Sasquatch and the Sick A Billys, Live from Wormtown, 2003
From September of 2003 we hunt down and capture the legendary Sasquatch and his Sick A Billys. Hailing from Providence I first saw this man, real name David Podsnap, at Vincent's. He was unlike any performer I'd seen prior. The buzz was heavy about this guy who played like a possessed demon, wildly strumming his guitar, screaming into the mic, howling at his audience. His shows often left both club owners and fans awestruck. Sometimes from the music and sometimes from his antics, which eventually led to a ban from Ralph's Diner Stage. Undaunted, he found other clubs in the city that would allow his band to perform namely The Lucky Dog on Green Street where he layed out his cards for years afterwards. He released numerous recordings on CD over the years since this interview and now can be found at his Nightclub/restaurant in Warren RI called Galactic Theatre. A little more reserved than he was in his early days, you can still see him perform today at occasional gigs but when the music starts, you'll see the side of him that made him a legend.
