John Hatz is our guest on this week’s Go Plug Yourself podcast and we ask him: What is your favorite chip? A question asked by none other than Mike Carrozza back in episode 235.

This is a podcast nearly 20 years in the making. I met John Hatz let’s say over 10 years ago and have been going to the parties thrown by his promotion company the legendary “I Love Neon” for closer to the last 20 years. But it was probably about 5 years ago that I said “hey John, you should do the podcast at some point.”

The last time I remember talking to him about it was around the holidays in 2019. “Sure, let’s do an episode around spring time when there starts being a lot of different acts coming to town!”

We all know how that went.

But now it’s 2021 and vaccines are rolling out and parties are coming back! John Hatz and I Love Neon are brining a pile of shows to Theatre Fairmount, Bar Le Ritz, Newspeak and a host of other venues around the city! Check out for their full lineup of upcoming shows.

John talks about going to Vegas, talking to people at 4 in the morning, some of the seedier parts of Montreal and more. And oh hey Walter is back co-hosting this one!

Enjoy the show!
