Wed. Oct. 8th.
MONOTONIX (Tel Aviv, Israel) - Drag City/Volcom, "Summers & Autumns" mp3 - Expect dangerous antics and fire (hopefully not). Monotonix has been building a steady word of mouth for their insane live shows for the past three years. This will be their final US tour for a while.
EL PASO HOT BUTTON (norman) - "Solo dissonant punk" in the vein of Jon Spencer Blues meets Arab On Radar. EPHB will also be opening for Monotonix at The Mohawk in Austin on the 9th. After that he will be touring with The Chinese Stars. He will also be releasing his first 7", a split with Lipstick Terror (via us two records).
BEST FWENDS - Four mp3s avail. at RCRD LBL Popular everywhere but in Texas!! Show some love for this native Ft.Worth and Austin duo that plays quirky and catchy punk songs with two singers and an ipod. I can't recall specifically, but one of their songs was used in a Coca Cola or Bacardi commercial.
Rival Gang I needed a band with female members, so it wasn't a total bromance all evening. Rival Gang is an energetic and potentially offensive female post-punk band from Dentron.
All Ages at the Lounge on Elm St. for this special last-minute engagement.
