SHOT NERVES (sea shanties and nursery rhymes, ex. The Sweet Janes)
CAVITIES (New Ottawa punk rock band: ex GERM ATTAK, PICKED ON, PRISONS, etc. These comparisons are meaningless, but I already typed it, and there's no website or anything, so I had to put something...)

All ages (I.D. to drink), all welcome. $7-10 sliding donation for touring bands. Bags must be left at the door/or home. Respect the venue, each other, and have fun. Support independent DIY hardcore and punk!

On Monday there's a basement show happening...
The Ghostwrite (Pittsburgh) is on tour with Jon Creeden (of dead weights, supporting his solo act). We are throwing together a show to support The Ghostwrite. Dead Weights will be playing a set to support our friends. Leading the night will be Ottawa's own fresh-off-bluesfest CURRENTS, and we will also be supported by a ROBOTS EVERYWHERE! set.
It's going to be a kickass basement show.
The basement is 452 Gladstone.
Respect the space or we won't be doing shows there again. The cover is PWYC with a suggested donation of $5. Don't have $5? Scrounge up something and we'll still thank you for it. Bring your friends. Show them some good bands. Make it a night to remember.
I'm posting the tentative doors for 7 PM, please check back and see if this changes. I will make announcements as well.
Ottawa post-punk, in the vein of small brown bike. Think hot water music meets planes mistaken for stars.
Creeden will be home from tour briefly for this show, so encourage him to play semi-barefoot. Again. We will be playing our brand of pop-punk and complaining about assholes.
THE GHOSTWRITE (Pittsburgh, PA)
A long way from home, on tour, playing a unique style of acoustic, folk, electronica, punk, etc. will be a really unique and memorable set from THE GHOSTWRITE. Please come out to support this man.
A man, his guitar, and often a drum machine. You will have fun. Just believe in... robots everywhere! Perfect party tunes by your new best friend phil.
