Cropped Out updates/lineup changes

Friday, September 28th, 2012

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.


Cropped Out tickets still available!

Friday, September 21st, 2012

Cropped Out still has tickets available for all three days on TicketFly. Make sure to grab some now before next weekend’s festival gets started. There are tickets for Friday, Saturday, or a combo ticket package for both days. If you’re looking to get into the Sunday party, keep your ears open around the first two days for info (gotta keep it secret, keep it safe).

Here’s an updated listing of who is playing, and on what day (or view on the Cropped Out site): (more…)

Cropped Out 2012

Friday, August 10th, 2012

Cropped Out 2012‘s lineup has been announced (last week, whoops). This year, the festival will be moving back to it’s 1st year location at American Turner’s on River Road, and the dates will be September 28th-30th. Ticketing information and full lineup will be coming soon, but here’s what to expect right now:

FRIDAY + SATURDAY: Our third year kicks off at over 30 bands spread across 3 days (two main days with an unforgettable closing party on Sunday, 9/30). A short list of attractions lined up for Friday (9/28) and Saturday (9/29) include the proto-doo-wop sass of Chain & The Gang led by DC legend Ian Svenonius (The Make-Up/Nation of Ulysses), a very rare performance from elusive Texan blues/folk outsider Jandek, the silky lo-fi New Wave croon of Tampa, Florida’s Merchandise (ft. members of the late great Cult Ritual), the bitingly sour, self-deprecrating social stabs of “World’s Funnyman” Neil Hamburger, live music by David Liebe Hart of Adult Swim’s “Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job,” and as always, plenty of organically grown, freshly picked, fairly traded locals like Twin Sister Radio, Gangly Youth, and Kark, just to name a few…

Life Partner - dogs

Life Partner - Dogs

Aaron Osbourne (formerly of Plows and State Champion, among others) is the main dude behind the wheel of Life Partner, and this new batch of bummed-out, midwestern grunge folk is known simply as “Dogs.” Low-fi not giving a fuck fills up the new release on Sophomore Lounge Records newest cassette release, scheduled to make it’s small run appearance on January 24th. However, it’s possible that some copies could be available at the Chestnut House this weekend. Life Partner will be appearing with Savages, Mote (1st show I believe, ex Mountain Asleep among others), a Debauchees. The show is Sunday night (Jan 22nd) and presented by the Cropped Out collective. Five bucks, 7pm, bring a couple of extra bucks for the tape and maybe bring a box of doughnuts for Aaron.

View the FB event post -or- talk about the show on the forums.
