TOMORROW, WE BLOW UP THE LITTERBOX
Ok, so we are not actually blowing up The Litterbox. Nor are we, "blowin' it up" like a hip rap superstar might wax about on his wax stax. The Litterbox though, is unfortunately closing. We got to play our first show here on October 22, '09 with Batrider from New Zealand. It was fucking amazing. And since then we've gotten to play here 3 more times (tomorrow, our forth). The people here have been great to us, especially Kelli of Period Girls fame. We've only been coming here a short time but regardless, it's been such a cool spot that so many people have been a part of, and meant a lot to a ton of basement dwellers. But, in the past week, the reality that the house is closing its door to shows has started to feel very melancholy (& the infinite sadness-zwan). Such things are easily taken for granted. Appreciated at the time, but it really sucks when you can't look forward to it anymore.
So, alright, I'm done getting all teary eyed. Maybe it's the couple beers I just had. Many other bands deserve to play the last show here. Some were in mind (i.e. Screaming Females, but you know, they're on tour), but it will be a great show with a lot of friends and band families getting together. Come out to The Littebox/CLL in New Brunswick tomorrow night @ 6:30 if you can. Message us for the address or ask a punk.
The Lineup, you ask?:
-brick mower: who? bunch a' numbskulls if ya ask me
-The Timid Roosevelts: great fucking female-fronted punky-power-pop songs!
-Period Girls (Kit from brick mower, Kelli from Savantes, & Colleen from Ass_Cherios Guestbook play their 1st show)
-Old Snake (Stefan, from In Air's otha' band, 'cause In Air couldn't play)
-Jalopy (the name says it all, and they fucking rule)
