Actually alot of this flyer is a lie.
Vitamin X is playing. Religious As Fuck is not playing, our singer Keith can’t get of work, next time you see him step on his foot. And Gomek isn’t even a band anymore. Still Vitamin X are from Holland and they came to the Environmental Youth Crunch show when we played in their town. Worth the drive.

Then on Thursday…

Check out Rejouissance. This will be super fun and chill night.

Then on Friday….

Damn straight.  Actually, Republicorpse isn’t playing this show anymore and 2Legit is.  Which isn’t a big deal,  because Brainstorm is amazing, they have an LP coming on Dead Tank Records soon too.

Finally your Saturday night should consist of this show. 

2/23 @ Doozers Pub – Can Kickers, Devil Runs The Truckstop, Super Aids, Helios Eye.
…..
..
And then next thing I know I’m outta here with Environmental Youth Crunch.

The Talkies / Bogda Art Show / Tangerine Festival Photo Recap

January 31, 2008

From one weekend to the next…

george.jpg

“Night of the Living Dead” is playing February 1st at 11:55 p.m and February 2nd at 9:30 p.m.  George Romero will be providing commentary on the Feb 2nd showing.

Visit thetalkies.net for ticket information.

“The Talkies is the long-time pet project-come true of founder Tim Massett that first came to fruition in October 2006.  It is essentially cinema shouting back against the DVD/home theater. It’s a 35mm, two-night event. The first night we screen a classic film in 35mm. The next night, not only does the director join us, but he or she also provides running commentary throughout the screening. The audience watches and listens along to both the director and the film. It’s taking something the DVD offers (the alternate commentary track) and making it oh so much better.”

Twitch blog mentions the event here.
Joey Marchy at Urban Jacksonville mentions it here.

The Talkies’ first guest was Herschell Gordon Lewis “talkied” along to a super great print of his classic film 2000 Maniacs and even sold tickets to his own event from the San Marco Theatre’s box office.

New Years, No Time..

January 9, 2008

The last 5 weekends I’ve been almost exclusively out of town on tour with bands or at fests. That, coupled with my full time job that I DO need to be in Jacksonville to do, has left this site fairly sparse in the way of updates. Here’s some catch up.

Random Update 2.0

* We’ll be changing our hours of operation soon. Starting the week of January 21st we’ll be open only Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Details on the times soon.

* This Sunday, Jan 13th at Doozers Pub (7636 North Main Street Jacksonville, Florida 32208) – these three great bands…

mekagont.jpg

Mekago N.T – Southern Florida’s newest thrashing maniacs. Pummeling fast, raw and heavy. Five tracks of old school heavy grindcore with a twinge of dbeat. These are surprisingly lengthy and brutal songs with heart. Features members from TORCHE and SHITSTORM. Listen

howl.jpg
Howl
(RI) – “Bong ripping, labyrinth metal.” listen

judelive.jpg
Saint Jude (RI) – listen

* Dylan, your favorite Shanty Town Bartender, as well as guitarist for the local band Shitagoddamn, has started scanning the formitable pile of punk show fliers of Jacksonville days past. He’s been uploading them to a flickr account here.

* RADO is pulling together a neighborhood watch group for Riverside.  Read about it here, you know – before you get shot.

Events, Lawsuit Roundup…

December 20, 2007

lawsuit.jpg
Fucked Up vs. Rolling Stone.
Fucked Up vs. Camel Cigarettes.
Read about it here.  Some ad where Camel was name dropping some bands.

Here’s some http://vivalavinyl.org commentary on the lawsuit…

User: Mattdealsrecords
“Rolling Stone has been the music industry schills for 35+ years and RJ Reynolds is a corporate death machine. If Fucked Up could bankrupt both companies in 1 lawsuit I’d call them the punkest band ever.”

User: Bazdmeg
“i just find it utterly fascinating how Fucked Up has stopped at nothing to climb and climb to find the uppermost “acceptable” eschelon of so-called “indie” status – being on MTV, Vice, lame cooking shows, these weird “collaborations,” etc, much of this organized by Jade Tree and their tentacles of A&R connections, while at the same time trying so hard to retain “underground cred”… And then they act surprised when something like this happens? Come on… Its like, this is what you’ve been signing up for!”

User: Setyourselfonfire
“RJ Reynolds almost certainly hired an outside firm for that ad, almost every ad is done that way now. And it’s pretty stupid to assume that they and these ad firms don’t know what all trends and subculture are like. It’s not middle aged guys in suits who are making all the calls here, they do extensive research, hire young people to discover trends and scour college campuses, etc. I saw an interesting documentary in one of my classes last semester on this thing called “The Merchants of Cool”.

Also RJ Reynolds also didn’t expect that after seeing the ad loads of hipster kids would rush out to the store and start buying loads of camels. However such a kid who already smoked might develop a more positive view toward the brand by associating it with his favorite bands, much like many of us no doubt have toward Morton Salt thanks to Jawbreaker. I know we like to think that people in underground subcultures are smart enough not to buy a product just because their favorite band likes it like 12 year olds who buy shoes or drinks because of their favorite athlete endorsing it, but let’s face it, many are.

And that’s where the problem lies. Implying that Fucked Up supports using Camel cigarettes without their permission and without providing them any direct compensation is really shitty. ”

Thoughts?
