Another Mistake/Late Ones After Dark pics

April 28th, 2011

Brendan with Late Ones Last weekend, Ear X-Tacy had another ‘After Dark’ show/event. They’ve really been on point lately, and this show was no exception. Unfortunately, Keith couldn’t be there for Another Mistake’s set, but Peter filled in and everything sounded great. If you weren’t there, here are some photos to (hopefully) prompt you to come out to their next ‘After Dark’ event which will feature Prideswallower’s crushing riffs paired with Straight A’s odd-but-awesomeness. Yeah, that last sentence reads like shit, but I’m not a writer.

Spiders 4 Eyes - Songs for Nobody

Spiders 4 Eyes - Songs for Nobody 7"

Local punk rockers Spiders 4 Eyes are a new band, but they aren’t starting off slow. Having played just a handful of show so far, they’re eager for more and have already put together a 7″ that is just as eager to be put on your turntable. They’ve also shot a short video for the song “Breaking The Clock” that is in editing right now and should be released soon. They’ll be playing here soon (4/30/11) with Lee Van Cleef  and Chime Hours at Cahoots. Here’s a quick band bio:

“Spiders 4 Eyes is a hardcore punk band formed in the basement of local b-movie director, John Walker. The main focus is around fast, catchy punk of the past. For beauty and ugliness to become one,and for the distortion to reach eleven! There have been comparrisons from the Dicks to Squirrel Bait. The first 7” came out sometime in February 2011, and the band is working on doing a few more records. With keyboards this time around. We hope to be playing quite a few shows around town, and hope to meet all of you! -First show was opening for Bush League @ the Keswick Democratic Club on 3.18.11

Band Members:

John Walker – bass/vocals
Thom-ass – drums
Neil Dyer – moog/sarcasm
Drew Blood – guitar”

March 28th, 2011

RTC from Munich just emailed me some fine photos of Coliseum from their recent show with Rise Against in Germany. Click through and check them out when you have a moment. It sounds like they weren’t a fan of seeing our boys in a huge venue like the Zenith, but at least they want them to come back.
