Period Girls Stain NYC/Let's Press Some Records
This past weekend, Kit's other band, Period Girls got to rock and roll all over the streets of NYC. First they rocked. Then, they rolled. They rolled from block to block, down dark alley-ways, skinning their knees along the way. They rolled right over the Hudson, and back again. They rolled through Time Square, rolled right over the Major Deegan, rolled through the walls of the Lincoln and Holland tunnels, and rolled right into the arms of authorities, who charged them with excessive rolling, and causing a nuisance. That's how much rock and roll occurred.
On Friday, the Girls played Death by Audio in Brooklyn w/the Weird Fantasy Band, Unnatural Helpers, and Passive Aggressor. Then on Saturday, they got to play with Short Dark Strangers, Methodist, and Savage Pinkos! I must say, Friday's show was fucking great. Saturday, well I was parking the tour car for the band while they played. Were they good? Sure, why not.
So, what's up with brick mower? Hmmm, a new lathe cut 7'' is coming out this fall on Stumparumper Records. The records will be limited to 100, with a newer version of Box Turtle on side-A and a cover of Guided by Voices "Exit Flagger" on Side-B. I'm gonna take a shot and say that'll be out as the weather's getting colder (almost too cold).
That's it for now. Some shows at the end of this month:
September 23rd: Meat Town USA w/Granny Frost (IL) and Banned Books (NJ) in New Brunswick,NJ
September 25th: Dream Castle w/Granny Frost, Banned Books, and Mike Bruno in South Philly, PA
September 30th: Little Richard's w/the Maple Stave (NC) + more in New Brunswick, NJ.
October 1st: Party eXpo w/Divets (RI) in Brooklyn, NY
Also, still looking for some mid-west tour help in IL, WI, MN, PA if anyone's got some suggestions that we haven't unearthed yet.
Here's some pictures of girls at Death by Audio from Labor Day Friday:
