There's a lot of exciting stuff coming up. First of all, there's an amazing compilation that has just been recorded. More than a dozen bands from OTTAWA converged upon CAPITAL REHEARSAL STUDIOS over a few weekends to do some recording for the upcoming GOING GAGA RECORDS compilation. THE CREEPS, THE VISITORS, HOLY COBRAS, BEACH BLANKETS, THE FELINES, SEDATIVES, THE WHITE WIRES, SUPPOSITORIES, ETC. ETC. ETC. This record will be amazing and will ideally be out for the second annual GOING GAGA WEEKEND which is coming up on JUNE 11 - 13.
A lot of records are coming out in the next few months. BRUISED TONGUE RECORDS are putting out cassettes by MALE NURSE & SAVAGE CRIMES which will be available at the RELEASE PARTY which will take place at RAMPAGE on MARCH 27th and will include performances by both bands. Get there early or else you'll miss out. Show is free. Tapes are 5 bucks which include a download code since you don't own a tape player cause you're a poser.
Go to the DOMINION TAVERN the next night (MARCH 28th) to help support CHUO in their quest for funds. PLUNT from montreal opens followed by 90 POUNDS OF UGLY and the night will be capped off by SEDATIVES. The show is 5 to 10 dollars depending on how much you love community radio. i'd recommend getting there early because it'll probably sell out.
CHUO is hosting another event on SATURDAY APRIL 4th at EXILE INFOSHOP. PUNK ROCK BINGO is the name of the game and doors are at 9 pm. There will be beer, there will be BINGO and there will be PUNK ROCK being spun by LUKE NUCLEAR. There is no way this won't be fun.
JAPANTHER are playing at SOUNDS UNLIKELY on APRIL 5th. The show starts at 1:30 sharp so don't be stupid. It's PWYC which means you give them everything you have in your pockets and more. CRAZY OCEAN are opening. There is also no way that this won't be fun.
MOTHER'S CHILDREN are have a 7" release party on april 17th. This will be a raging party with guests THE WHITE WIRES , SAVAGE CRIMES & the brand new ZEBRASSIERES featuring members of BEACH BLANKETS & THE CREEPS. it's going down at the LEGION on KENT.
TONS of awesome stuff is being worked on for the next few months including THE GOODNIGHT LOVING, TYVEK & FEAR OF LIPSTICK,
