Baked and fried in the Sonoran Desert and New York City, WASTOIDS is a throwback to the halcyon days when stoned teenagers could stay up all night watching music videos, loopy comedy, and arty strangeness on the TV set. And now WASTOIDS has crash landed on Night Flight Plus as a 4-episode anthology series. Featuring live performances by the country-tinged shoegaze band Wednesday, power poppers Supercrush, punk metal band Portrayal of Guilt, alt-poppers Reptaliens, and more, segments from Argentinian video artist Salvador Cresta, a funeral parlor themed coffee shop tour from “cholo goth” pioneer Dave Parley (Meld Amor/Prayers), and much more demented fun, WASTOIDS presents a lo-fi fever dream, available only on Night Flight Plus.

EPISODE 1: Scraping your brain like resin. In the debut episode of WASTOIDS, your couch spud host Chris tunes into clips from Seattle power pop band Supercrush and psych-pop collective Astrologer, featuring Don Bolles of The Germs. Plus, Natasha calls into the 1-877-WASTOIDS hotline to discuss the arcane cheese smells of NYC, and the Shit4Brainz skate crew shares a clip from their full-length video 4×4 of Thomas de Carpio shredding.
EPISODE 2: Remember that freaky movie Fire in the Sky, about the dude who got abducted by aliens? This one’s like that, only dumber. Join WASTOID Chris and his extraterrestrial pals as they check out music from Los Angeles garage rockers Smirk and Texas screamo/noise/hardcore band Portrayal of Guilt. Plus, a tour through the desert with far out photographer Autumn Kidd, and more wacky fun.
EPISODE 3: There’s a problem with WASTOID Chris’ new amp—it’s haunted by a heavy metal ghost in search of his long lost stash. Hop on the couch with this friendly ghost and catch videos from Asheville country shoegazers Wednesday and Tacoma thrash titans Denial of Life. Then, Smokey calls 1-877-WASTOIDS hotline with a disturbing call and Uncle Remo shares a trippy animated clip celebrating a “New Age Princess.”
EPISODE 4: WASTOIDS Chris logs on to “Sleazy Match” to meet the girl of his dreams and winds up getting more than he bargained for. Plop down and tune into the smooth sounds of California’s Dante Elephante and the woozy psych pop of Seattle’s Reptaliens, recorded live in the 850 W Lincoln studio. Plus, Dave Parley (MeldAmor/Prayers) gives a tour of his funeral-theme coffee shop Velorio (en español) and Argentinean video artist Salvador Cresta explains his DIY art process.
