New York! Our 2013 CMJ showcase is coming next week! October 18th in Brooklyn at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. GOOD RIDDANCE returns to New York for the first time in over 6 years! You get The Flatliners playing for the first time since their new album came out, Western Addiction playing for the first time in over 7 years, hometown heroes Morning Glory ready to showcase some new songs, and the absolutely shredding Night Birds as our special guests. It does NOT get much better than this! But, if you’d rather tour the New York harbor while watching some old school punk, we’ll be stripping our showcase down and heading for the Hudson on the infamous Rocks Off Boat Cruise show, where you’ll be treated to (literally) rockin’ sets from GOOD RIDDANCE, Night Birds and Western Addiction! Because we’re all vinyl nerds, we’ll be pressing a special limited edition Fat CMJ 7" which can ONLY be purchased at these two shows! The 7" will have exclusive songs from Good Riddance & Night Birds, plus brand new songs from The Flatliners and Western Addiction. The 7" will be pressed on four different colors and can be procured at the Western Addiction merch booth. Say hi to the fellas and pick up their new 7" Pines too. Don’t fucking miss these shows!
We are very sad to report the passing of Bad Astronaut’s drummer, Erik Herzog, an exceptionally talented musician and lifelong member of the Santa Barbara music scene. Our deepest condolences to Erik’s family and to our friends in Bad Astronaut: Joey, Marko, Todd, Angus, and Thom.
