Blowout Jr.

DoomtreeNews, Tour

It’s definitely a sign of a good show when everyone involved is still walking around in a fog four days later. The Blowout has proven itself to be one such show, and today’s City Pages seems to concur. We’re shaking it off and moving on, though. We’ve got to ensure that the Blowout Jr (Dec 16. T-Rock. 5pm. $8. 20 and under. Tickets.) is … Read More

One Week 'til the Blowout

DoomtreeNews, Tour

3 Weeks 'til the Blowout

DoomtreeNews, Tour

P.O.S and Turbo‘s run with Minus the Bear has ended without incident. They were, however, left by the side of the road in northern California as soon as the tour ended this weekend. So we put the best man for the job, Cecil Otter, on a plane to go get our boys and bring them home. He’s rented a Miata, and the … Read More

Gasthof

Mictlan and Dessa are both playing rap songs at the Gasthof tomorrow night. Dessa will not–as has been reported elsewhere–be playing with One Self at the Kitty Kat Klub, although that sounds like a heckuva show too. But wait wait wait don’t go to that! Go to the Gastof! That was a funny joke! Ha ha! Go to the Gastof. Audio Tribe, Omaur Bliss, … Read More
