Back from Austin. Saw a shitload of good bandsm, just to name a few: WOLVHAMMER, BATILLUS, GRAYCEON, LECHEROUS GAZE, IRON AGE, LO-PAN, CHRISTIAN MISTRESS, HOWL, THE SECRET, PONTIAK, & WHITE HILLS. And we supported the locals too. We return to LA to find the RABBITS from Portland, OR playing the next two nights - 7 PM this evening at Vacation Vinyl and tomorrow at Three Clubs with VAZ (ex-HAMMERHEAD) and HARASSOR. The RABBITS have a new record that you can listen to here.
I have to say: this scratches my "I Miss KARP" itch just as well, or perhaps even better, than Big Business do these days. "The Flow Below" in particular is a fucking jam.
And if the name HEPA/TITUS is unfamiliar, the band is led by one Kevin Rutmanis of COWS/MELVINS/TOMAHAWK fame. They open up the festivities at 9 PM.
