For the first time ever, the At Night mobile truck goes live, on site at a club! You'll drink the beers, smell the smoke*, and rock out to the music, just as it happened.

The guest is self-described "progressive space rock" band Gnomonaut, who perform tracks from their debut album, The Chronocosm. Songs performed include "Bekajamir," "ManBearPig," "Beard Mudding (1/4)," and "The Chronocosm."

But first, shred guitar instructor Doug Steele calls in to talk about a special offer for those who want to learn Sammy Hagar-era Van Halen songs. 42 minutes. NOTE: Explicit language.

Art's comments: "As a savvy broadcaster, I know the path to a massive listenership is paved with instrumental progressive rock. Its appeal is as universal as chocolate ice cream. Really, though, this makes two episodes in a row where I feel almost totally satisfied with the end result. I've listened to this one twice myself. This show is definitely improving."

NOTE: Explicit language, and IN STEREO, where available!

* Actually most Atlanta bars have a no smoking policy now, but for effect, we'll pretend it was smoky.

Is Chaz Bono's sex change bringing about the end times? It's "The Politically Incorrect Minute" as Art ponders the possibility when he recounts a discussion with a Buy Gold kiosk operator at the mall.

Next, Doug Steele returns to talk about his new job as guitarist for the progressive metal band Alarum and their upcoming Australian and European tours. 49 minutes.

Art's comments: "I would swear this show is getting better and better. Doug has been one of the most popular guests so far and he doesn't disappoint this go-around, either. His story of achieving his dream in his 40's is pretty inspiring."
