WARNING: This episode is not for the musically tepid or incurious.

Remember what it was like to hang out past midnight during the work week, drinking beer and listening to boundary-breaking music? Art had almost forgotten, too!

Del Venicci chats with Art in the parking lot of their Monday midnight show at club 529 in East Atlanta Village. The band discuss their connection to Italian opera, Andy Warhol's influence on their creative philosophy, and finger painting. Interwoven with the interview are songs from the set. 47 minutes

Art's comments: "When I saw Del Venicci's video for the song 'Shadow Braid,' I was quite impressed. Here was a band with not only a sonic but also an aesthetic vision, which virtually no band has today, and they were right here in Atlanta! As someone over 40 who is becoming accustomed to people under 32 not getting my references, I was also relieved when they knew who Bauhaus was.

"I don't know why I roll called every `80's alternative band in Atlanta I could think of, but I did. And I left out Impulse Ride and Liers in Wait. Music starts at about 9 minutes in."

Chelsea Lately  roundtable regular April Richardson makes the time to chat with Art. The Atlanta natives discuss the hick perception of their hometown, what the term "redneck" really means, and whether Los Angeles or Atlanta is the more truly segregated city.

Then they get down to show business! How did a girl from East Marietta get to Hollywood? Will April be part of her old boss Chelsea Handler's move to Netflix? After the climax of her podcast Go Bayside!  at the L.A. Podfest, what will be the topic and format of her next podcast?

This show also introduces a new series of public service announcements called "The Internet Cares." 1 hr. 5 mins.

Art's comments: "Interviewing a true TV personality, I decided the best approach was to just be myself - the same mistake I've made all my life! Really, though, it was quite nice of her to take the time to talk when she could be chatting with a huge name like Chris Hardwick. We may one day look back on this like an interview with a young Joan Rivers after her first few appearances on Ed Sullivan."
