(The illustrious VTO & Magpies split 7”)
Well it looks like Missoula is once again primed for the lndian Summer show season. Don’t really know why this is, but there are always a ton of good things happening in town right around the time the college kids are back, they’re puking on front lawns at 3pm on a Tuesday, and the whole cavalcade just keeps steaming along til whenever it gets too cold to just wear a sweater out there. Nice. There are some things you, dear reader, should probably know about (assuming you don’t already, you know).
First of all, local vets VTO and The Magpies are gearing up to release a split 7” (pictured above) at the Ole (pronounced “Oly”) Beck VFW Post #209 on Friday, September 13th. That’s this Friday. They’ll be joined by Thee Hounds and I believe the whole thing is $2. Cool, huh? Even cooler, there’s this video by Cade Donovan:
Also happening this Friday, there’s a FREE show at Stage 112 featuring the likes of Needlecraft, Skin Flowers, Jacob Milstein,and a new band featuring members of both Needlecraft and Baby & Bukowski: Pancakes. 9pm time I believe, too.
BUT DUDE, there’s gonna be cool stuff Saturday, too! Stay tuned for that…we’ll post something tomorrow.
ALSO…we don’t book shows too often (sorry touring bands, we busy) but we finally got one set up for Thursday, October 3rd at the ZACC. There’ll be more info on that in a little bit but in the meantime, check out this stuff by one of the dudes (Punishment) playing the thing:
