TURNED OFF

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 18, 2010 by slothtapes

Jess just sent the paperwork out for the new TURNED OFF tapes, featuring their recording from January’s session with STEVE ROCHE at PERMANENT HEARING DAMAGE in Philly, backed with demos of their’s recorded by RICK from DEAF NOT DEAD/TROUBLED HIPS last year. It all sounds amazing and brutal, like early FIGHT AMP cut with Bleach-era NIRVANA. The run of a hundred will be on sky blue cassettes designed by our sister JESS EWING, and the j-cards’re designed and hand screened by NATE WELLS of TUNNEL fame.

HOLY DIRT and RAT HEALER are going to be on the road for six days this October, check out the projected itinerary and let them know if you can help them out but setting up a show or letting them sleep on yr floor. They’re all nice folks and not at all standoffish.

TUE 12 – NY
WED 13 – CT
THU 14 – MA
FRI 15 – RI
SAT 16 – NJ
SUN 17 – NY

Lastly, we are bummed to announce that POWERPUKEHAUS is closing it’s doors at the end of June. What a great bunch of dudes to let us put on so many sick shows there. Thanks eternally to NATE, JOEL, ALEX, and IVAN for the dedication to us all! Keep your ears peeled for annoncements of a final show, and for now make sure you go to see KEPI GHOULIE at the PUNK ROCK PROM on the 23, followed by THE WASTOIDS at homegrown!

Yours,
Sloth Tapes

We’re very lucky to have heavy doom miserablists THOU (Baton Rouge, LA) stopping in DE this Friday to play an afternoon show on their way to Philadelphia! The show will start at 2pm sharp at Powerpukehaus (198 Madison, Newark, DE) and must be over by 5pm, so be on time. Opening will be crust-sludge smartasses HOLY DIRT with a fresh tape of new demos recorded by Rich and Sam, and heavy psych-strumental gurus PAGAN WOLF RITUAL. Also, if it’s nice out we’ll break out the vegan grill and be selling vurgers and not-dogs for a buck a pop. This show is free, but please bring cash to donate or booze to share.
