So. If I were the type to hold a grudge I’d never mention Suburban Home Records again and I’d give all SH artist who rolled through town wedgies (except Tim Barry, I ain’t fucking with that man) but I’m not that guy. Nope. Instead of holding a grudge I am gonna go to the virgil hates ninebullets Front Porch Musing / Suburban Home Showcase featuring…well, pretty much everyone; Micah Schnabel, The Only Sons, State Champion, Look, Mexico, Austin Lucas, American Aquarium, Glossary and Two Cow Garage. It’s gonna be a great show and I fully expect to get drunk on Virgil’s dime. The show is Saturday at Friends Bar and on the real, it’s gonna be pretty fucking epic. I’ll be the dude in the Florida State Seminoles hat. Come say hi. I’ll get you a drink on Virgil.
On another note…Suburban Home has opened the pre-orders for the official Suburban Home release of Micah Schnabel’s (Two Cow Garage) solo album, When The Stage Lights Go Dim. Folks, this really isn’t the album you wanna sleep on. When I originally reviewed it I said, “This album is perfect for winding down in the middle of the night with a whiskey while you wait for the amplifier ring to subside a little. While it might not be a very easy cd to get right now, it’s easy to put it on the Essential Listening list, and I suggest you put the effort into acquiring it.” Well, now it’s real damn easy to get, so do it cause it’s still Essential Listening.
And finally, I know I slept on the last SH comp for damned near 4 months before mentioning it but not this time. Vol. II of Virgil’s hiphop mixtape culture inspired comps has come out and once again Virgil is asking folks to get it out by whatever means necessary and since I am all about getting the music to y’all I will oblige. Once again, I have 4 copies one more copy of this sumbitch that I’ll give away with a ninebullets.net sticker to the first 4 people who email me their mailing address and for those of you that don’t visit the site enough times a day to get in on the giveaway I have a download link for y’all…but I expect more from you next time.
