MIKE HERRERA OF MXPX AND MXPX BEER

If you have been alive, and even minimally associated with underground Christian music, you've heard of MxPx. They were Christian punk before that even existed. Mike Herrera of MxPx joins Matt and Toby in studio while Toby is in Seattle for a Matt & Toby show. They talk about sound guys, tour managers, and getting kicked off shows for smoking.

Imagine that you are on a cruise ship. Not just any cruise ship—New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski's Party Ship, run by Norwegian Cruise Line. The smell of the briney sea mingles with the smell of bro sweat and frozen margaritas. The sun beams down onto the deck, an intoxicating catalyst. All is well. Nobody has chest hair. You hear somebody shout "69" a few feet away; a second later, the inimitable sound of tin on skull, a crushed Natty Lite can to the dome. The host is in his element. All is well.

EVANGELIZING STRIP CLUBS
