The Dirty Talk Game Show is a fun night where four naughty-tongued panelists fight the clock to say just the right thing, before the other panelists steal the clock and finish it up right.

In turn each naughty panelist is given a topic to talk about for sixty seconds without repeating themselves, pausing too long, or deviating from the subject (They can be deviants, they just can't deviate from the subject). If they do any of that, the other panelists pounce and steal the timer and finish it out. The winner with the most naughty points will be crowned the Filthiest Mouth in San Francisco. Join us to cheer on your favorite naughty panelist!

Watch and listen:

International award-winning Thai-American hip-hop group Thaitanium released their debut U.S. single "Wake Up (Bangkok City)" featuring Snoop Dogg. This marks a first major release by a Thai hip-hop group in the US. Snoop Dogg met Thaitanium while touring in Thailand last summer. Their collaboration soon after resulted in hip-hop banger "Wake Up (Bangkok City)". Snoop Dogg also stars in the music video, which is set to premiere in the U.S. on August 20th 2014

"Wake Up (Bangkok City)" is the essential hip-hop song for any city, with organically rapped verses over a hypnotic track. Thaitanium effortlessly plays off Snoop's addictive hook, creating a call and response with the rap legend. Together, Thaitanium and Snoop make "Wake Up" a rap anthem for not only Bangkok, but all party cities alike.

Thaitanium began with three members -- Khan, Way and Day -- who helped pioneer Thailand's hip-hop culture. In 2006 they added two members -- Big Calo and DJAYBUDDAH -- the latter runs the USA DJ coalition in Asia representing Heavy Hitters and DJ Whoo Kid's Shadyville DJ's. Since the release of their debut album, Thaitanium has jumped to the forefront of the international hip-hop community, creating a substantial following in Thailand and other countries in the Asian region. With Fortune 500 sponsorships from Toyota, Nike, Honda and Canon, the group already has a number of platinum selling albums overseas. The group has been nominated for "Favorite Artist Thailand" (MTV Asia Awards), achieved "Top 10 Video of the Year" (MTV Thailand) and has accumulated nearly 2 million Facebook followers.

In addition to releasing music, each member of Thaitanium has had individual success on a variety of independent projects including a barbershop, clothing line, film production, modeling and music publishing. They've performed with the biggest names in the music industry including Jay-Z, 50 Cent, Rihanna, Akon and Snoop Dogg. In 2008, they organized the largest hip-hop festival in Thailand The Pan Asian Hip-Hop Festival that brought legendary rapper NAS to Thailand.

Through a pure love of hip-hop culture, sheer determination, and raw talent, Thaitanium and its parent label, Thaitanium Entertainment Ltd., have undeniably ushered in the dawn of a new era in Thai hip-hop and ignited a musical revolution in their hometown. In a land once dominated by glossy pop idols, these proud sons of Siam have seamlessly woven together the complex cadences of their native Thai language with the gritty street vocabulary of American hip-hop.

Watch and listen:

While Messer Chups' instrumental surf sound is hard to categorize, it is safe to say that it would be embraced by fans of Rockabilly, Horror punk, Vintage surf, Italian slasher films, My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, Pulp Fiction, Lounge music, the theremin, The Cramps, and the theme song from The Munsters. Their catchy music combines surf, vintage Russian melodies, rare film samples from the 50s and 60s, scratchy historical recordings, and lounge loops. Live, they explode with garage-punk intensity, all played against a video-collage backdrop of mid-century trashy cult and horror movie clips featuring Russ Meyer and Ed Wood, and superstars like Vampira and Bela Lugosi in a zombie mash-up.

Isaac Rother and The Phantoms call back to an era where rock n' roll was simple and dangerous. The voodoo magic of Bo Diddley and Screaming Jay Hawkins is seamlessly fused with tough 60's groups like the Animals, Screaming Lord Sutch and the tongue in cheek humor of classic novelty hits like Wooly Bully and Surfin' Bird. Isaac Rother and the Phantoms bring back the golden mystique of this past with top notch musicianship and original material, rendering them a cut above the rest. Behold... The Unspeakable Horror of Isaac Rother and The Phantoms!

The Greasy Gills are a smokin' hot all-gill surf band from Alameda, California. Featuring members of Rip Room and Bloody Waters!
