Dave Hause has a lot on his plate right now, but that’s nothing new.

A native Philly singer-songwriter who has played in multiple area punk and hardcore bands, Hause is an expert at being in multiple places at once.

To bring you up to speed in case you’re not familiar, Hause got his start in short-lived punk acts The Curse and Paint it Black, but eventually hit gold when he formed The Loved Ones with former Kid Dynamite member Michael “Spider” Cotterman and drummer Mike Sneeringer (formerly of Trial By Fire and Purling Hiss, currently in Strand of Oaks).

Philly-born rocker Dave Hause took to the airwaves on WXPN last night with a guest DJ set during the Philly Local show, showing off his wide-reaching musical tastes.

This week’s WXPN Philly Local show on WXPN will feature special guest DJ Dave Hause spinning an hour-long set with a lot of variety: some singer-songwriters, some rock bands, some punk and hip-hop, all chosen from the albums the Philly native has been listening to over the past year and change on the road in support of his excellent 2013 record Devour.

“When that album came out, I toured for ten straight weeks, and any new record that came out, I tried to check it out because we had those long van rides,” Hause says. “Now I’m off for a while making a new record, but most of 2014 I spent touring. It’s become such a big part of my lifestyle in general that if I don’t tour for too long it starts to feel weird. It’s about establishing some kind of balance between playing shows, writing and being home.” Continue reading →
