Unzip the October

The title of this blog came from a Slogan generator online. I also enjoyed, "Life's Straighter without October" and "Because October's Complicated Enough."

Hey cool kids. Finally, the weather’s cooling off and our split-personality disorders and economic frustrations are heating up! Yes, October has struck, and the wheels are finally staying on for a change. Because our bandwagon is generally a rickety one.

But brick mower and Period Girls November tour is shaping up nicely and is almost fully rounded out. We’ll be coming to a town near you soon. Here’s what we got so far:

All shows w/brick mower and Period Girls

11/4- Goodbye Blue Monday- Brooklyn NY 8 pm

115/- Danger Danger Gallery- Philadelphia PA w/ Dry Feet, v-boys 9 PM
11/6/- UMass Lowell, Lowell MA (ask for details) 6 pm
11/7- Rebel Sound Records, Pittsfield MA (matinee show 2 pm)
11/9- Café Bourbon St., Columbus OH
11/10- The Modern Post- Schererville, IN 8 pm
11/11- Granny Frost Loft- Chicago, IL w/ Granny Frost
11/12- Basement 414- Lansing, MI
11/13- TBA in Cleveland, OH
11/14- Helter Shelter- Pittsburgh, PA


If you know anyone in these great American towns, feel free to spread the word. I’ll post one final revitalized schedule as time goes on. Also, as you can see Saturday November 13th is TBA in Cleveland. If you know anyone, or can be of help, we’d love some!

Also, out in time for the tour (hopefully) is our new lathe cut, clear 7’’ on Stumparumper Records. This is going to be a super rare item, pressed in a ridiculously small batch. Does that make us cool? I looked in the mirror this morning and I can already tell you the answer is "no." The artworks done by gig-poster extraordinaire Ryan Duggan, and will be black ink on yellow covers for those who care about such mind-altering minutiae.

Side A:
Box Turtle ('10 recording of it)

Side B:
Exit Flagger (Guided by Voices cover)

Again, hopefully be out in late October. Let us know the deal. We can put one to the side for you if you want one.

That’s that for now.

Couple NJ shows at the end of the month to report on:

10/27- Brighton Bar w/ The Dreadnoughts (crazy Celtic polka-punk from Vancouver), The Discontent 8 PM $8 18+ (a lot of 8’s I just typed there)

10/31- MEAT TOWN USA (Halloween covers show doing Superchunk w/Erin Fancy and Marty Leahy) 4 PM (early show so you can go trick or treating after)

"And all because the lady's love October"
