You can catch some cool, funny moments including some shots of the dudes playing Goner Fest, chilling with The King Khan & BBQ Show, firing off some guns (and farts) and more!

More importantly listen to theses Aussies here:

Club Bohemia GBG
Well look what we have here. An evening of local Rock ‘n’ Roll slime prime time on Friday, October 24th at Club Bohemia (Cantab Lounge basement) in Cambridge.

Some of the juiciest of slime is smeared all over this show. We’ll be popping our Big Buck Hunter cherries, a must see. Perhaps, you have seen them before OR you can pop yours with us too. So much popping going on here.

The chilll psych pop waves of Phaze is in the house. It’s a mixed cocktail of dream pop, garage, and psychedelia to keep you twirling into the night.

The demented outsider Rolling Rock kitsch of Gangbang Gordon is always a trick or treat to fill your little bellies.

Ravi Shavi, one of Providence’s finest, will headline and steal your soul with their sizzling, revolution rock. Put your ass to the floor.

Big Mess New Album and Tour (8/29-10/2)

Big Mess Album
Hey all, Big Mess, a local favorite of ours for a few years now, is heading out on a big ass tour and you’d be a damn fool not to attend. Better yet, pick up their debut full-length LP You Are My Sunshine (via Midnight Werewolf Records) on September 16th. Ahh you may think sunshine is too lighthearted for Big Mess, but damn that sunshine song always disturbed me as a child. It still gives me the creeps. Why would they take your sunshine away? I don’t get it. So, it fits with Big Mess is what I’m saying.

Sneak peek of new album here on their bandcamp:
