New Records and release shows

From Noise Pollution:

Noise Pollution will be releasing a split seven inch with The Glasspack and Trophy Wives on Saturday, August 21st at a show featuring both bands at Zanzabar (2100 South Preston). The record will be on orange vinyl and contains The Glasspack’s “If You Don’t Have Anything Nice to Say” (which features Peter Searcy on bass) and Trophy Wives’ “Firecracker”. Also included in the record will be a download card with both bands’ songs from the record plus bonus tracks including a remastered version of Trophy Wives’ debut EP, their cover of Crain’s “UFO Song”, live stuff from The Glasspack’s set from the 2008 Roadburn Festival in Holland and the ‘Pack’s cover of Bobby Rush’s “Mary Jane”. In all, fifteen tracks will be included on the download card. That’s a hell of a deal for a measly $5.

The show will also celebrate The Glasspack’s 10 year anniversary, so the band will be performing an extended set with guest appearances by Adam Neal (Hookers), Brett Holsclaw, Peter Searcy (Squirrel Bait), Mark Abromavage (Kinghorse) and more. Cover will be $6, doors at 9pm.


Second Story Man will return to the stage on Saturday, August 28th at Zanzabar (2100 S. Preston) for their first show with new bassist Michael Snowden. SSM will be teaming up again with labelmates Straight A’s for this show along with the excellent Lee Van Cleef. LVC will be releasing their new album “Terror, Blood” (Dunkenstein Records) at this show as well. At 3pm on the day of the show, Second Story Man will be performing a special acoustic set at EarXtacy as part the newly relocated record store’s anniversary celebrations. A purchase of SSM’s Screaming Secrets album at EarXtacy during the instore will get you free admission to the Zanzabar show later that night plus a free copy of their 2006 release Red Glows Brighter. Righteous deals abound!
