Electric Fetus 40th Anniversary

DoomtreeTour

On Friday the Thirteenth Doomtree will play the least- scary show possible when we help celebrate the Electric Fetus’ 40th anniversary at First Ave. 40 years in the independent record retailing business is a serious accomplishment, especially considering that 40 years ago popular music consisted almost entirely of a guy with an accordian hawking cure-all tonics. They’ve adapted with the times, though, … Read More

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
