Fest 9 in Gainesville, FL October 29th-31st

We're happy to announce that this year, we'll be making the trek down to Gainesville, Florida to play FEST! If you're like us and you don't really know exactly what part of Florida Gainesville is, we looked up a map this morning and here's what we found:

It should take us about 20 hours to drive down from New York, and we'll be sure to make some updates happen while we're on the road. We're also in the process of setting up some shows while we make our way down, so stay tuned.

All of us are super excited, and we've thought a lot about what we hope to get out of our time there. As always, we'll have free zines and politicized writings for people to pick up at our merch table with the hopes of using music/popular education as a way to plug people into local organizing projects. We hope to have many conversations with both musicians, punks, and Gainesvillains about creating a true politicized music scene--a scene that goes beyond subcultural genre-based shows and moves towards creating spaces where musicians march with the masses, organizing, strategizing, and taking action until we create the world we want to see....... Okay, okay, we're not going to accomplish all of these things at Fest, but we promise, as always, that we'll try. Hope to see you there!

Album up for Donation-Based Download

Hey yall,

So most of you know that our album came out in late May, and most of you have probably already gotten a copy. BUT, if you haven't, and if you're just hearing of us now, you can get a copy of our album at whatever price you can afford! If you have $0, pay $0, if you have $10, pay $10. And if you really want to support what we're doing, you can even give more! Also, if you haven't already noticed, we've added a few pages to the site, including a link to our past zines! So if you haven't already checked them out, Zine 2 is mostly a random assortment of politicized writings, with one essay on Green Capitalism co-written by Charlene and Adam. Zine 3 has a whole section of poetry dedicated to anarcha feminism from a queer feminist perspective.

So if you haven't yet gotten a chance, check them out. Stay tuned for our next zine, which will be released at our show with Ryan Harvey on October 23rd! Be there or be square........
