Hello friends.. Good morning.. happy Thursday!!
Ok, here we go...
We have made a change to THE QUEERS contest. Instead of requesting a RAMONES cover song, were just asking for a link to your music. Weve partnered with PUNKNEWS.ORG and have a contest up through them, so I will simply send the link for the contest here:
But yeah… just a quick reminder. This is a contest for your band to open up for the QUEERS for their tour in NOVEMBER.
Ok, more stuff!
For the past few years weve tried to put on a DIY generator show in the parking lot of the OAKLAND COLISEUM before an Oakland Athletics game, but Ive officially decided to skip this year. No other reason than Ive been busy. But I promise to do one next year as I know how much fun they are. Sorry to those who were looking forward to this year, but again I promise next year will happen and will rock harder than you can ever imagine.
Next week we will begin a pre-order for the SMOKING POPES-GET FIRED re-release. It will be similar to the SUNDOWNER/SKIBA deals, but this time we will only be offering up 75 packages. The package will include two 12 inches on Orange and Green see through vinyl. It will include the CD and a T-SHIRT. So yup.. set your calendar for next Wednesday as Im sure these will sell through immediately.
A friend of mine who had proudly collected and owned every release on asian man has recently ran into some financial woes and unfortunately needs to sell his collection to pay rent, so if for nothing else, if you just want to see a killer collection then go here and ooh and ahhh.
but if youre someone whos been wanting to complete a pretty killer collection in one shot. Well, heres your chance.
Former Wardogs vocalist Greg DeHoedt has a new band called Hounds and Harlots and he is releasing a charity 7 inch that will include a donation to plea for peace. They have started a kickstarter fundraiser to get started. You can find all the info. on the below link. Asian man will get an exclusive color for this release.
While on the plea for peace subject, Solidarity is putting out a benefit compilation for the foundation. 30 artists on one cd. You can find more info. here at http://punknews.org/article/39594
And thats it for now. Be well friends.
Peace, mike park
