Hey friends!
You may have heard the Weeds/ The Big C commercial featuring “Terrible Things” on the radio lately. The ad has been airing on major stations across the country and we hope to get those stations to ad “Terrible Things” into their rotation. If you want to help, give your radio station a call and request it. Since the commercial will only run this week, the sooner the better. After you’ve requested the song, leave a comment on my website saying which station you called and you’ll be entered to win the limited edition Brooklyn Bowl poster! Here’s a list of stations that have already added the track:


KEZE-96.9 River
Spokane, WA

Sandpoint, ID

Request here!

KTAO-101.9 Solar Radio
Taos, NM

Central Ohio

Does your house have a 1940’s or earlier feel inside and out? Are you in the NY/NJ area? We’re looking for a location to shoot the “Terrible Things” music video on 8/14 and 8/15. We’ll probably need 2 full days but possibly less. Here are the areas we need:

Outdoor garden, preferably with shed
Master Bedroom
Living Room
Dining Room

All decor must be 1940’s or earlier. A spacious area is necessary for shooting. If you’ve got a house that fits this description and you’re up for some fun, let me know as soon as possible!
