Event Horizon

Just some words about what's up and coming for us around here... We've got a few shows in the works. Sagas is performing next Monday 5/30 at a little Memorial Day BBQ with Weyes Blood, who is supporting her new album on Not Not Fun, along with Angels in America (Ecstatic Peace) and local faves Tusk Lord. Details are vague, but I believe this will be at Helter Shelter. Then on Wednesday 6/1 WaterFinder will be shaking the dust off to perform with Yellow Crystal Star, Pregnant Spore, both from Baltimore, plus locals Triangle & Rhino. Catch this one at The Shop.

Later this year you can look for a Dire Wolves release on Weird Forest. In the meantime you can catch WF honcho Davy Bui on tour with the excellent Garrincha & the Stolen Elk. With two killer tapes already under their belt (on 905 and Stunned, respectively), they'll be heading this way, hopefully with their new CD/LP Void in tow. You can catch them here in Pittsburgh at the Shop on Wed. 7/6 with Gangwish and a special collaboration between WaterFinder and our friend Pete Fosco from Cincinnati. Pete, of course, is the man behind Greenup Industries, and he can coax some of the most fried textures out of a guitar this side of the Mississippi. Should be a burner!

Also be on the lookout this summer for some new tapes on Biological Radio from Sal Farina (Sundog Peacehouse) and Great Blue Heron (Ian from Dire Wolves) as well as Inez Lightfoot. More on that later...

Lunar Ramblings

Greetings all! Spring is in full effect here at Crickhollow and the releases keep coming! Our own Inez Lightfoot just came out with a killer split tape with
Je Suis le Petit Chevalier (a.k.a. Felicia Atkinson) courtesy of Stunned Records and boy does it sound great!!! It's especially inspiring that, in a primarily male-dominated sphere, two amazing women can be found on one powerhouse release! Out of stock at the source, it can be had from the fine folks at Discriminate. Look for Inez's next release Gatherer in the coming weeks on Ruralfaune. Later this summer we will be releasing her Nature Songs here on Biological Radio. Stay tuned!

Also coming soon is the premier release by Psychic Frost, which is the name finally given to the long-standing collaboration between Matt McDowell and Mike Tamburo. That will be available from the boys at
Deep Water Acres very soon.

And for those who haven't gotten one of the Sagas LPs yet, get one while you can! They're available from
Greenup Industries, from Discriminate Music, or directly from us by clicking the "Add to Cart" button below:

That's about it for now. Be well!
