On episode 16 of Alternative Discussion West host Ryan Banks welcomes John Snapp to the studio. We chat growing up in Antioch, and how John forms the bands Caught Red Handed and The Dragg while still in High School. We then explore the underground house party scene inside of east county and talk some of the local venues. After high school John pursues a film degree at University of Santa Cruz. Before leaving Santa Cruz and heading to Oakland, John joins forces with Scott Vicknair inside of the band Poor Bailey. Reaching great success inside of the local scene with their album "Pyrite & Gold", John reflects on some of the bands bigger shows and touring. After over 10 years inside the bay area music scene Poor Bailey slows down when Scott moves to the east coast. We learn about an unreleased album tentatively called "Happy Dead" and hundreds of other songs still waiting to be finished. We then switch gears to John's film career where he has directed music videos for bands such as Audrye Sessions, Dead To Me and ToyGuitar. Stick around to the end for a listen to one of John's latest musical projects, 5H3RIFF5.

Music is this episode provided by The Dragg, Poor Bailey & 5H3RIFF5
