Big news day, folks. Here we go……
Let’s get the bad news out the way first: due to circumstances beyond anyone’s control, it’s with heavy hearts that we have to announce that The Hex Dispeners must cancel their show, as well as the dates in PDX and Victoria that were scheduled to bookend their FD/GD appearance. On behalf of the band and the team of promoters involved, we can say wholeheartedly that this decision was not made lightly. We can also say that rescheduling for early ’14 is already in the works and we can hardly wait.
In the meantime, with big shoes to fill… Pretty sure Steve wears size eleven. So happy to announce that Dirtnap recording artists Steve Adamyk Band are flying in all the way from Ottawa to fill the void! Even better, our own SAB single should be out just in time, adding to the long list of record releases parties we’re throwing down! SAB will also be playing Logan’s Pub Saturday, Nov 16th with The Mants and The Line Traps for all you islanders. Welcome aboard, Steve & Co!
Thanks again to all of you who snagged those Roky Erickson advance tickets: now SOLD OUT! For those of you who are opting for wristbands (now your only way to see the Roky show), here’s a couple incentives to sweeten the deal:
This Friday at The Astoria, LA-TI-DA RECORDS presents Ballantynes EP release with Skinny Kids and Gang Signs. Available at the merch table will be DISCOUNTED wristbands for $40 w/ admission. For those of you who have already purchased wristbands, bring your ticket or proof of purchase down to the Astoria and you’re in for free! Just don’t lose it…
If that’s not enough, The Electric Owl & Crowsnest present Nobunny, Audacity and B-Lines Tuesday, Nov 19th!
For those of you nursing two day hangovers after Roky, hang onto those wristbands: Present them at the door before 10PM, and the show is just $5! Five fucking bucks!
Without further ado….
Steve Adamyk Band “High Above/Hate Myself/A Promise Is A Promise” (LTDR019)
We’ve had the A-side steaming for while; now you can hear the B-side in all it’s glory! ‘Hate Myself’ is one of those SAB jams you’ve all come to know and love; with ‘A Promise Is A Promise,’ the guys grabbed Chris Page (Camp Radio, The Stand GT) and paid homage to west coast pop-punk legends, Bum! Teengenerate, eat yer heart out!
Pre-order is up as of today. This will be shipping later in the Fall. Speaking of singles, singles clubs, pre-orders and orders, Maniac is a go! Singles go out this week!
We also have another little piece we snuck out into the world this past weekend: a cassette compilation of the first 12 singles, courtesy of our friends at Hosehead Records! Limited to 100 copies in total, Hosehead is already sold out of their copies, and we’re down to less than half already. Shopping cart is up while these last.
Last but certainly not least……
Get ready: line up announcement next week……
Steve Adamyk Band is touring up the west coast this month in support of their latest greatest “Third” lp on Dirtnap Records. Needles//Pins will be joining them in support. Pals abound!
Seems like a good time to preview tracks from both upcoming singles, yeah? Yeah!
Steve Adamyk: High Above
Needles//Pins: Out of This Place
We’ll have individual pre-orders up in the next little while. In the meantime, join the singles club (shopping cart link on the right column) and snag the exclusive color editions.
Hot on the heels of last week’s additions of King Dude, Two Towns, Bad Channels, The Gooeys, The Mandates, Korean Gut and Capitol6, we’ve got more good friends joining the fray! Jody Glenham joins the Lanalou’s bill on Nov 2nd! Chains of Love get back from tour in time to join the big Pointed Sticks farewell show on Nov 3rd!
We’d also like to thank Dandelion Records for joining our list of wristband vendors. Stoked to have them on board.
REMEMBER: there are no advanced tickets for individual events. Buy your wristband or come early!
