Our favorite review and interview site, Never Nervous has posted a new interview with Dan Davis of Gangly Youth. Check it out – http://www.never-nervous.com/2013/01/interview-dan-davis-talks-about-whats.html
There’s a new band starting up from members of Rattletooth, Late Ones, and Straight A’s. This is a lot more in the vein of Rattletooth than the other bands mentioned, so just forget that last sentence. Permanent Night has already recorded several songs with Trip at Treehouse Audio and put their demo up on Bandcamp for everyone to check out. Their first show will be on October 21st, 2012 at Nelligan Hall with Spine, Liars Parade, and Stabler.
Some news I’ve been sleeping on like a moron… Jim Marlowe (Sapat, Tropical Trash) is opening up a new record store this Friday. It’ll be named Astro Black Records. Apparently, Jim’s not opposed to doing some shows at the new shop once he gets settled in. They’ll be selling new as well as used records, so if you have some old stuff to sell off, keep them in mind. And the stuff on the shelves – tax is already marked in the price, so none of that awkward adding up in your head on the way to the register.
Phil Olympia, who runs the Never Nervous blog, recently ran an interview with Jim. You should definitely check it out ASAP.
There are quite a few triumphs that residents of Louisville have to be excited about this Summer. For instance, we have a new record store on the brick-and-mortar horizon called Astro Black Records, and we also are looking forward to the much anticipated debut seven inch record from post-rockers Tropical Trash. My friend Jim Marlowe is behind both of these happenings and was nice enough to sit down and answer a few questions about his new shop, the upcoming Tropical Trash record, and so on and so forth…
This coming weekend will see both the 21+ (Saturday) and the All-ages reunion shows from Indignant Few, Bush League, and Son Of Dog. Please remember that if you’re planning on going to these shows that they were moved to the Vernon Club on Story Ave. And rumor has it that you will not want to wear clothes that you wouldn’t wear to see Gwar. In prep for the show, LEO did an interview with Keator from Indignant Few which you can read over on their site (and I assume the current issue which is out today). Additionally, you can listen to tracks from the bands over at the Louisville Music Archive site. (Sancred is on there too!).
Anyway, they are called The Action Pack, and they want you to come out for a pot luck/house show on Wednesday, December 16th, 2009. They’ll be playing with Houses In Motion, Fork In Socket, and The Wax Intellectual. It starts at 5pm, and will cost you the gift of grub. So bring a dish (vegan or non-vegan, so it can be just about anything) and hang out. Give em a call for directions or plug the address on the flyer into Google Maps or something.
Back to The Action Pack for a minute… I did a short interview with Nick Haynes earlier this afternoon to help promote the band and the show, so click “read more” and… read… more?
