Propagandhi up for songwriting award, vote for them!

Propagandhi imparted me with these astute words this morning, "Chris here. A wise person once said, “Awards are like hemorrhoids: eventually every asshole gets one”. To commemorate Propagandhi’s song A Speculative Fiction the band has been nominated for a Canadian creative songwriting contest. Go here to cast your ballot and I guess you can vote once a day until Oct. 12th. There’s a $5,000 prize and if they win they will donate a portion of the proceeds to the Haiti Action Network and The Welcome Place. Help out your fellow humans by voting for the boys!

Baseball’s Worst Team Fires Punk’s Best Cover Band

So you may have read here about the Gimmes pulling a Bill Buckner at the Pirates game over the weekend. Apparently dudes with sunflower seeds in their goatees and giant foam fingers didn’t take kindly to the boys putting the magic touch on their favorite jams and the band was asked NOT to return to the stadium for their final two shows! Spike commented, “That’s the most people that ever booed me in my life” and I think Dave’s expression sums it up perfectly. How could 32,000 people not get the joke? Boy are they really going to be kicking themselves in a…uh, well…maybe not. The Pirates are 51-81 though so up your butt Jobu.

Gimme Gimmes at the ballpark, see the new record!

Get this, Me First And The Gimme Gimmes will be playing the Pittsburgh Pirates “Skyblast” on August 24th, 25th, and 26th. Not sure what that entails, but it’s a homecoming of sorts for frontman Spike who hails from the Iron City and has the Heinz Ketchup and Steelers tats to prove it. Maybe the Caper will channel the spirit of Roberto Clemente? It should also be noted that the Gimmes are wrapping up their next record, Love Their Country, which comes out October 17th.

New Dead To Me video!

Go see their new vid for the song “Special Professional” over in the Media section. It’s kinda like one of those PBS “Over San Francisco” shows. You get to really take in the sights of our fare city. Dead To Me will be doing a West Coast tour with The Briggs very soon, and have BIG tour plans for October and November. On a side, there was a bike crash in this video but the band members tell us it took place “off camera”. Uh huh.
