10AM tomorrow – July 23rd, Ear X-Tacy will be opening up shop in their new location next to Kinko’s on Bardstown Road. First 100 people through the door get $10 gift certificates. The staff was breaking down everything yesterday and spending all day today bringing over the majority of the inventory and setting everything up. The new address is 2226 Bardstown Road.
From Nick Haynes:
“If you have a show scheduled in August send me the info at NicholasHaynesKY@gmail.com. Also send an MP3 of any of the bands playing(with permission). We are planning a show calendar that goes with a CD-R compilation of the bands playing that month. We’re going out on Friday and Saturday nights to distribute these fliers. We have a good sized group together, but are always willing to have more. The more people that get involved the better it is for all of us.”
For more info, hit his email or reply on the forums.
For any of you that may have missed out on picking up Endpoint merch during the reunion weekend, Shirtkiller is ready to hook you up. They have the American Apparel tri-blend shirts pictured here for you to stage dive in – as well as feel good in because all of the money (sans shipping of course) is going to Jason Noble, just as if you bought one at the show.
Check this out, the Nixon s/t was one of the best records to ever come out of this town, no joke. I didn’t write the below text, so don’t bug me about calling them a metal band.
Nixon’s Self-Titled Release Reissued Digitally; First in Series of Digital Reissues
Little Heart Records forms new series of releases based on broken up Louisville acts
One of the worst kept secrets in Little Heart Records history has been their intent to start an imprint or series of out of pint Louisville records. Names and acts have been batted around for months, and it’s finally been decided: Now is the time.
Kicking off the line is the defunct metal band Nixon. Their self-titled debut is once again available, this time digitally, with an unreleased EP’s worth of additional tracks. The four songs, originally intended to be released independently, have only been heard by a handful of people close to the band, and being included here brings the total track listing to 17 songs.
Singer Matt Haas has been integral to putting this project together, piecing together all of the material and tracking down the files neccessary to make this release a reality.
Upon it’s original release the record was well received, including a french review that described the music as having “well hung testicles.” Describing the sound of the band can only be best described by guitarist Doug Walker, who said the following in a good-bye letter on the band’s MySpace: “I know, for myself, this band was an incredibly special thing. It was the exact music we wanted to play, exactly how we wanted to play it. No formulas, no rules, no method, just ‘Oh man…that sounded fuckin’ buadd… do it again.'”
In the coming weeks Little Heart Records will be announcing their next release in the series.
Available on iTunes for the low price of $9.99, Nixon (Digital Special Edition with Bonus Tracks) is available now. It can also be found on most major digital download sites. A link to iTunes can be found here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/nixon-digital-special-edition/id369850018
