This month, people! Champaign, IL's indie-rock legends POSTER CHILDREN (est. 1987) are joining us on stage for a pair of epic rock shows.
FRIDAY, OCT. 16
CACTUS CLUB, Milwaukee, WI
FRIDAY, OCT. 30
BOTTOM LOUNGE, Chicago, IL
8 PM, $12 Adv, $14 day of show
Buy tickets here!
Also of note: The Oct. 16 show will also feature our dear friends white, wrench, conservatory., who will be playing their second last Milwaukee show EVER on this night (yeah, they're breaking up, and breaking our hearts). And the Oct. 30 show will also feature our Madison pals Droids Attack, who aren't breaking up any time soon. Seriously, these triple bills are absurd with awesome.
Meanwhile, work still progresses on our next EP, which we hope to start recording with Thom Geibel of the aforementioned WWC this month. We'll be recording "X-13D" and "All Hail Magnets," which we've been playing live, as well as new songs called "Spy in the House of Fuck," "Minotaur Documentation," and "Someone Take the Damn Money," as well as a couple others. We'll let you know how it goes. We're hoping this sees the light of day on Latest Flame Records sometime next year.
Until next time...OCTOBER 16! OCTOBER 30! BE THERE!

So hey. We're home! After thousands of miles and a few hundred spent on new tires, we're back from a pretty excellent two weeks. Great shows and good times. We have a long, long list of people to thank, so i'll try to list them now, and apologies to anyone i forget:
Self-Evident and Sauce for the show in Minneapolis, and Mike from Mise en Place for the crash space; Michael Wo for the guitar amp; The fine folks of the Wisco in Madison; Matt and Project Noise in Bismarck; Mike and the Badlander in Missoula (and a hello to When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth), and Wil for the crash space, bass guitar and case; Police Teeth, The Bismarck, The Funhouse, Jordn, and Al in Seattle; Nate Carson, Seth and Spider Test, Rapids, and The Know in Portland; The Hemlock, Mount Vicious, Pegataur, Lisa Hix (for the tire hookup and crash space!), Conan Neutron, Chris Bolig, and all our Wisconsin pals in San Francisco; Josh and SpokeShaver and the Curtis St. Tavern in Denver; PolarOPPOSITEbear and Kirby's in Wichita; The fine folks at Bottomfeeder Bay in Warrensburg; Lemp Arts Center, Carlin, and the Conformists in St. Louis; and Beati Paoli and the kids of the Haunted Basement in Des Moines. Shit, that's a lot of people.
I still have some tour blog left to write, but in the meantime, here are part 3 and part 4, which take you through San Francisco. We'll see you in October for the two shows we're playing with (OMG) POSTER CHILDREN!
