Like Glue + Iron Mind showcase 2011

This’ll probably go down as the show of the Fall. Shit, I wish that was as catchy as “Show of the Summer”. Oh well, fuck it. There will be stage dives, high fives, smelly pits, overly clean dudes, pop punk jumps, angry growls, and pretty much anything most of you would want from a hardcore show regardless of your individual preferences. So try to make it out and support these locals and your pals if you know these guys, and try out something new if you’re not familiar with what’s going on. It’ll also be the 7″ release show for the Out Crowd/Written Off split, a new Enough 7″, and Another Mistake’s ‘Lies For Lust’ 7″. So bring some $$$ to pick up the new releases as well.

I’m going to go ahead and say that even though the flyer states “No fighting, no farting”, that I’m gonna crop dust the shit out of that living room.

Vend-A-Pin Collection List

Vend-A-Pin Collection List

If you’ve been walking around Louisville the past year or so, you’ve likely seen the Vend-A-Pin machines around Bardstown Road, particularly at Ultra Pop. For those that haven’t been initiated to it yet, you pop in quarters and you get a .5″ button with artwork from a local artist on it. Well, Royal Buttons has expanded this program as well as expanded the locations for the machines and made this game of ‘collect them all’ a bit more fun. As mentioned before on Louisville Hardcore (as well as other places), Royal Buttons has released their Vend-A-Pin Volume 1 compilation and the only way to get this sweet piece of 12″ vinyl – collect buttons corresponding to all 10 bands on the comp. For a full track list, click on the Collection List image to the left.

The buttons have been spread around town in various vending machines and are available for fifty cents. Here’s a list of places you can find them –
Ear X-Tacy, Ultra Pop, Nachbar, Highland Coffee, Derby City Espresso, Derby City Chop Shop, The Tim Faulkner Gallery, and Land Of Tomorrow (on Broadway).

When you get a pin from the machines, you get one of those fun little bubbles that you loved as a kid with the band’s pin and a download code for the band’s contribution to the comp. Make sure to keep the paper that the code is on – to get the actual vinyl comp, you need to collect all ten and bring them to Ear X-Tacy and redeem them.

LHxC site updates

LHxC Flyer Archive

LHxC Flyer Archive

The flyer archive has been updated with over 200 more flyers in the past week. And I have at least another 200 to scan this week. So if you have some down time this holiday week, jump in and check out the artwork and see all the shows you may have caught or missed. Right now, the flyer archive is right around 1300 flyers. That’s a lot of shows.

Also, the history section should be completely operational now after a few database problems and an outdated software installation. Everything has been upgraded to the current mediawiki version. Hit the contact page if anything is still messed up. This week will see some more formatting updates as well as an attempt to integrate an easy to use WYSIWYG editor so you can edit entries without having to learn the wiki-code. Just a reminder – anyone can add things to the history, and if there’s something wrong or misleading in there, you can update it. Unfortunately I don’t have time to police all the entries, and didn’t write everything in there, so sending me emails calling me names isn’t going to motivate me to help you much.

Also hoping to put in a new site-wide search utility in the next week to make searches of the forums/history/blog a little easier and centralized. Maybe a photo/flyer retrospective for Skull Alley just in time for the LAST SHOW this coming Friday evening (New Year’s Eve). Dress formal, in a costume, wear a fishbowl filled with piss on your head, do something weird and come out for it.

We were absolutely NOT prepared for your support. We are working to restock the store with everything you want that we may be out of today. Hang in there with us. We are going to do whatever it takes to keep ear X-tacy alive. You have show that you really do care, and all we can ask is that you continue to support local independent businesses wherever you may live. Trust me, this problem is not just ear X-tacy’s. ALL small businesses need you now more than ever. Please continue to spread the word about ear X-tacy. Sign up for our weekly e-mail if you haven’t already. Come to the store if you never have.
