Over the Weekend: Graffiti, Wiener Dogs and "Scottsdale Bars"
By Jonathan McNamara
This weekend got underway with a gift for us all from 103.9 The Edge's Craven Moorehead.
The Skapunk show host parodied "Handlebars" by The Flobots brining us "Scottsdale Bars" by the Blobots. The song which is currently in rotation on 103.9 The Edge crams an unprecedented amount of stereotypical jokes about dating in Scottsdale into as is possible in its three minutes of play. Give the song a listen courtesy of Craven Moorehead and Up on the Sun.
