If you know of any public caches of Endpoint weekend photos or videos, hit me up via the contact page, twitter dm, facebook message, or message board (if you want more options, I guess you could also come by my house in a scary mask at 3 am). I’d really like to do a huge post linking to all the photos and videos that I can. Thanks.
I’m sure that if you’ve had your eyes and ears open lately, you know the next few days will be packed (CJ article). Here’s a (kinda-current) rundown of just about everything happening this weekend:
Endpoint/Sunspring/Big Wheel/Shedding – 7pm @ Headliner’s (tickets may still be available). Proceeds go to Jason Noble, and Mark Brickey’s EP poster will be available, as will (likely) Rise: The Kinghorse Tribute Compilation.
Post-Endpoint show @ Lisa’s Oak St. with Centipede E’est (Pittsburgh), Ampire. $3, starts whenever EP is done.
Straight A’s – free in-store @ Ear X-tacy at 4pm to support their new Noise Pollution release entitled “Self Help” (12″/CD)
Endpoint/Face Value/Cerebellum/Interstates – 7pm @ Headliner’s (tickets maybe available on the forums or craigslist). Keep in mind that Mark Brickey’s posters will be on sale, as well as the new Cerebellum 12″ AND Rise: The Kinghorse Tribute Compilation. All of which are top-notch (excluding usage of flange pedals). Bring $$$ and remember that all of this will be sending money to Jason Noble’s cancer treatments and recovery.
For those not aware, Cerebellum will be playing a second reunion show in support of the aforementioned Noise Pollution release on July 31st @ Skull Alley. More information sure to come.
Frontier(s)/Open Fields – EP show afterparty @ Zanzabar on Preston St. 11pm, $3. – Frontier(s) will be playing a song from one of their former bands, which could be any of the following or more – Falling Forward, Elliott, Stay Gold, Champion, Mouthpiece, Automatic.. I don’t feel like listing the rest and those are the more likely candidates anyway.
Duncan Barlow will be signing his novel Super Cell Anemia. Carmichael’s Books at 2720 Frankfort Ave. 4pm.
And then at 6pm, Endpoint, Coliseum, and Straight A’s will be playing at Skull Alley. It’ll be $5. And it’ll probably be tight for space. Get there on time, your not-so-fashionably late ass will likely be left on the street.
If there’s anything that I’m missing, be sure to hit the contact page and let me know!!!

I’ve been spamming Facebook about these two releases, so I’m going to take a break for a sec. And I’m just going to say – PICK THESE GODDAMNED RECORDS UP, POSER.
SaySomethingHugeonFire, the brainchild of Braun (The Oxford Farm Report, Jar) Dabney, has signed with Little Heart Records. The act, which describes their mix of folk, punk, rock and alt-country as ‘Skronkity!’, will be recording this summer with plans for a 2010 release of their debut.
“It’s funny,” says label founder Bryan Puckett, “this all started with Braun and I recording some demos of him playing songs acoustic for no real reason accept to put them down. A lot of it was stuff he had been sitting on for a while. We’d play them for people and they’d all seem to really like it. Next thing you know, Braun had a whole band and we were hammering out tee shirt ideas.”
Joined by drummer Brian Shank (formerly of Red Letter Days and the New York punkabilly act The Shirley Temples) the Louisville based 3-piece’s ‘fly-by-the-seat-of-their-pants’ attitude has already grabbed the attention of several local promoters. Their DIY work ethic and brazen personalities keep Little Heart on their toes.
“Seriously, SaySomethingHugeonFire will either be the greatest band on our roster– or the death of us,” says Puckett with tongue firmly pressed in cheek.
SaySomethingHugeonFire will be appearing with Crime in Stereo, The Swellers and This Time Next Year later this month. While the band only plans on regional and local touring at this time, expect more in the coming months.
Little Heart Records is a Louisville, KY based record label. Boasting a roster with such acts as Rock ‘n Roll Television, California, The Gravetones, The Royal Tees, Chris Karrer and many more, their goal is to cram good music down your throats. Fer serious.
