Lee Van Cleef – Songs About…

October 14th, 2012

LVC - Songs ABout ShittingLee Van Cleef called it quits earlier this year in almost typical Louisville fashion. That is to say that they had to part ways right after recording a new record instead of the way everyone seems to record/release/break up almost right afterwards. Justin headed off for D.C. adventure, babies were had, etc. Regardless, that record, helmed by Trip at Treehouse Audio, is seeing the light of internet-day now on Bandcamp and Soundcloud. Entitled Songs About Shitting, please give it a shot even if you tend to be fecal-phobic.

Cropped Out updates/lineup changes

Cropped Out updates/lineup changes

Greetings, all! The time is now upon us! One last update from the Cropped Out camp, leading into this weekend’s festivities.

Just wanted to mention that advance tickets will only be available through the morning of Friday, 9/28, so if you were planning on saving a couple extra dollars by buying early, get on it! You only have a couple days left.

Physical tickets are still available from our friends at Astro Black Records and Please & Thank You in Louisville, as well as will-call tickets on our website HERE. As soon as doors open on Friday afternoon, the price will return to the regular rate of $25 a day or $45 in combination with the purchase of a Saturday.

Sunday tickets are also still available online and at the door day-of-show for our closing party at The Workhouse Ballroom (which we should probably mention is at 1312 Lexington Road) with Papa M, Wooden Wand, and Jozef Van Wissem. This is a very special event with limited seating, so please buy your tickets in advance if possible to prevent a line out the door into the traffic of Lexington Road.

We’d also like to take this time for a couple other quick announcements. One (and hopefully the only) change in scheduling is that Dahm of The Phantom Family Halo has come down with some pretty lousy illness and will not be able to make the trek down from New York City this year. Though on a positive note, while he takes his time to rest, 90’s power-violence pioneers Suppression (from Roanoke, VA) and our very close friends Fat History Month (from Boston, MA//on Sophomore Lounge) will be sliding into the line-up instead.

Permanent Night

Spine, Permanent Night, Stabler at Nelligan Hall 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.
