NO ENCORE #120 | For Us, It Is Five Shows Or None At All

Dave, Colm and Craig are back once again and getting used to this whole ‘all three guys present for the same episode’ schtick, so maybe that’ll catch on if we’re very lucky.

A packed episode of NO ENCORE takes a look at the huge and highly grim news story that rocked the music world and beyond. Meanwhile, the boys sidestep two major album releases to shine a light on one of the most inventive and daring pop records of the year.

ACT ONE: Reviews of gigs that Dave didn’t attend.

ACT TWO: The death of XXXTentacion and a most contentious fallout, YouTube makes waves, drill music is targeted once again and Akon looks to clean up his act.

ACT THREE: SOPHIE’s debut album is here, and with it the NO ENCORE verdict.

ACT FOUR: Songs of the Week with Paul McCartney, The Mountain Goats, Jay Rock, SZA, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj and Garth Brooks. Yes, him.
