TENEMENT (Appleton, WI)

TENEMENT play catchy punk rock which sounds like a modern blend of early DESCENDENTS & HUSKER DU. Their Napalm Dreams lp is absolutely incredible as is their slew of splits and 7". They are an absolute force live and should definitely not be missed.


SURPRISE GUESTS Show up early to find out!

Catchy punk/new wave & dirty garage/rock & roll records being spun all night by Richard Sarazin & Skid Vicious.

Doors at 10 pm.
Noise at 10:30 pm.

Get there early to not miss the bands.

Babylon Nightclub!

Sedatives new 7" + discography!

So the SEDATIVES discography is now streaming. The exciting part is that it includes a brand new 7" that was just released by Red Lounge and Erste Theke Tontraeger Records out of Germany.

The 7" features the title track which is pulled from the excellent Ottawa Gaga compilation on Going Gaga Records and the B-side is an outtake from the LP sessions.

La-Ti-Da Records!

Victoria's La-Ti-Da Records put out a bunch of rad 7" this summer and I finally got my package in the mail. He put out 7" by NEEDLES//PINS, FIST CITY & TRANZMITORS as well as 2 Tranzmitors off-shoot bands: THE REACT!THE BALLANTYNES. Definitely do yourself a favor and check out these bands and this label.

Tim who runs the label has just announced an insane 3 day festival he is putting on called the FALL DOWN/GET DOWN that's happening on November 1 - 3.

The line-up includes all of the aforementioned bands as well as SEX CHURCH, MEAN JEANS as well as old-timers DEATH & POINTED STICKS playing their last show ever!
