White Lung Drop Acoustic Vid For “Wrong Star” | Catch Them Sept. 9 @ The End

White Lung-620

Canadian punk rockers White Lung have been a mainstay in the DIY punk scene in their hometown of Vancouver since 2006, and have also been making waves south of their border since the release of their first two albums highly acclaimed albums, It’s The Evil (2010) and Sorry! (2012), via Deranged Records.  Their most recent release, Deep Fantasy, just dropped in June on new label Domino.  The first videos from that latest effort are starting to surface, and we have one for “Drown With The Monster” and a stripped down version of “Wrong Star,” featuring guest vocals from Katie Crutchfield (dba Waxahatchie).

You can peep both of the videos after the jump, and, if femme fronted, in your face punk music is your jam, make sure that you mark your calendar for Sept. 9 to see them at The End.  Tickets for that show are available right here for $10.

[Preview] TONIGHT Les Claypool’s Duo de Twang and Reformed Whores Play 3rd And Lindsley


Get ready to wave your freak flags high, because legendary bassists and the creator of alternative, progressive funk-metal band Primus, Les Claypool is in town with his latest side project, an Americana, bluegrass two piece called Duo de Twang. Known for his ability to blend multiple genres together into a soupy, wonderfully unique mix of sounds, Claypool has enlisted the help of a high school friend, and M.I.R.V guitarist, Brian Kehoe to fill out his new acoustic hubbub. Unfortunately this 18 + show at 3rd and Lindsley is SOLD OUT, but maybe you can pull some strings and find your way in.

Comedic country singers Reformed Whores will kick things off at 8 pm (doors at 6) and from what we’ve heard, they’re a perfect complement to Claypool’s quirky stage persona. Learn more about both acts after the jump and get a taste of the awesomeness you’ll be sure not to miss next time!
