Louisville Hardcore Shirts

Louisville Hardcore shirtLouisville Hardcore shirt - brown

Thanks to Ear X-Tacy, the Louisville shirts that have been collecting dust in my closet are once again available. $10 plus sales tax will net you either a navy shirt with yellow print or a beige shirt with brown print. I hate selling shit, so I’m glad they’re willing to do it. The shirts were printed by Jamie at Skull Alley last year.

If you haven’t heard yet, Ear X-Tacy has started a new event series called “After Dark”. The series is looking to help promote local punk, hardcore, metal, and hip-hop acts that the general public hasn’t become familiar with.

First up: VADERBOMB and BLACK GOD will be taking to the Ear X-Tacy stage. This one is sure to be a rager and a damn good way to start off the series. Come one, come all – 8pm at Ear X-Tacy (2226 Bardstown Road Louisville, KY 40205) – FB Event.

Vaderbomb is so stoked on this event that they’ve released a video challenge and declare themselves to be the likely champions.

Parlour – Simulacrenfield CD/vinyl

Parlour is releasing a new record entitled “Simulacrenfield” on Temporary Residence. They are a lot better at describing things and being verbose than I am, so why don’t you just read what they wrote about the record:

Simulacrenfield rearranges the vision set forth in previous Parlour releases, utilizing the septet for all it’s worth. The songs are tighter, heavier, and more melodically complex than ever before – no doubt partly contributed to the addition of Jon Cook (Crain, Rodan) on drums, and Breck Pipes (Cerebellum) on guitar. Furnish, Cook and Pipes – along with longtime Parlour member Steve Good (The Web, Sapat) – have a rich and storied musical history, having played in bands together in their hometown of Louisville, KY since the late 1980s. That familiarity and inherent musical dialogue with one another can be heard throughout Simulacrenfield; the rhythm section in a tight pocket while the guitars, keyboards and brass section trade sharp melodies and chugging riffs. Imagine a heavier, more disturbing Neu! with more unexpected twists and turns (and that’s just the jumping-off point).”

2. Camus
3. Jalepenooptics
4. Wedder
5. Simulacrenfield
6. Carrier
7. Sea of Bubbly Goo

You can purchase the record at Ear X-Tacy or on Temp Res’ site.
