Catch Daddy Issues, The Jag, Microwave Mountain, Reality Something, Sad Baxter, Idle Bloom,& More | TONIGHT @ Spewfest 3


The third annual installment of local indie label Cold Lunch Recordings’ epic showcase, Spewfest 3 is so packed with amazing talent, we can hardly believe they’re all in town at the same time! As with all things associated with the tastemakers at Cold Lunch, the bands on the various bills will all be psych/garage/punk/lo-fi friendly, and this year’s event boasts two venues, three stages, and a staggering 31 performers. In addition, food will be available from Taco Terry’s Tacos and Burritos, plus liquid lights by Silver Cord Cinema and projection art by eNIMAL of The Southern Demon Herd will be displayed at some of the shows.

Speaking of shows, once you get into the nitty gritty of these various stage lineups, you’ll notice some prominent local favorites we’ve covered before, like Daddy Issues, Reality Something, Idle Bloom, Lasso Spells, Sad Baxter, The Medium, Really Nice Guys, Solar Twin, Fever Blush, Keeps, and Diamond Carter, as well was psych rock quintet The Jag, garage Americana rockers Microwave Mountain, scussy punk outfit Butthole, acid pop performers Twen, experimental post-punks Telefones, plus Leggy, Spodee Boy, Pinkest, DancersBoa, Kinhin, Supermelt, Black Moon Mother, Country Westerns, SEXX, Stuyedeyed, Lady Legs, Spirit Week, Flesh Eater, and Lacquer. For just $12, you get access to both venues and all the bands, but keep in mind that while The East Room offers entry for those of you who are 18+, the The Cobra is strictly a 21+ venue.

Music starts at The East Room around 4:15 p.m. and will be raging well into the wee hours of the morning, so pace yourselves people.

Locals Sexx Latest Artists To Be Featured in War Memorial Attic Sessions


Local party punk rockers Sexx are the next band to be featured in the super intimate, stripped down War Memorial Auditorium Attic Sessions performance series. You may remember us covering these sessions before (read this postthis post, or this post), and it has quickly become one of our favorite local Youtube video series. After the jump, you can see the latest from the backstage, private lounge jam session, and feel free to waste the rest of your day watching the rest of the curators’ back catalog.

As for the featured band, Sexx has been our radar for a while, after dropping their debut self-titled EP (2012), a rightious single “Surf City” (2013),  and even a Christmas music sampler entitled  Sexxmas (2014). Word on the street is a new LP is planed for this year, and you can also catch them playing as part of a Weezer tribute show, billed as “The Blue Album vs Pinkerton”, at Mercy Lounge on Oct. 4th for just $7, so don’t miss it! But first things first; click on after the jump and get hip to the rowdy up-and-coming rock band.
