a huge thanks to everyone who came out to ROCK N' ROLL PIZZA PARTY last night. unfortunately SICK FITS weren't able to play due to illness. i hope it isn't typhoid. they are going to reschedule and play the ROCK N' ROLL PIZZA PARTY in the next couple of months so don't despair. SEDATIVES had a lot of fun playing and we appreciate everyone who came out to see us. if anyone is interested we have some shirts for sale and our 7" should be out in a week or so if everything goes well. the rest of the night was as tons of fun as usual. hanging out with your friends, listening to music and eating pizza is never a bad combination.
last night was also the launch of the second issue of GOING GAGA zine. ian made 20 copies and they're all gone so he's going to have to staple and photocopy some more. you'll probably be able to find copies at BIRDMAN or END HITS soon enough. this zine rules and is a much thicker issue than last time. it includes an interview with HOLY COBRAS and with the MILLION DOLLAR MARXISTS and a run-down of what went down when ian attended GONER FEST in MEMPHIS this fall. there's a bunch of record reviews and a list of records that he has for sale/trade. ian's excitement about music is very apparent when reading through this zine and it's definitely infectious. send him an email to secure yourself a copy. ian_manhire at hotmail.com
keep the good times going tonight at SKA, SOUL & ROCK N' ROLL at BRIXTON'S and/or with THE ROOKERS and a bunch of other bands at CAFE DEKCUF. scroll down a little for more info on both of these events.
this is way in advance but i'm very pleased to announce two shows that are coming up in may.
the first being BBQ a.k.a MARK SULTAN on SATURDAY MAY 10th. the show is going to be at BABYLON with THE FELINES and one more band that is yet to be announced but will definitely rule. there will be dj's spinning records all night and we'll party all night after the show is done. should be an amazing time.
the second is two days later which means MONDAY MAY 12th. i know it's a monday night and the last thing you want to do after a weekend is go to a show but check this... a) it's FREE! b) THE WHITE WIRES are playing c) THE NYMPHETS are playing. THE NYMPHETS are a great band from montreal/brooklyn who play catchy, poppy punk rock. they even do a cover of BORSTAL BREAKOUT on their cd. this show is at THE MANX on elgin street so it'll be a nice change of scenery too.
