Patrick Gilchrist & Jared Gaines Introduce Their idobi Radio Show ‘The Mean Time’

Patrick Gilchrist Jared Gaines The Mean Time

There’s a time to be serious, and there’s a time for fun and games. Well, for Patrick Gilchrist—the charismatic vocalist of Not My Weekend—and Jared Gaines—the mastermind behind Rat Park, touring guitarist for Scary Kids Scaring Kids, and former Hopeless Records signee with his project Vaines—they never take life too seriously. In fact, they’re so laid back, they’re practically horizontal.

As Los Angeles transplants grinding in the music industry, the two have partnered up with idobi Radio to exclusively launch their new show titled The Mean Time. Episodes are scheduled to air every Tuesday at 6 PM ET/3 PM PT, with a podcast of the episode to follow at 7 PM ET/4 PM PT the same evening. Tune in every Tuesday to hear candid, and let’s face it, probably hilarious, stories about being aspiring musicians and living life in LA on the road to success.

In preparation for their debut episode airing on Tuesday, June 25, at 6 PM ET/3 PM PT, we asked the pair to share their top five emerging artists. But these two NEVER play by the rules and are practically writing their own rulebook as they go. Instead, they shared with us they’re Top 5 WORLD WARS… And spoiler alert, these two are predicting the future over here! 

At this point, if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em!

In a video, Gilchrist shares, “idobi has asked us to do a top five of something.”

Gaines chimes in, adding, “Like top five songs or top five movies.”

Gilchrist then continues, “So we figured, so you could kind of get to know what we’re all about, we would do a top five…”

“World Wars,” the two say in unison.
