Fresh off their Kickstarted national tour with Terry Malts in support of No Future,the band’s first full-length out on HoZac, Wax Idols are playing their “official” record release show at Vitus Lounge in Oakland next Saturday, December 3rd with Burnt Ones, Manatee, and Cruel Summer. If you haven’t listened to the album just yet, it’s great. I have been streaming it at work on Spotify (along with the new Oh Sees record) pretty much non-stop and recommend you give it a listen. The Vitus show will also be celebrating a new Manatee‘s single on SLR, entitled “Single Payer Class War.” RSVP + more info on the Facebook event page.
Singer Hether Fortune’s other band, Blasted Canyons, play Positive Destruction’s second showcase event at Thee Parkside, Thursday December 15th. Read more about the showcase here.
Check out this jangly, discordant jam from our friends in POW!. “Cyberattack!!” is the second song off the band’s inaugural EP release Pretend There, which you can grab on their bandcamp. Catch them at Impose Presents next week, and in December at our second annual showcase at Thee Parkside.
