So, I recently got back home from the Empire! Empire! show that I booked, the second time I’ve done a show for them here in Pittsburgh. This time around it was at my friend’s house, and it went SO WELL. It was really hot in the basement where the bands played but I still had a ton of fun. They even played Year Of The Rabbit which is my favorite song by them! I hung out with Keith and Cathy and the rest of the crew, along with the members of Heats Of Formation, who also tore it up. All the bands were wonderful and it felt good to put on such a rad show.
I also bought a couple things from Keith’s roving CYLS distro and from Heats Of Formation’s little distro…
- Hop Along - Get Disowned on vinyl
- Merchant Ships - For Cameron on cassette
- TWIABP - Formlessness on cassette
- Spirit Night - One Man Houses on cassette
Dan Katz also gave me a copy of HoF’s newest 7”, Indoctrinates Blank, for free! Cause he’s such a nice guy!
