Oreo Speedwagon

Alright please tell me you've heard about this shit by now.. but if not, here's the deal. The fucking Armitage Shanks are coming here all the way from the UK and are playing twice in Carbondale this week, Monday night at PK's and Tuesday night at the Lost Cross. Thanks to the one and only Malcolm for making this happen, and his long-defunct Hippie Repellent will be rising from the dead to join them on both occasions.

Shortly after this they will be making the trip to Goner Fest 7, which if you don't know about by now you 're livin' under some serious kinda rock.. we're gonna be there, and so is Guitar Wolf, Personal and the Pizzas, Oblivians, Ty Segall, Useless Eaters, Thee Oh Sees, Golden Triangle, New Bomb Turks, So Cow, some new band with Greg Cartwright, and a whole lot more.. that is just all I can pull off the top of my head.

Good week ahead my friends..

Screaming Females released their new record, Castle Talk, 2 days ago and last night, they played their official release show in Brooklyn, at Knitting Factory. Sucks that you didn't get to see the set because you live way down in Carbondale, Illinois, huh? Wrong! You can stream a re-broadcast of the entire show right here:

Maybe you saw them play that insane show at Boobys (r.i.p.) last summer.. but Ahleuchatistas are back again, this Sunday at Gatsby's with Small Time London Thug. If you missed them last time, they are a thing to experience for sure.. they're on John Zorn's record label, have made a number of treks across Europe, have been featured in the NY Times and on NPR, and former Mandat drummer Ryan Oslance will blow your mind. Be there!

Never Forget

That Ty Segall / JEFF show was a year ago today and I'm STILL thinkin' about how sweet it was.. rumor has it he'll be coming back to Carby early 2011, but if you're like me and can't wait that long, he'll be playing twice at Goner Fest 7 next week.. Memphis is pretty close.. if you haven't heard Ty's new album you're missing out.. There aren't any official videos out yet but I found this one and damn is it weird...

Be on the lookout.. We haven't heard a release date yet but rumor has it is is soon..
