position 1. position 2.

SUPPOSITORIES had their record release show on thursday at ROCK N' ROLL PIZZA PARTY. SAVAGE CRIMES opened up the show. i thought it was the best they've ever played and recording with IAN from SUPPOSITORIES clearly help them up their game. the two new songs they played are definitely my favorites from them and i'm waiting to hear a lot more great songs from these guys. SUPPOSITORIES killed it as well and i highly suggest grabbing a copy of their MOMENTS OF SQUARE VIOLENCE EP. if you still don't have a record player, you better buy one cause a lot of bands are putting out records these days and they're probably all going to be on vinyl so deal with it.

the new issue of STANDARD ISSUE was also released out into the wild that night. i think it's one of the best issues yet. the cover boldly claims that it's the FINAL ISSUE but i'm curious if it's disgusting corpse will rise again!

saturday night THE VISITORS, THE LEFTOVERS, THE PG-13'S & THE ROMAN LINE played at DEKCUF. i missed the first two bands because we were busy listening to new MASSHYSTERI record and listening to the tracks from THE CREEPS new ep twice but THE LEFTOVERS played a great set which opened up with a cover of CHEAP TRICK's "HELLO THERE". i'm not really familiar with that band but it was an entertaining set nonetheless. THE VISITORS were sloppy but great. sloppy in the sense that they had to start almost every song twice due to miscommunication or forgetting what key a song is in or whatever reasons/excuses they have but once the songs kicked in, they were great. a couple of new songs that i hadn't heard yet since i missed their last couple of shows were played, much to my delight. SOUTH FOR THE SUMMER is a hit for sure and i assume it will appear on THE VISITORS 7" that is being put out by the one and only GER HUBLEY of ROCKET TO RUSSIA fame. i can't wait to get my hands on that thing!

holy crap!!!

THE GOODNIGHT LOVING show was absolutely amazing. definitely one of the best bands to grace RRPP and such great guys too! it was great to see a lot of people up front enjoying the band and buying records. they were really happy with the show!

this weekend SEDATIVES went on our first wild weekend trip and it was amazing. hanging out with STATUES in SUDBURY on friday was a great time. the TOWNEHOUSE was bumping!
check out the SEDATIVES BRO-DOWN at 1:50. nerds!

the next night was in TORONTO's insane punk rock lair the BAD CAVE where we played with SCHOOL JERKS, BAD SKIN & HATED. kids were flipping out and destroying the ceilings and each other. it was wild! SUNDAY ended in MONTREAL with an amazing lineup of CASTAVETS, CRITICAL CONVICTIONS, ULTRAVIOLENCE RAY, THE OMEGAS & STATUES. it was a really great show although sparsely attended.

a lot of cool stuff is coming up that should get you excited like the HOLY COBRAS cassette release party and THE WHITE WIRES lp release!!!!!!! holy shit! it's finally coming out.

the goodnight loving

we have a last minute show coming up at ROCK N' ROLL PIZZA PARTY on november 6th. we're going to be hosting a great band from milwaukee called THE GOODNIGHT LOVING. they're playing a few more north american shows before they're heading out to europe. we were lucky enough to have them come out and play here. they play music influenced by punk and garage rock with a hint of pop and blues played with passion and excitement. they remind me of REIGNING SOUND which is a good thing because that band is absolutely amazing.
