Although we're shouting out to NYC, this is actually a very fun week for the Midwest, as hometown favorites Bald Eagle and The Black Swans throw-down for their fans, and the Volcom tour (featuring Birds of Avalon and Riverboat Gamblers) rolls through the nation's heartland!
Shows of the week!
Wednesday, August 29th - O'DEATH @ the Spiegeltent in NYC w/ Death Vessel!
O'DEATH's brand of Appalachian-stomp-punk has been turning heads for the past year thanks to their monstrous live show and insanely amazing album, "Head Home" (just reissued on the Ernest Jenning imprint). Performing for the second time at New York's beautiful Spiegeltent (their first time headlining), the band appropriately finds themselves back in what may be the best venue in New York, a beautiful European burlesque carnival of sorts. Do not miss this exclusive appearance (and the early performance artists! Absolutely jawdropping).

Thursday, August 30th - TEAM ROBESPIERRE @ Studio B in Brooklyn w/ VHS or Beta!
Just back from a massive US tour performing at basements and parties w/ the likes of Pterodactyl, Attractive and Popular, and others, this disco-grind quintet is gearing up to rip the system this Thursday on a very special, free show, w/ VHS or Beta (and open bar?! nice one). Having spent most of their summer recording their new album Don't Tell The Scene (w/ the help of Colin Marston; see also Orthrelm, Ghengis Tron, Stay Fucked), the Team is preparing for upcoming dates w/ Japanther, Numbers, and other surprises early this Fall. The time for fun is NOW!
