Troubled Hubble is bringing its rough and tumble brand of hyperdrive to folks all over the United States this June and July. The steamroller tour is already in progress, including shows with the Wrens and Maximo Park, from Newcastle, England! Red, white and blue-blooded Americans all over are clamoring for a shot at this sensational live show. Here are the dates. The power’s in your hands now.
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again—Troubled Hubble’s new “Making Beds In A Burning House” will be available on red vinyl on July 26th! That’s RED as in Red Dawn, the first-ever PG-13 rated movie. VINYL as in the perfect material for a summer pair of underpants. What more could you ask for?
Irving will be unleashing their fists of fury at the Troubadour on June 16. alaska! and The Green & Yellow TV will be opening the evening to round out this fabulous all-star LA showdown. Get there early, place your bets, and hang onto your seats as the five Irvings release a whole new load of pop heroics. Irving will be playing a host of new, unreleased songs. You cannot buy recordings of these gems—the only way to hear them is to attend.
Telegraphs from Berlin are dotting and dashing off like nobody’s business these days. Apparently, Irving is receiving lots of l-o-v-e from a radio free Europe. Hobby Deluxe in Germany has released “L-O-V-E” on its “pop you 4” compilation. If you live overseas and prefer good airwaves to bad, call your favorite radio station and request Irving.
The NHL may be LOCKED-out this season, but that won’t put an end to the Hockey Night
With dueling guitars a la the Allman Brothers and Thin Lizzy, and double drummers a la the Grateful Dead and early Genesis, Hockey Night is going to require a lot more than mere labor disputes to keep it out of the rock rink. These Minneapolis natives carve the kinds of songs that skate back and forth from the whimsy of obvious influences (Pavement), to the valiance of unlikely heroes (Boston, Journey). Not since the heyday of Rush has the great white North hocked the kind of rock that can both cause a grown man to cry and ignite a bench-clearing brawl. And this July, Eenie Meenie is happy to be releasing Hockey Night’s “Keep Guessin’” on vinyl. Stay tuned for more details.
PINE*am will be back on the East coast—will you?
Apparently, fans didn’t get enough of PINE*am, and, to be perfectly honest, PINE*am didn’t get enough of you. Due to the overwhelming fan response last month, these three lovable cyber-composers of electro-pop will be back to rock the North American stage. Check our shows pagefor tentative August tour dates.
You can hear PINE*am’s “Pull The Rabbit Ears” online at myspace.com and very own iTunessite. We must warn you that one listen leads to two leads to ten leads to one-hundred. Proceed with caution.
