Friday May 21, 2021! Best Friends Club is gonna take the summer off from our “big show” series (but will still post video content periodically) and we’re going out with a bang! We’ve got the great Cryptkeeper Five streaming a full set with Tim and Dim from Honah Lee and The Wild Honey Collective opening things up. After the show we’ll be broadcasting video of The Plurals Futurospective CD release party at Mac’s Bar from May 21, 2011 i.e. 10 years later to the day! This album was very important to the band and the label, and the video is a riot. Check it all out at 7 PM, Friday 5/21 at bestfriendsclub.us or on facebook.
And HERE is an article written about BFC and the show, thanks to City Pulse!
Mark your calendars, we’ve got a rager planned for Best Friends Club kinda sorta in honor of Tim Hoh on March 26th!

Streaming at 9 PM, Friday 3/26 at bestfriendsclub.us!
Friday February 12 at 9 PM EST we’ll be hosting a Valentine’s Day streaming event at bestfriendsclub.us with When Particles Collide, Tim Hoh, Matt Witte, The Wild Honey Collective and more! The show is free to watch but you’ve gotta sign up to chat. Party party!
Friday February 5 – tonight! – 9 PM EST, The Wild Honey Collective streams a set at the Best Friends Club facebook group with special guest Patty PerShayla! Join the group, join the party, and party on!
You didn’t think we’d let COVID take away GTG Fest did ya? The 13th annual GTG Fest will be coming to you SATURDAY OCTOBER 10, following you on your mobile devices, lurking in the corner of your home on your smart TV, somehow popping up on that confusingly not-discarded Windows 98 Gateway tower that hasn’t been connected to the internet since 2001… EVERYWHERE!
Did I make watching a livestream briefly sound a little exciting? Well, we’re gonna do our best to bring some of the magical GTG Fest chaos to the streams. This thing’ll be streaming live from 4-10 at the GTG facebook page AND on the GTGRecordsTV youtube channel for all you fellow facebook haters out there. The show must go on!
SATURDAY OCTOBER 10 4 PM-10 PM EST
SCHEDULE: Wild Honey / Drinking Mercury 4:00-4:30 The Soods 4:30-5:00 Raymond Strife 5:00-5:30 Narc Out the Reds 5:30-6:00 Jeremy Porter 6:00-6:30 Marsha 6:30-7:00 Honah Lee 7:00-7:30 Hunky Newcomers 7:30-8:00 Invisible Cartoons 8:00-8:30 The Stick Arounds 8:30-9:00 Erotic Novels 9:00-9:30 The Plurals 9:30-10:00
That’s a fest, eh? Well, it’s what we’ve got! Just like Joe Biden. Hey, I kept this apolitical until now, that’s good for 2020, right? Vote for Biden on November 3rd or else you’re part of the problem of social regression, racial injustice, natural destruction, and general being a fucking asshole.
Hey! A new thing! Looks like we’ve finally been in this pandemic long enough that some of our restless, old, show-playin’ GTG hearts are adapting to the times.
Best Friends Club is a live-streaming, live venue substitute curated by Tommy Plural, Raymond Strife, Jim Graz, & Tim Hoh.
You must join the group to join in the fun. In an effort to bring you “live music”, all performances will be streamed live and taken down within 24 hours of original broadcast. “Doors” will open 30 minutes before the music and we encourage you to engage, socialize, and support in the group and on the live-stream feeds.
These events will be free to all, but support is heavily suggested via tipping and online merch sales. We encourage you to share this group with friends and help us create a unique built-in-scene for performers and all friends of music.
This is not a space to advertise or share links. This is a space to enjoy and support “live music” in the era of no shows, and is intended to be treated like a live venue.
Our first show is this Thursday, July 1, hosted by GTG Records, featuring Nicholas Weltschmerz, Tim Hoh, and the official debut of The Wild Honey Collective, a new more folk-oriented project-kinda-sorta-Drinking-Mercury-offshoot from Tommy Plural, Timmy Rodriguez, and Danielle Gyger.
