Shows / News

It's promo week! Spective Audio releases CS1 and CS2 will be available on March 2, 2010. Please feel free to send pre-sale inquiries to

-Go support Travis Bird and Dan Burke, of Notice Recordings, at Enemy on February 19. The doors are at 9, show at 10:30. They are a guitar duo that utilizes driving, abrasive rhythmic attacks and swirling, chiming cycles, calling to mind the clausterphobia and tension of early Sonic Youth and Television with their guitar timbre. Their most recent recordings are available from their WNUR appearance, and they have a forthcoming release with Notice, 2 Guitars, No waiting.

-'Spective Audio / Double Phantom /[ove:evo] artist The N.E.C. will be busy at the end of February/early March, playing at 529 in Atlanta on February 19, with Jeff The Brotherhood and Screaming Females. They are supporting Man or Astro-Man?, alongside Atlanta psych-rockers All The Saints, on March 5, 2010 at Whirlyball in Roswell, Georgia.

Their cassette, SPCTV CS1 B-Sides, will be available at both shows, and the 529 show will be the first time you can pick up one of those tapes in person. Also be sure to check out their latest studio release, Is, available from [ove:evo]/Double Phantom.

-In general, support the work of Evan Lindorff-Ellery, sound artist, and Travis Bird, multi-instrumentalist, and their endeavor, Notice Recordings. They are two of the most principled musicians and fanatics about music that I have ever met, and their vision is available on cassette.

-Check out what local soul band Ol' Boy are doing on 735 W. Sheridan. They are hosting a series of shows at Angel Island. Low cover costs, new artists, and open mic featured.

-Leavitt/Ours will be playing at Angel Island March 10, showcasing new songs after a three month hibernation. New songs are jazzy, ambient, poppy, and just plain fun.
