Come out tomorrow Memorial Day and make some memories with us. We are be cooking up the flavor and the jams so come out early so you can taste everything. So try not to get too day drunk and even if you do try to stumble in early to get some grub in your tum tum so you can continue to party till the break of dawn. We have 3 bands coming in from such exotic places as Raleigh, North Carolina and Louisville, Kentucky not to mention or very own Jacksonville buds are coming down. Tapes & shirts will be on deck so bring that cheddar.
Hello you freaks welcome back. You heard we were gonna be dropping that knowledge every week on you. So I’m here to deliver. First off Summer is upon us its all hot & steamy outside and the nights are sure to be long. This week we are releasing GAR38 Sad Jeremy – ‘Bite Me’ this little pink tape is sure to please your tape deck. This will be up in the store on the 27th and you can grip this bad boy in person on the 30th at Uncle Lou’s for the Uncle Mill’s Memorial Monday Madness! with Naked Naps from Raleigh,NC + State Champion from Louisville,KY + Fever Hands from Jacksonville + Sad Jeremy + your boiz Radicalized Youth & extra special guest Marcos Encinias(Larf, Marky & The Sharks) will perform solo at the top of the night.
Alright lets get the word out on where to get it in this week. Monday if you haven’t played bingo with Nadeem of The Wildtones at Will’s Pub for Nadeem’s Cheap Bingo Night be sure not to miss the inevitable train-wreck and possibly win some prizes. If you’ve gone to hang posters up like we have this month it would be hard for you to not notice that Fringe Festival is upon us. If you are gonna be in and around Loch Haven Park Friday the 27th you would be pissed to miss Evil Virgins at the Body//Talk event. Also going down on Friday is CJ Ramone w/ Broken Gold + Rushmore + The Areolas @ Backbooth downtown. Evil Virgins from Melbourne will be dropping their new tape on Godless America June 3rd but all you super fans can get your grip on at their Tape Release show on the 28th in Melbourne @ The Boondocks w/ The Welzeins + Loftboys & Hogwaller. Then on Sunday the 29th the first ever Milk District Market is happening Pasty Cline will be ripping it up at Spacebar this will be in the day ending at 7pm then you got two shows to choose from for your kicks. You could choose to come back to Spacebar for the return of Autarx from their tour we told you about last week also playing will be Moon Jelly & Time or you could head over for some thrills on Mills with Drug @ Uncle Lou’s w/ deadmeat + Expert Timing & Fire Flame.
Well that’s all the new new I can think of right now have a killer week and keep coming back for that party plan and grip some hot tapes in the store so we can have nice things.
Since the overloads at Facebook like to extort us for money just for us to get our message out to you fans. So we are going to start to take a pro-active approach by updating the site weekly starting today. In these weekly updates we’ll try to summarize what has been going on and concentrate it in one post instead of hoping you ran into through the ether.
Lets see where do we start? Well since it’s Monday the 16th tonight if I were you I wouldn’t want to miss Autarx play their tour kick off show at the legendary Uncle Lou’s LMGA. We had the pleasure of making their tour only super limited edition cassette. There is only fifty of these that exist and the only way you can get your hands on them is to grip one from the band at the dates below:

So its been a few days since we have made it back from Austin for our showcases. Its taken some time to decompress and really take it all in. I still have trouble recalling everything that transpired over the 3 days of showcases in Texas smack dab in the middle of one of the biggest music conferences on earth.
We departed on Tuesday the 15th we settled on a 3 vehicle convoy consisting of Room Full of Strangers 15-passenger van, a rental van, and a honda hybrid. We loaded all the gear into the respective vehicles. We brought enough gear for what we joke that one of the venues could literally burned down and we would still be able to put on a show. The only thing we didn’t foresee happening was having our sound engineer ghost on us like 25 minutes before we were set to leave. Not like we were gonna let that stop us we just decided to split his duties among the remaining touring party. Continue reading

Godless America Mixtape Vol. 2
The van is packed, and we’re ready to Leave for Jacksonville. Casey is feeling much better, which I will take as a good omen. The van is JAM packed. Looks like a tour van to me.
I am finally posting my tour journal. I guess this is just for all you curious cats who don’t get to go rolling around the country with a bunch of stinky punks in your van and wondered what it is like. Hopefully a peek into my perspective will satisfy some of your voyeuristic desires. This tour occurred in November. If you wanna read it here it comes. One day at a time….
While cleaning around the house we stumbled upon a dusty box. When we opened it it was to our surprise that we had discovered some long lost copies of the now four year old split cassette with Chicken & Whiskey / Tam Tam The Sandwich Man & The Magical Sugar Cookies. These have been long out of print this was for a tour they did together way back in 2011. Tam Tam was headed out to SXSW and Chicken & Whiskey split back off home after Houston.
Chicken & Whiskey – Fuck The State
Tam Tam The Sandwich Man & The Magical Sugar Cookies – Reading Rainbow
