Does anything else really need to be said after checking out the flyer? If so, here’s the info. Hopefully “Chestnuts roasting on an open fire” doesn’t translate to the house burning down after the show. /puns.

The Foxery has recorded a new record entitled Life Is Still Beautiful and will be releasing it at Headliners on December 20th with a digital release on December 9th. Also playing the show will be Frontier Sons, The Lion in Winter & Jubalson. The show should be at 8pm, 18+, and $5. And I don’t know what this shit is, but “There will be an additional $5.00 cash surcharge for 18-20 year olds at the door.” Ain’t that some shit.**
If you want to do the Facebook thing, they have an event setup so you can get updates. If not, keep checking the message board or follow Mike around town with a pair of garden shears and threaten to cut his beard if he doesn’t keep you up to date. Then sing him the Golden Girls theme. In addition to the release show, there will be a tour for the band to celebrate the new release. A full listing of the dates as well as a statement from the band is below.
** If you’re younger and don’t want to deal with that age surcharge deal, The Foxery will be playing at the Chestnut house on November 26th with By The Grace Of God, Aficionado, Caution Critters, Admiral Ackbar, Via Animo, and Sloux. 6pm, $5. All ages, no stages. You should know the drill by now. (edited 11/22/2011)

The Courier Journal ran an article this week about Louisville neighbors Palomino Records, who over the past year or so have been churning out TONS of releases for the bands that this site tries to cover. It’s a shame that they didn’t mention any specifics (labels/bands) about what the ‘new market’ is that has helped Palamino not only stay in business but think about expanding, but I guess it wasn’t really needed for the article. Anyway, give a shout out to Noise Pollution for one for leading people towards the business and helping get a lot of records from this town pressed over the past year.
Nearly 500,000 45-rpm records fill the shelves in thousands of boxes — it’s the vinyl version of the last scene in “Raiders of the Lost Ark.”
