Wacky tales from the Bone Fags garage "studio." PLUS: Pregnant wives, bastard daddy zombie bass players, Skatopia's Backwoods Blowout Brandon's Birthday Bowl Bash #XVIXX2X, Dr. Robert quits the band, Paul Zero fills in for him, and Bill Manspeaker heckles this dude Paul Zero.

I'm talking nonstop, hardcore heckles this guy. Throwing chit, the whole bit. This happened the entire time we played. Good old Paul Zero. Whatever happened to that guy?

Hey you book publisher person: you should publish this guy’s auto-biography. It’s the most interesting stories you’ll ever hear.

Captain Anthony Tonz (pronounced "Ant-ony") Tonz ran away from home at 14, lurched a ride off the coast in a ship (not a boat, a ship) and proceeded to have an endless series of wild, wild journeys, experiences, and yarns.

Our hero Captain Anthony Tonz returned to his homeland three years later, age 17: a full-blown, bonafide Pirate.

Want to know more? Well, you've got to listen to the episode you silly idiot!

Topics include:

smuggling things, people, camels, amber, government pirates, and holding a Pirate Record for over 120 years: this man stole two giant ships and sailed them somewhere else. He does this stuff because really important people pay him to do this stuff.

I'm talking Shieks. Look at this, taken from the official Captain Tonz site: CaptainTonz.com.

I've 'undertaken' missions on behalf of; Royalty, Shieks and Politicians.

I've 'assisted' in missions involving; President of the Philippines, Philippine Congress, MLF (Muslim Liberation Front), New Peoples Army Communist Rebels, Muammar Al-Ghaddafi, Goverment of Nigeria, the family of Prime Minister of Vietnam, CIA and various unmentionable orgs and gangsters.


Quotes from Captain Tonz

“stealing a ship has got to be the easiest thing you can do.”

He proceeds to tell us how to steal a ship.

He also tells the classic YANBO heist, and how he was able to steal two ships at the same time from one Shiek for another Shiek.


“i’ll tell you something no one else will tell you about Somali pirates.”

We get the real story of Captain Philips.

Reporter murdered, kids fingers falling off due to toxic waste

There's a bunch of toxic waste somewhere and Tonz knows where. It's deep under the sea. And Tonz knows who did it, too. And if someone doesn't clean it up, the whole area will be destroyed. It's making children's fingers fall off, dude.

its a ticking time bomb. the indian ocean is going to be destroyed. your kids’ fingers will fall off.

Let's get this thing cleaned up, yeah?

More info:


Not a fan of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Says real Pirates are nothing like that.

Turns out pirates are just big old sweethearts. Kick back and enjoy hearing about a real pirate... Captain Anthony Tonz.

"chris brake announced today that Indianapolis has the #1 largest sporting event in the world."

#1. Sporting event. In the World.

Rodwell's barber might not believe it, but that doesn't matter. Indianapolis still holds the title for the #1 Sporting Event in the World. And that happened all live on the Chris Brake Show. Historic.
