Bullseye with Jesse Thorn
Bullseye with Jesse Thorn
Bullseye (formerly known as The Sound of Young America) is a weekly celebration of the best of arts and
culture. Host Jesse Thorn sifts the wheat from the chaff to bring listeners in-depth interviews with the
most revered and revolutionary minds in our culture.
The show is carried by public radio stations around the country, and was the first public radio program
west of the Mississippi to podcast. It has received plaudits from publications like Time Magazine (which
called it "Pick of the Podcasts") and Salon.com. It was also honored by the iTunes editorial staff as a
"classic" Best of iTunes selection. Since April 2013, the show has been distributed by NPR.

Macy has described himself as "sort of a Middle American, WASPy, Lutheran kind of guy... Everyman".
Macy has won two Emmy Awards and a Screen Actors Guild Award throughout his career. Since 2011, he has played the main character in the Showtime television series Shameless. Macy and actress Felicity Huffman have been married since 1997.
Chicano Batman
Chicano Batman
Chicano Batman (Los Angeles, CA) is your sonic outlet from monotony back into the soul. Ethnomusicologists in their own right, they are students of rhythm, globe trotting on a quest to reclaim and represent the musical roots of their past generations.

The band's sound draws from a broad spectrum of influences ranging from 60s Tropicalia, samba, spacey psychedelia, to slow-jam soul with a pinch of surf-rock cumbia. In homage to their favorite Latin American soul groups of the 70s, the quartet uniforms their act in retro ruffled-tuxedo shirts from a thrift store near you.

Chicano Batman is more than a musical entity but an adventurous and opinionated group, who feeds off of community, afro-centricity and bolillos, on a mission to bring the overlooked to the forefront.

"Like Thee Midniters, Os Mutantes, and Love. Chicano Batman can take from any kind of music and make it completely and soulfully their own. If there's a better superpower for a band to have, I can't think of it." – LA Weekly

"Alternating between psychedelic rancheros, turbo-charged cumbias and Blaxploitation-meets–Sir Douglas Quintet soul fusions, a Chicano Batman show has more changes than James Brown had sequined capes." – Wax Poetics

"Chicano Batman is the sound of local Latino music in the 21st century." – KCET

"...the band took the Voodoo Fest crowd on a magical mystery tour of wah-wah funk, Latin percussion and squeedly, spacey effects-laden organ that felt like a pleasure cruise to the outer limits." – The Times Picayune
