Oozing Wound wins “Best Cover Art” for 2013

It has been decided. The round table of Album Art Judges have made up their minds and declared that Chicago's OOZING WOUND have provided us with the "Best Cover Art" for all of 2013. Judge Milton Cornbeater has this to say about the decision: "For the rest of the year, all items might as well just be blank, with simply the band name and the title of the record, cause no one is going to top this shit." Cheers to our friends OOZING WOUND - see em at the Bottle for their Record Release Show with THE BODY & TOUPEE on Thursday, October 24. It's FREE with RSVP!

Wrekmeister Harmonies @ Bohemian National Cemetery – Saturday, June 22nd, 2013

This week we're hosting a show at Bohemian National Cemetery and it's also the night of a Supermoon. It’s going to be perfect. Literally, we could not imagine hosting an evening such as this – experimental melancholy and searing ensemble performances – in a better location. And you know what? We think you'd be into this sort of thing. Come spend your Saturday in Bohemian National Cemetery, as Wrekmeister Harmonies and a renowned roster of collaborators serenade you into darkness. The performance will take place near the Mausoleum (not among the graves  – we aren’t monsters!) at the south-east corner of Pulaski and Bryn Mawr. Doors will open at 7 p.m., and WREKMEISTER HARMONIES set will begin at 9:30, one hour after sunset. This is a one-of-a-kind event that is not to be missed! "Reflective drones grow and decay, forming waves of overlapping sound that evolve into a gigantic roar of distorted guitar. Searing, disembodied howls and pummeling drums signal a shift from mournful to harrowing as Robinson and his ensemble lurch forward into the abyss."
